ST. CLOUD, MN – The Willmar Stingers fell to the St. Cloud Rox tonight, 10-0.

Brett Bateman sent a ball to center field to start off the game and then stole a base. He was named the MinnWest Technology Campus Player of the Game.
The second hit would come on the second to last batter of the game when Zac Corbin beat out a thrown on an infield single.
The Rox scored in every inning except two. They started off scoring five in the first two innings and were able to double their lead by the ninth inning. They were able to hit five extra-base hits including a John Nett home run in the seventh.
The win would go to St. Cloud’s Joseph Brandon and the loss would be given to Willmar’s Smith Pinson.
