Red Sox set to play SF Saints Sunday

The Brookings Cubby's team cancelled out of their scheduled doubleheader in Vermillion against the Red Sox on Sunday.

The Red Sox will try again for a Sunday home game this weekend with the Sioux Falls Saints scheduled to come in to Prentis Park for a 2 p.m. contest.

The Red Sox lost for only the second time this season up to that point last Wednesday in a marathon 13-8 loss to Brandon Valley at Prentis Park.

The game was still tied 5-5 through four innings until Brandon managed a run without a hit in the fifth and four runs on two hits and three walks in the sixth to assume command.  Three runs in the final two innings gave the visitors a comfort zone which more than offset three Red Sox runs in their last three innings.

Tyler Candor had three hits and a run batted in for Vermillion while Reese Steckler drove home four runs with his two hits.  Travis Hanson and Steve Johnson also hit safely twice for the Red Sox, who outhit Brandon 11-10.

Bobby Lee started on the mound for the Sox and worked till the troublesome middle innings when Kasey Neumann took over.
