KMS Saints

(Jordan, MN) -- The KMS Fighting Saints used an eight-run third inning to race past Randolph for a 10-0 victory in five innings in the second quarterfinal at the Mini Met in Jordan.

The Saints (21-2) rapped out seven hits in the decisive third inning during a spree that also included two errors by the Rockets (21-3). Sophomore outfielder Isaac Call triggered the outburst with an RBI single and many more followed until the spree ended with senior shortstop Weston Gjerde sacrifice fly. The Saints tacked on two more runs in the bottom of the fourth inning behind RBI singles from freshman pitcher Alex Call and senior second baseman Cade Melin. Call was 3 for 3 with three RBIs and a run scored. On the mound, he gave up three hits and struck out five.

The Class A State semifinal game this Friday at noon at the Mini Met in Jordan will feature two area teams with KMS against the BOLD Warriors.
