GEORGETOWN, Ky. - Home runs by Zach Monroe and Matt Ciolek helped post Asbury to an early lead as Jon Wes Adams earned his second win in as many starts in a 9-6 win over Georgetown on Thursday night.
Adams pitched 7 2/3 innings giving up just three earned runs on four hits while striking out five and only giving up two walks.
