Cory Tumberg sparked a 17-hit attack Tuesday to give Wadena-Deer Creek a 12-2 victory in Game 1 and a split in a Mid-State Conference twinbill with Staples-Motley.

Tumberg had four hhits and a pair of doubles in the opener while Jake Krause came up with two hits, including a double, and two runs. Derrick Rude went 2-for-4 in the win with a solo home run. Kenny Sakry banged out three hits in four trips to the plate and drove in tow runs.

Ryan Redfield gained the mound win for WDC while Alex Jansson took the loss.

Jansson ripped three hits, including a round-tripper, and scored four times as the Cardinals came back to win the nightcap 8-6.

Jake Rude went 2-for-3 with two ribbies and a homer. Derrick Rude was 2-for-4 with a double and three RBIs. Tumberg added two more hits.

Jeremy Hoemberg picked up the victory on the hill and David Najjar was hung with the loss.

The Wolverines dropped to 4-6 in Mid-State Conference play and 5-8 overall.
