St. Paul Tops Seniors

A big first inning by the offense and a masterful pitching performance by Matt Exstrom was more than enough for the Kearney County First Bank Seniors to subdue St. Paul 10-0 on June 22 at Minden’s Ollie Bjorklund Field. First Bank’s record vaults to 5-7.
The seven-run first inning for First Bank was proliferated with five batters reaching on walks, two by errors and a couple others via fielder’s choices mixed in with throwing miscues. The lone hit of the inning, a single by Sturgis Hanson, produced a couple of RBIs.
First Bank came up with a three-run third inning to build the lead to 10-0, which was the eventual final score. In the frame, Hanson again had a two-run single.
