First-place Stingers knock off La Crosse


WILLMAR — Baseball is a game of inches.

That was no truer than Wednesday night when Jack Ross laced a two-out, two-run double that hit the left-field foul line, and the Willmar Stingers beat the La Crosse Loggers 3-2 at Bill Taunton Stadium.

The fourth-inning two-base hit — coming on an 0-2 count against Loggers’ starter Adam Cline — gave the Stingers a 3-1 lead that held up the rest of the way.
