Bruins split pair of CRVL matchups

The Brownton Bruins split a pair of matchups in Crow River Valley League play last week, falling 6-0 to visiting Plato on Friday, July 15, before winning 7-3 at Young America two days later.

Brownton managed just five hits against the visiting Blue Jays, who clinched both the CRVL title and top seed in Region 7C with the win. Individual statistics were not made available.

However, the Bruins bounced back to put away the host Cardinals on Sunday, July 17, with Nick Heller blasting a grand slam to break a 3-3 deadlock in the top of the 10th inning.

Taylor Schuette had Brownton’s lone two-hit day in the victory, going 2-for-4 with one RBI and one run scored.

Brownton held a 3-0 lead after the second inning before Young America scored twice in the sixth and tied the game on a solo home run in the bottom of the ninth.
