Alexandria, MN  Sean Sturtzman did what few pitchers have done in the second half of the season, he shut down the Waterloo Bucks' potent offense and was the main reason the Alexandria Blue Anchors picked up a 3-1 victory at Knute Nelson Memorial Field on Friday. He lasted six innings, yielding zero runs, scattering seven hits, walking one and only once allowing a base runner passed second base.

Offensively, solo homers from Ben Allen, Aiden Hook and Dalton Leuschke gave Alexandria all the offense they needed.

Bucks' starting pitcher Cody Sedlock was solid in the loss, going six innings allowing just one run while striking out eight. However, he received no run support as the Bucks' offense struggled to generate momentum for the first time in weeks.

Alexandria grabbed a 1-0 lead on Hook's solo homer over the short fence in center field in the third inning. It remained 1-0 until Allen's solo shot to short center in the seventh. Leuschke made it 3-0 with his own fly ball homer to the short fence in center in the eighth inning.

Waterloo had a chance in the ninth inning, loading the bases with two outs. An infield single from Kevin Kaczmarski brought in a run and cut the deficit to 3-1 but the Bucks would strand the bases loaded.

Kaczmarski's hit was the Bucks' lone one with runners in scoring position despite 10 for the entire game.
