YME surges past Montevideo, 8-7
MONTEVIDEO -- Yellow Medicine East rallied from a 7-0 deficit to stun Montevideo 8-7 Friday in a West Central South Conference baseball game.
Montevideo (6-7, 7-7) plated all of its runs from the second-fifth innings while Mitch Christensen was cruising on the mound.
Christensen had faced the minimum amount of batters (15) through five innings before YME (6-5, 7-6) broke through in the sixth. The Sting sent 11 batters to the plate to produce six runs -- all given up by Christensen -- on six hits, highlighted by Derek Dyrdahl's three-run homer that put the score at 7-5.
Dylan Hoffman then doubled with one out in the YME seventh before tying the score at 7-7 by coming home on Dylan Lindstrom's single. Lindstrom later scored the go-ahead run on Travis Enger's triple down the right-field line. Enger paced YME's 11-hit attack by going 3-for-4.
Tyler Sand induced three groundouts in Montevideo's seventh to seal the win for YME.
Brett Bergeson doubled in two runs in the fourth, Christensen knocked in a run with a third-inning double and Colton Vien (fifth) and Jerad Schmitt (fourth) added RBI singles for the Thunder Hawks.
