The mighty Red continued their road warrior ways, defeating Forest Lake Maroon 13-8 this evening at Southwest Jr. High School in lovely (if windswept) Forest Lake. The Red got off to a quick start, then fought off a furious Forest Lake rally and put the game away with some timely late-inning hitting. Ben was officially 1-2 with a walk and scored an important run in the decisive 5th inning.
The win puts the Red's record at 2-3. They will next take the field back at Bucher Park on Friday at 6:30 p.m. for a game against Shoreview Navy. If you want to know about 13-year old in-house baseball in the northern suburbs, you'll always get the skinny at Mr. Dilettante.
