Morris/CA 8, YME 4
Yellow Medicine East dropped a game with an 8-4 West Central Conference South loss to Morris/Chokio-Alberta Tuesday evening in Morris.
Chandler Erickson was the driving force behind the Tiger’s offense as he drove in five runs on three hits. Erickson hit a two-run, two-out single in the third and a two-run triple in what would be a breakout five-run fifth inning for the Tigers.
The Sting threatened to rally in the top of the seventh, but Jake Torgerson came in to save the game for the Tigers in relief of Sam Mattson.
Austin Thorstad did most of YME’s damage offensively with a three-RBI perfomance on a 2-for-3 evening.
The Sting now enter a run of three straight WCC games; kicking off the tilt Thursday in Benson.
