Prep baseball: Arrows get road sweep
REDWOOD FALLS — Pipestone Area got two big runs in the sixth inning to win a tight ballgame in the opener, only to run away with the nightcap to sweep its doubleheader with Redwood Valley Saturday.
The Arrows snapped a 2-2 tie to take a 4-2 victory in the first game before five runs in both the fourth and fifth led to an 11-1 triumph to complete the sweep.
Pipestone jumped out to a 2-0 lead in game one, but two runs in the home half of the second knotted things up. Defense and pitching took over from there, until two runs in the top of the seventh proved to be the winning runs for the Arrows.
Brady Bos picked up the win in relief for the visitors when he struck out four during four perfect innings of relief work. Dominic Freese got the start and struck out eight during the first four innings.
Jacoby Hunt went 2-fo-4 with a run scored and Jaymes Zollner was 1-for-2 with a run and an RBI.
In the second game, the Cardinals scored first with a run in the top of the first. That was all they mustered, however, as the Pipestone bats heated up late. They plated five runs in the fourth and five more in the fifth to end it.
Justin Rops had a big day at the plate. He was 3-for-3 with three RBIs and two runs scored. Trav Thomssen went 2-for-4 with two batted in while Mason Delany went 2-for-2 with a run driven in and another scored.
The Arrows take on Worthington at 4 p.m. in a doubleheader on Thursday.
