The Verndale Pirates shook off a dominating performance by Sebeka's Alex Brockpahler in Game 1 Tuesday to claim the nightcap 6-3 for their first victory of the 2010 season. Brockpahler surrendered only three hits as Sebeka claimed the opener 7-0. The Sebeka lefty walked thee while striking out 10. The Pirates helped the Trojans by committing five errors. Clay Cottrell took the mound for Verndale in Game 2 and notched the victory as the Pirates triumphed 6-4. Dallas Ehrmantraut collected a pair of hits for Verndale while Cottrell reached twice on a base hit and a walk.
The Breckenridge Cowboys capitalized on four Wadena-Deer Creek errors Tuesday to hand Kyle Dykhoff's Wadena-Deer Creek Wolverines a 3-2 loss on the local diamond. Casey Materi, who had two of Breck's eight hits, drove in Zack Hegge with the game-winning run in the sixth inning. Walker Busse and Preston Kappes out-dueled Derrick Rude and Kevin Tumberg in the windy conditions. Busse worked the first four frames and struck out four while surrendering three hits and two walks. Kappes walked two and fanned five in his relief role. The WDC hurlers did not allow an earned run.
