Chargers Win Behind One Hitter from Merrit

By Craig Olson - Hancock, MN

A leadoff single in the top of the 5th by Marshall Riedel sparked a rally that allowed Brandon-Evansville to score two runs and take a 2-0 late in their game against Hancock on Thursday. The Chargers added an insurance run in the top of the 7th when Jake Hintermeister tripled to right field and came around to score when the relay was mishandled, giving B-E a 3-0 win. 

Brandon Merrit pitched a complete game shutout, only giving up a single to Peyton Rohloff in the bottom of the 6th. Merritt struck out three and didn’t walk or hit any batters. 

“I’m proud of how well Brandon threw today,” said Brandon-Evansville Head Coach Brian Perleberg. “He gave us the performance we needed on a day when our offense sputtered. He didn’t give any free passes, relied on his defense and pitched with confidence.” 

Marshall Riedel (2 for 4, Run), Jake Hintermeister (1 for 3, triple, Run) and Gaven Jacobson (1 for 4, RBI) were the offensive leaders for the Chargers.
