Timing is everything.
Frazee's Jason Buhr broke an early season 0-7 slump when he hammered a grand slam in the second to put the Hornets up 4-2 and key a 12-7 victory over Breckenridge Thursday.
The hits kept coming, as Josh Hoskins followed with a two-run liner just inside the left field foul pole to make it 6-3 after three innings.
Breck made it 6-4 with a run in the fourth, then added three in the fifth, capped by a two-out Nick Conzemius single to make it 7-6
Frazee opened the bottom of the fifth with a Jake Sailer single, an error, and Jesse Oelfke's two-run base hit to put the Hornets up for good.
Dylan Savary followed with a two-out single, Kerry Lockrem's single drove in two and Dahlgren punched another base hit to make it 11-7.
Dave Warweg knocked in a run in the sixth to make the final 12-7.
The Cowboys were lead by Alex Jenson, who went 4-4 with three doubles and two RBI. Spencer Beech had a single and double in four trips.
Frazee's Jake Sailer went 3-4, all singles. Buhr's four RBI lead the way, as Lockrem, Hoskins and Oelfke all drove in two runs each. Lockrem, Dahlgren, Oelfke and Savary all had two hits apiece as the Hornets collected 16 hits.
Breckenridge weren't phased by Frazee's 0.26 ERA (one earned run in the season's first 27 innings) as they pounded Hornet pitching for 11 hits, including five doubles, which was good for six earned runs. Hornet pitching struck out six, walked four and hit one.
"Down for the first time all season, I was very happy to see the kids come from behind twice to finally prevail," said Frazee head coach Joe Sailer.
