Rowen homered in a ninth-inning Stingers' comeback to force extra innings, but Rochester would collect a 9-8 win in the 10th. The Honkers' third baseman at right is Brandon DeFazio.

Northwoods Baseball: Stingers edge the top Dogs


MANKATO -- Kenny Roberts drove in six runs with a pair of three-run home runs and the Willmar Stingers would need them all, holding on for a 6-5 Northwoods League victory over Mankato on Sunday.

Roberts hit his bombs in the first and third innings, giving Willmar a 6-0 lead. Mankato chipped away at the Stingers' lead and had the tying run on base in the ninth before reliever Brady Anderson got the MoonDogs' Drew Stankiewicz to fly out at the warning track to end the game.
