PBR batters didn’t waste anytime bouncing back after the defense gave up four runs in the top of the seventh inning against Hartford last week at Rickeman Field.
Nate Henry’s two-run single capped the five-run seventh and put PBR ahead 7-6. Henry and Landon Klock each had a single, double and two runs batted in for PBR. Preston Davis and Dan Conrad each singled twice for PBR.
In a preview of this year’s Take Me Out to the Ball game, the bats from both dugouts were cold in Canova Tuesday, May 28, but they heated up for the home team just in time and Dell Rapids PBR saw a late lead slip away.
Canova trailed 1-0 to start the eighth inning but two runs in the bottom half, the go ahead coming off a single by Nick Koepsell, was enough and PBR fell 2-1.
