Martins prevail over Saints

Kyle Lieser hit a solo home run in the bottom of the 12th inning to lift St. Martin over Elrosa in an incredible Stearns County League game tonight.

The final score at Ray Weber Field was 2-1.

Through the first 10 innings, Scott Lieser held Elrosa to six hits with 15 strikeouts while issuing just one walk. Ben Schroeder got the win by pitching two innings of scoreless relief.

St. Martin left 13 runners stranded, while Elrosa left eight on base through the 12-inning marathon.

Next: the Elrosa Saints (5-2, 3-1 SCL) play at Spring Hill on Sunday, July 12 in another SCL contest.

At Farming tonight, the host Flames upended Spring Hill by a 5-3 score. Farming hosts Richmond tomorrow night at 8 p.m. at Schleper Bros. Stadium.

Spring Hill travels to Lake Henry for a border battle game on Sunday, July 5 at 1:30 p.m.
