THE LEAD

VERONA, Wis. -- The Sabercats competed with the Edgewood College Eagles at Stampfl Field, and MBU could have won the second game with one swing of the bat.

  • Venue: Stampfl Field

THE STORY

The Eagles put on a defensive exhibition in the first game of the day, as Branden Cohn pitched a six-hit shutout to lead Edgewood to a 5-0 win.

Dillon Smith hit three singles and went 3-for-3 to lead the Sabercats, and Ryan HempelNate Croswell, and Shane Paruch all hit their way to first base as well. The difference came in the third and fourth innings in game one, as the Eagles compiled five runs in that stretch off of seven hits - two of them triples.
