NWL Baseball: Stingers fall victim to Rox bloopers

WILLMAR — Sometimes baseballs just find holes.

St. Cloud cranked out 12 hits, just two for extra bases, and turned them into five runs, giving the Rox a 5-4 win over the Willmar Stingers on Thursday at Bill Taunton Stadium.

“It was one of those nights where their ground balls fell in the right spots,” Stingers’ manager Drew Saberhagen said. “They had a couple bloopers that were in there. That’s going to happen.”
