VFW Baseball Roundup

BENSON — Bryce Broman had two hits at the plate and tossed a complete game on the mound to help spark Willmar I’s 5-1 win over Benson Tuesday in a VFW baseball game.

Broman singled twice, including one in the fourth that drove in a run and gave Willmar (7-3) a 3-0 lead. On the hill, the junior-to-be limited Benson to five hits and didn’t issue a walk while collecting two strikeouts.

Willmar took a quick 2-0 lead after Austin Smith doubled in a run and Josh Tinklenberg followed with a single that brought in Smith. Post 1639 then got insurance with Jacob Robinson’s sacrifice fly in the fifth and Zach Hormann’s fielder’s choice in the sixth.

Benson plated its lone run in the sixth when Connor Staton reached on a single and later came around to score on Brady Young’s one-out double.

Willmar is at Madison on Thursday for a make-up game before hosting Montevideo on Friday at Swansson Field.
