ADRIAN -- Behind a four-hit shutout from starting pitcher John Archer, the Adrian American Legion baseball team defeated Luverne 8-0 Friday in Adrian. "Luverne's always been a tough team for us," Archer said. "I came in thinking that it was going to be a good game anyway. Greg (Kruger) came and told me to mix it up, and that was about all we had to do." Adrian head coach Greg Kruger said the key to subduing the Luverne offense was changing speeds of pitches. "Against the Southwest Conference teams, you have to mix it up," Kruger said.

"We've been there the last two years," Pipestone Area head coach Rick Zollner said.
