Resorters league baseball: Brandon-Evansville improves to 5-1
The Brandon-Evansville Bluedogs moved their winning streak to five games after another weekend sweep that improved the team to 5-1 this early season.
The Bluedogs knocked out Urbank-Parkers Prairie 10-0 on Sunday after taking care of Miltona 12-2 the day before. Brandon-Evansville took control of the Bombers early on Sunday with seven runs through the first four innings.
Collin Modahl went 4-for-4 with a double and four RBIs to lead a Bluedogs team that finished with 14 hits on the night. Nate Meissner, Lee Nelson and Ryan Hendrickson each had two hits apiece and combined for five runs scored.
That gave starter Adam Johnson a lot of room to work with. Johnson went 7 1/3 innings, allowing six hits and four walks, while striking out eight. Kyle Bruns came on to work the final 2/3 of an inning to close things out.
Modahl gave the Bluedogs a solid start against Miltona on Saturday. He allowed just one run on two hits and a walk through seven innings. Modahl struck out six before giving way to Meissner in the eighth.
The Brandon-Evansville offense set the tone for that weekend with 12 hits against the Tigers. Johnson did his job from the plate in this game, going 3-for-5. He finished with a triple and a home run that led to five RBIs and three runs scored. Monte Hinzmann also had a big game with four hits, two runs scored and two RBIs.
The Bluedogs will try to build on their five-game winning streak in their only game this weekend. They will welcome in Osakis tonight, Friday, for an 8 p.m. first pitch against the Hawks.
