WILLMAR — Zack Tillery hit a grand slam and Chris Barnett added a three-run shot to power the Willmar Stingers past the Alexandria Blue Anchors 9-6 Wednesday at Bill Taunton Stadium.

It was the first home run of the season for both players and their bombs put the Stingers up 7-1 by the third inning.

Stingers’ starter Sheldon Lee scattered five hits over six innings and struck out two to pick up the win.

Michael Murray finished it with 2.2 innings for his first save.
