PERHAM — Starting pitcher Blake Stockert pitched a three-hit shutout and jacked a two-run insurance homer late in the game as No. 4 Alexandria advanced out of the first round of play at the Sub State 14 American Legion baseball tournament Thursday afternoon with a 5-0 victory over the No. 5 Thief River Falls Bandits.


“Our hitting was off today,” Stockert said. “That’s not like us. I guess I got my own insurance."
