In Monday’s game against Brandon-Evansville, Browerville got the bats going in what was a 13-3 win in six innings.


“We just didn’t play good baseball; it’s that simple,” B-E head coach Brian Perleberg said. “Against quality opponents like Browerville, you can’t make mistakes like we did and expect to compete. We are looking forward to the next three days of practice, which will give us time to work on a few things and then get ready to host Pelican Rapids on Friday evening.”

B-E got on the board in the first inning with a Dezmond White RBI single, but Browerville responded with three runs in the bottom half of the first inning.

Riley Perlebrg had two hits, a run, and a stolen base for B-E, while White and Kian Gackle had hits.

B-E hosts Pelican Rapids at 6:30 p.m. on Friday.
