Lakers dominate foes


A delayed start and slow play made for a long night Wednesday, May 21, at Irish Stadium.  The Mound Mallards and Maple Lake Lakers combined for 20 runs in the first two innings with the Lakers up 12-8, en route to a 20-10 Laker win.  
Starter Jeremy Schmidt found his rhythm in the third and held Mound to one run over the next three innings to get the win. Ben Jungers mopped up the last two innings by throwing six strikeouts while giving up one run.  
On offense, Brian Russell hit two doubles with four runs batted in, Nate Johnson went four-for-four and had three RBIs, and Matt Bergstom got four RBIs on two hits.
