Vermillion's Red Sox amateur team extended its winning streak to three and its season's record to 4-3 with a pair of comfortable wins last week.
The Red Sox whipped the Elk Point Stags last Wednesday, 9-1, riding the seven-inning pitching of Garrett Linhardt to victory. Linhardt struck out four during his tenure on the mound. Kasey Neumann pitched the final two frames, getting five of his six outs on strikeouts.
On Sunday in Akron the Rebels were no match for the Red Sox, who stormed to a 13-2 victory. This time it was Neumann who started, going six innings and fanning two, and Linhardt who finished up, pitching the seventh and final stanza and getting one strikeout in the process.
Colby Lessmann stroked a home run for the Red Sox.
Vermillion is scheduled to host the Larchwood Diamonds at 2 p.m. Sunday at Prentis Park. Another home game will be Tuesday at 7:30 against Yankton. Next Thursday the Sox play the Sioux City Saints at the Dakota Valley field.
