MoonDogs stifle Stingers


MANKATO — The Willmar Stingers were leading the Northwoods League in runs scored going into their game against the Mankato MoonDogs on Sunday at Franklin Rogers Park.

That didn’t faze Mankato starter Cameron Giannini, who struck out nine in a masterful two-hit performance over eight innings to beat the Stingers 2-1. 

With the temperature in Mankato in the low 80s, Giannini told AM 1230 KYSM in Mankato that he loves throwing in warm weather.
