At Rupert, the East Idaho Rockies swept a Double A doubleheader from Minico on Monday, rallying past the Storm 6-5 and 7-5.

The Rockies scored twice in the fifth and pulled ahead with three runs in the sixth in the opener, scoring the tying and go-ahead runs on a wild pitch and an error. Nick Fuller finished 3 for 4 with an RBI for the Rockies.

A four-run third inning, highlighted by back-to-back RBI singles by Moki Jensen and Trey Saathoff, proved enough of a cushion for the Rockies (15-20).

The Rockies are at the Twin Falls Cowboys today for a doubleheader beginning at 4 p.m.
