Goeden rallies Wolverines for split of twinbill
Jonathan Goeden went the distance as Wadena-Deer Creek rallied from a 6-4 loss in Game 1 to earn a doubleheader split Friday with Park Rapids in Mid-State Conference play.
Goeden scattered seven hits in racking up his mound win.
Goeden also supplied some of the pop at the plate with one hit and one RBI. Jake Krause, Matt Laughlin and Christian Berg combined for three hits, three runs and three RBIs.
Sam Coborn was the big stick for Park Rapids going 3-for-4 at the plate.
Chris Goplerud went 2-for-3 at the plate with a double in Game 1. Cory Odland, David Dirks and Zach Eystad joined up to contribute three hits, two runs and two RBIs.
The Panthers broke a 3-3 tie in a three-run sixth.
Krause went 2-for-4 to lead the Wolverines at the plate. Krause and Goeden both drove in runs.
"Park Rapids capitalized on our defensive errors in the bottom of the sixth and that was the difference," WDC Head Coach Kyle Dykhoff said.
David Najjar was saddled with the loss while Drew Bade chalked up the win.
