Baseball: MACCRAY upends RCW, 5-1
SACRED HEART -- Jordan Smith and Justin Koenen combined on a two-hitter as MACCRAY tipped Renville County West 5-1 Monday in Camden Conference baseball.
Smith pitched four scoreless innings, allowing only a Tyler Kleinhuizen double and a Mike Fischer single while fanning eight.
Koenen threw the last three frames. The Jaguars' run, scored by Phil Erickson who had walked, was unearned in the sixth.
MACCRAY (13-0, 18-0) got all the runs it would need off RCW starter Adam Loe in the first. After Tyler Steen singled and Zach Thissen doubled, Ben Ruter's single chased both home.
Takumi Ito threw three innings of one-hit relief for the Jaguars.
