The Maple Lake Lakers met the Buffalo Bulldogs for the second time this season on Wednesday, June 18. 
Maple Lake went to work early, scoring a combined six runs in the first three innings while holding Buffalo scoreless during that stretch. 
The Bulldogs tried to get things going in the fourth and fifth innings but only managed two runs.  Up 9-2 in the seventh, the Lakers scored seven runs and held Buffalo to finish the game by the 10-run rule.  
The Maple Lake offense was efficient, scoring 16 runs off 19 hits, three walks and four Buffalo errors. Brian Redemske was a home run away from the cycle, tallying two singles, a double, and a triple and three runs batted in.
