Shockers outlast Angels 3-2
It was another close game between the Wadena-Deer Creek Shockers and Detroit Lakes Angels, as the visiting W-DC squad came out on top 3-2, keyed by a two-run seventh inning.
The two teams dueled to a scoreless tie heading into the sixth inning when Shocker Jordan Wohlwend reached third base on a one-out error after the throw on his bunt careened down the right field line.
He later scored on a two-out single by Jamie Nordlund for the 1-0 lead.
In the top of the seventh, JJ Truax singled to start the inning, which was proceeded by a two-out walk to Seth Hamann.
Wohlwend once again produced at the plate, this time with a two-run single to center for the 3-0 advantage.
The Angels responded, starting in the seventh with Nick Omberg singling to start the inning, as the throw was off to first which allowed the DL second baseman to reach second.
Chris Gilson singled with one out to bring in Omberg and cut the score to 3-1.
DL had one last gasp to extend the game to extra innings, as Doug Dickey walked to start the bottom of the ninth.
A pinch-hit single by Zach Fulmer, led to a Bryan Buhr single to center to load the bases off of reliever Wohlwend.
Taylor Fuhs gained the RBI on a fielder's choice at second base, which allowed Dickey to score.
With two strikes on Kyle Danner the Angels trying an early-lead steal, Fuhs made a break to second base and Fulmer was unfortunately thrown out at home on a close play to end the game.
Matt Huberty started on the mound for the Angels and went the first seven, giving up three runs, two earned on seven hits.
He walked two and struck out five, while Justin Berg pitched the final two innings allowed two hits in his second outing on the season.
