College baseball: Warriors split doubleheader

Tribune photo by Brooke Kern Ridgewater’s Erich Prokosch hits a two-run home run to put the Warriors up 7-5 during the second game against St. Cloud Tech on Monday afternoon at Baker Field in Willmar.

WILLMAR — Brandon Bornhorst pitched a complete game and Erich Prokosch and Jake Comnick delivered key hits to help the Ridgewater baseball team win 7-5 in the second game of a MCAC doubleheader Monday at Taunton Stadium.

The Warriors dropped the first game 8-0.

The Warriors trailed 5-3 in the fifth inning of game two when Comnick ripped a pinch-hit double to drive in two runs and tie the game.

In the sixth, Prokosch hit a two-run homer for the game-winner.

Bornhorst allowed two earned runs, walked just one and struck out six.

The Warriors are 1-1 in the MCAC and 1-5 overall. The team has had to cancel 16 games — eight doubleheaders — because of poor spring weather and field conditions.

They play the St. John’s JV at 1 p.m. today at Taunton Stadium, then travel to Fergus Falls for a league doubleheader on Wednesday.
