Lawson Crouse scored a pair of goals, his first of the season, as the Tucson Roadrunners beat the Bakersfield Condors 4-1 Saturday night at Tucson Arena.

The win closed out a 5-1 homestand for the Roadrunners (8-1-2) who are in first place in the AHL’s Pacific Division, have now earned a point in ten consecutive games and sit atop the entire league with a win percentage of .818.

Rookie goaltender Hunter Miska extended his perfect record in net, stopping 15-of-16 shots to advance to 5-0.

Defensemen Kyle Wood and Kyle Capobianco both had two assists, the first multipoint effort from both this season.
