Colin Karst of Dell Rapids PBR got the starting nod in a Cornbelt League game against Flandreau Sunday night, June 23rd. For the first seven innings he was in control of the bats of the Flandreau hitters, allowing just two runs on five hits, while hte PBR offense scored six times in the first seven innings. It appeared that PBR would finish this game in a hurry. Not to be the case though as Landon Klock came in relief of Karst in the top of the 8th inning. Klock faced nine hitters giving up four runs on three hits. Dell Rapids PBR also had three very costly errors in the inning that allowed Flandreau to tie the game at 6-6. In the bottom of the 8th, Dells responded by taking advantage of some miscues by the Flandreau defense. PBR managed one hit, but scored three runs, including two runs by walks. PBR would escape with a 9-6 win, their third Cornbelt League win of the year.
Klock went 2-4 with two singles. Dan Conrad, Sheldon Davis, and Clarence Fjellanger each had a double. Despite the poor fielding in the 8th inning by Dells, PBR managed to turn three double plays in the game.
Dell Rapids PBR will travel to Harrisburg on Tuesday, June 25th, and will host Aurora on Thursday, June 27th, in upcoming games.
