BASEBALL: Lunkers get by Stingers in extra innings


The Brainerd Lakes Area Lunkers put a little bright spot into what has been a fairly dreary second half of the season with a 7-6 win over the Willmar Stingers before 564 fans at Mills Field on Tuesday night.

Vince Bruno’S base hit over second baseman Garrett Borba scored Wade Wass with the winning run, and lifted the Lunkers to just their second victory in their last six games.
