Stingers take out Honkers


WILLMAR — Willmar’s Tyler Leffler hit a go-ahead two-run home run in the fifth inning, Andrew Woeck pitched well in his Stingers debut, bolstered by a bullpen that had four strike outs in the final two innings of a 6-3 Northwoods League victory over Rochester on Monday at Bill Taunton Stadium.

Marc Flores had two doubles, driving in one run and scoring another, and Danny Brennan had a run-scoring double in the sixth as the Stingers kept pace with North Division-leading Waterloo.
