Brookings Bandits take victory over Post #1 by Jim Prosser "We were 1-3 for the weekend; however we played our best baseball of the season, thus far. We continue to improve and learn the game," said Devin Schwiesow, coach of the Vermillion Post #1 baseball team.
After scoring seven runs in the first two innings, an error, walk, and three base hits resulting in four unearned runs after two outs created a situation that was difficult to overcome. Holding a 7-6 lead after two innings, Vermillion was shut out the remainder of the game, and Brookings prevailed 10-7.
Winning pitcher � Doyle Price; losing pitcher � Jay Merrigan.
