Plato winning streak ends

It was an up-and-down weekend for the Plato Blue Jays, as the squad scored a big win followed by a disappointing loss in back-to-back games at Bluejay Stadium.
The quick roller coaster followed Plato’s 6-4 win over Hamburg at Norwood on Wednesday, July 5. It was the fifth win in a row for the Blue Jays, who rallied from a 4-2 deficit in the top of the fifth for the victory.
Starting pitcher Adam Prehn earned the win with seven innings of three-hit ball before Matt Odegaard came on for a two-inning save.
Prehn also knocked in two runs with Odegaard scoring twice on a 3-for-4 night at the plate. Mitch Boesche went 2-for-3 with two runs scored. 
There would be no need for a rally in Plato’s next game as the Blue Jays secured a regular-season sweep of Crow River Valley League South Division rival Carver by means of a 6-0 shutout on Saturday, July 8.
