Fergus Falls begins state tournament run

Fargo, ND (WDAY TV) - The Fergus Falls baseball team returned to a friendly place this afternoon, St Cloud, site of some great wins the last two years at the state tournament. Looking to start another run today.

Facing Kasson-Mantorville in the 2-Aquarters. 0-0 in the 3rd...2 on, 2 outs for Fergus. Nick Heck lifts a fly to left; should end the inning, but Riley Donovan loses it in the sun! 2 runs score...(Donovan was only playing left because the starter was suspended for getting in a food fight at school!)...No joking.

Next batter Connor Swenson bloops a single to left that brings in Heck. Fergus with a 3-0 lead.

Plenty for Otters' starter Zach Rengel, who went the distance, tossing a complete game, 4-hit shutout with 9 strikeouts (on a season low 84 pitches...he was masterful!) 4-0 Otters...that's your final.
