Jeff Knight belted a two-run homer and scored twice to left the host Hamiota Red Sox to a 5-2 win over the Souris Cardinals on Thursday in the South West Baseball League.
Ryan Brooks went 2-for-4 and scored a run for Hamiota.
Logan McGonigal struck out 10 in a five-hit pitching performance for the win. Zane Lehman and a pair of relievers combined to pitch a four-hitter for the Cardinals, but four walks hurt Evan Brereton’s cause as he gave up three runs — two earned — and took the loss despite throwing two hitless innings. Andrew Janz led the Souris offence, going 2-for-3 with a double and an RBI.
