Blue Jays thump Cologne

It was a light schedule to open the month of July for the Plato Blue Jays, but the squad made their one game last week count.
Plato remained hot heading into the July 4 holiday by pounding visiting Cologne 11-1 on Wednesday, July 1. The victory was the Blue Jays’ sixth in a row in Crow River Valley League (CRVL) play and the eighth in the team’s last nine league games.
Starting pitcher Adam Prehn dazzled the Hollanders by allowing just one hit and one unearned run in five innings of work, striking out three batters without issuing a single walk. 
Chris Odegaard tossed the final two innings of the abbreviated seven-inning contest, whiffing five Cologne batters while walking one.
