There were two good signs Thursday as the Detroit Lakes Post 15 team opened up its annual Water Carnival Tournament at Washington Ballpark.

First, DL posted a 5-0 win over Fargo and secondly, it seems Post 15 ace Brock Johnson is back on track.

Johnson pitched his second strong game in a row, mowing down the Fargo hitters for the complete game victory and limiting them to just three hits.

He also posted a doughnut in the walk category, while striking out eight.

Only one Fargo runner reached second, while Johnson limited his pitch count by going through the first three batters in five innings.

It took until the fourth inning for Post 15 to break onto the scoreboard with three runs, all with two outs.

After designated hitter Ben Lindquist drew a two-out walk, Aaron Gnoinsky hit a single and Andy Pederson drew a walk to load the bases.

A walk to Max Knoll brought in the first run, while two wild pitches put DL up 3-0.

The cushion grew to 5-0 on RBI hits by Jordan Manning and Lindquist in the fifth.

The Lakers picked up nine hits in the win, with Connor McLeod, Manning and Gnoinsky each recording two.

Post 15 rebounded with the win after a 14-4 loss to Moorhead earlier in the day, which was a make-up game from a June date.

The Blues put on a display of power, as John Cahill blasted two long homers and Lucas Henry's long ball off of T.J. Manning flew over right field and bounced off of Northshore Drive.

Braden Rahman also stroked a home run for the Blues' fourth of the game.

Moorhead picked up 13 hits off of T. J. Manning in five innings, while DL was limited to three.

Post 15 will play two more games Sunday to close out the Water Carnival Tournament, against Brandon, Manitoba, at 5 p.m. and Moorhead again at 8 p.m.
