Cougars’ Brickhouse earns first pro win
PEORIA — Bryan Brickhouse tossed a 1-hitter through 6 innings as he cruised to his first professional victory in the Kane County Cougars' 4-1 win over the Peoria Chiefs on Tuesday night at O'Brien Field.
Brickhouse (1-0) gave up a double to open the third inningy by Yasiel Balaguert, who advanced to third when Yaniel Cabezas reached on an error by third baseman Danny Mateo. Pin-Chieh Chen bounced into a double play to score Balaguert with an unearned run for the Chiefs (38-43, 3-9).
The Cougars (42-40, 8-4) had put Brickhouse in front before his first pitch when Jack Lopez singled and stole second before Jorge Bonifacio walked. A wild pitch from Joe Zeller (0-1) allowed both runners to advance a base. Michael Antonio singled off the glove of third baseman Wes Darvill to drive both runners home for a 2-0 lead.
Brickhouse and reliever Andrew Triggs made that lead stick through the first 8 innings. The Cougars finally added to it in the top of the ninth against Luis Liria. Bonifacio singled to start the inning and was at first with two outs when Julio Aparicio cranked an opposite-field home run. Malcom Culver earned his third save.
