With Sunday being designated ‘World Softball Day’ by the World Baseball Softball Confederation is was a great day for the Rhein Rockets to be in action.
The Rockets headed to Ituna for a doubleheader on neutral ground against the Rosebud Royals in Richardson Pioneer Men's Fastball League action.
In game one, with the Rockets the home side, Terry Peppler pitched a complete game for a 4-3 decision.
James Holowaty went the distance in the circle and was tagged with the loss for the Royals.
Holowaty would start game two for Rosebud, with Brett Peppler in the circle for Rhein.
Brett Peppler would help his own cause in the first inning hitting a two-run homer. He would later hit a second homer for two more runs-batted.
The two homers would help propel the Rockets to 13-5 win in five innings.
Next action for the Rockets is scheduled for Friday in Neudorf to face the Posse, then in Balcarres for doubleheader action Sunday against the Bronx.
