GF 4, Montevideo 0
Austin Vikander threw a three-hit shutout Monday as Granite Falls Legion Post 69 rolled on Montevideo for 4-0 victory.
Throwing a complete game, Vikander struck out four and walked four from the mound. He’d also put in his work offensively with a 2-for-3 two-RBI performance that included a double.
“We had another solid defensive game, and Austin pitched a gem,” said Post 69 manager Nick Richter. “We did a lot of the little things right, and just played a solid baseball game. Montevideo has a good team, and it was a good win for us. With playoffs starting soon, hopefully we can build some momentum and keep this rolling.”
Chris Jensen also had a nice night at the plate going 3-for-4 and scoring two runs. Elliot Carmany, meanwhile, picked up an RBI for Post 69 while going 1-for-4.
