VFW Baseball: Benson upends Willmar in District 5 playoffs
WILLMAR -- Morgan Staton, one of the smaller players on the diamond Tuesday, played big and that helped the No. 5 Benson VFW tip No. 4 Willmar 6-4 in the first-round of the District 5 Tournament.
Staton gave up 10 hits but walked only one. His pitches got more difficult to hit in the late innings when his curve ball started to bite.
Cole Hagen's leadoff single in the bottom of the fifth was the lone Willmar hit off the right-hander in the final three frames.
