Still’s 11 K’s, Hagerman’s clutch play leads OV past A&M

Bases loaded, no outs, and Okaw Valley in the field. The season’s opening game was in danger of being blown wide open from 2-1, with Central A&M leading Okaw Valley in the top of the sixth inning. The Raiders had scored their two runs in the second off two errors and Devon Still’s only walk of the day, but senior Colton Sroka answered big with a solo homer in the bottom of the fourth to cut the lead in half, but that all was a distant memory.

“We hadn’t had a hit to that point,” Timberwolves head coach Andrew Hagerman said. “It was a nice way to get off the snide, and he roped it. The team needed it, and it definitely gave us some momentum. Being down 2-0 that late in the game it feels like you’re down more, but with that and Devon’s great pitching we were right back in it.”     Login or Subscribe to read the rest of this story.
