The Muskegon Clippers remained hot on Tuesday as they beat the River City Rapids 5-4 at Marsh Field.

The Clippers (13-3), who have not lost a game in three weeks, rallied twice for the victory.

The Clippers are now tied with River City for the best record in the Michigan Summer Collegiate Baseball League.

Third baseman Ryan Dorow finished a triple short of the cycle for the Clippers. Outfielder John Jakoviak’s eighth-inning homer put Muskegon ahead for good after Dorow’s RBI double tied it an inning earlier.

Nick Eely threw three innings and picked up the win, while Ryan Butzer set down three of the four batters he faced in the ninth for the save.
