The Glencoe Brewers improved to 2-0 on the young season by prevailing 4-3 on the road against the New Ulm Brewers on Saturday, April 29.

Starting pitcher Derek Bratsch earned the win with three innings of spotless work that included four strikeouts. Tanner Grack claimed the save by tossing the final three frames, allowing one earned run on one hit and three walks while striking out five.
