Camden

LQPV 6, RTR 4

MADISON — Lac qui Parle Valley clinched the Camden Conference title with a 6-4 win over Russell-Tyler-Ruthton on Thursday in Madison.

The Eagles only managed 3 hits against RTR’s Shay Wabeke, but walked 7 times and all 3 hits drove in runs.

The big blow came in the sixth on Austin Haas’ three-run double after Wabeke loaded the bases with three straight two-out walks.

That gave the Eagles a 6-1 lead, which provided valuable insurance runs for when RTR rallied for three runs in the seventh.

LQPV also scored in the third on an RBI single from Ben Morken and again in the fifth on Preston Kraft’s two-run homer.

Morken pitched a complete game, getting the final two outs of the game on flyouts with the tying run at the plate.

The Eagles (9-0, 13-0) will host Dawson-Boyd today.
