Minden Gets Two Wins

The Minden First Bank Juniors broke into the win column emphatically taking both games of a doubleheader 15-8 and 17-8 against Overton at Bjorklund Field on June 2. The wins up the Juniors record to 2-7. 

 In game one, the score was tied at 7-7 after two innings. First Bank’s three-run first was highlighted by Dedric Cervantes’ two-run double and a four-run second included an RBI-single from Orrin Kuehn and a two-run single from Cervantes. 

Overton scored only one run the rest of the way but First Bank scored two in the third, four in the fourth and two more in the fifth to open up a sizable lead.
