The Greyhounds posted a 10-2 win in LP-A just last week, but the Raiders (5-5) were able to turn the tables, thanks in part to sophomore Mason Swegarden's 15-strikeout performance.

"Mason threw terrific once again, giving up no earned runs and trusting his defense behind him," said LP-A head coach Taylor Fuhs.

"We didn't have the timely hitting we needed at times, but I am proud of my guys keeping the pressure on and battling the entire game."

The Raiders scored twice in the top of the ninth to break a 2-2 tie, with Mike Hamre coming in for the bottom half of the frame to pick up the save.

Swegarden and Dylan Omvig each had two hits, while Fosston was plagued by six errors.

The Raiders will have back-to-back games Monday and Tuesday with a road trip to Brandon-Evansville and a home game against Fertile-Beltrami Tuesday.
