Email
Warriors sweep The key: Brainerd collected 10 hits in each game as they beat Rocori 8-4 and 8-6 Conference: Brd 3-0, Roc 1-3 Overall: Brd 3-1, Roc 1-3 Next: Brainerd at Sartell 5 p.m. April 25 After suffering an 8-7 loss to Moorhead in a game they felt they should have won last week, the Brainerd Warriors were hoping to bounce back in a Central Lakes Conference doubleheader Tuesday against the Rocori Spartans at Adamson Field. The Warriors rebounded in style as they swept Class 3A’s 10th-ranked Spartans 8-4 and 8-6 on an overcast, 40-degree day that featured a downpour earlier in the day. “We hit the ball better tonight than we have,” Warriors coach Lowell Scearcy said, “and we got some clutch pitching and it turned out all right. Rocori is a very good team. We feel fortunate to have come out of this with two wins.” Video/ Steve Kohls
