Plato improves to 9-3

There was no need for nailbiting last week as the Plato Blue Jays bested a pair of Crow River Valley League (CRVL) competitors by a combined score of 32-0 to improve to 9-3 on the season.
The Blue Jays, who enter this week on a five-game winning streak, recorded their third shutout victory of the season in an 11-0 defeat of host Cologne on Tuesday, June 7. 
Topping that, Plato returned home for the first time since May 25 and blasted visiting New Germany 21-0 on Sunday, June 12. The Blue Jays have yet to give up a run in the month of June.
On the field, Plato wasted little time asserting its will on Cologne, putting up seven runs in the second inning, three more in the fifth and one final tally in the seventh en route to the abbreviated victory.
Matt Odegaard posted four RBI on a pair of home runs to pace the Blue Jays. Both he and Tony Beringer went 2-for-4 with two runs scored as part of Plato’s nine-hit attack, with Beringer notching two RBI. Chris Odegaard went 2-for-3 and crossed home plate twice in the win.
