WILLMAR-After an hour and 45 minute rain delay, Rocori’s hitters came out swinging with six hits, plating three runners.
Garrit Kooistra settled in for Willmar after that until the fifth inning when Rocori scored three runs with two outs, including a two-run double from Sam Young.
Tyler Johnson and Jon Broman each had scoreless innings for the Cardinals but the offense couldn’t figure out Rocori’s Jake Brinker, who tossed six innings, striking out six.
The next schedule game for Willmar is next Tuesday when the Section 5AAA gets underway.
