College baseball: Warriors split doubleheader
WILLMAR — Brandon Bornhorst pitched a complete game and Erich Prokosch and Jake Comnick delivered key hits to help the Ridgewater baseball team win 7-5 in the second game of a MCAC doubleheader Monday at Taunton Stadium.
The Warriors dropped the first game 8-0.
The Warriors trailed 5-3 in the fifth inning of game two when Comnick ripped a pinch-hit double to drive in two runs and tie the game.
In the sixth, Prokosch hit a two-run homer for the game-winner.
Bornhorst allowed two earned runs, walked just one and struck out six.
The Warriors are 1-1 in the MCAC and 1-5 overall. The team has had to cancel 16 games — eight doubleheaders — because of poor spring weather and field conditions.
They play the St. John’s JV at 1 p.m. today at Taunton Stadium, then travel to Fergus Falls for a league doubleheader on Wednesday.
