Game Recap

The Proctor Rails took a 1-0 lead in the sixth inning on Ian Scherber's solo home run. That was enough for starting pitcher Jake Lewis, who pitched a complete game shutout, allowing only two hits and striking out five while not walking a batter.

Minneapolis Washburn's Josh Pierce pitched well but took the loss, giving up five hits and one run while striking out five and walking one.

The Rails move on to face St. Cloud Cathedral Friday at 2:30 on Dick Putz Field.
