Willmar’s Starter Louie Varland is Tonight’s Pitcher of the Night

Louise Varland (Concordia-St. Paul) earned Pitcher of the Night after throwing six in their win over Duluth.

Varland retired five in a row until the sixth, gave up an unearned run, but managed to strike out the side. He ended the night with just two earned on five hits and two walks while striking out six.
