Baseball: Eagles survive early playoff scare
NEW YORK MILLS -- In the playoffs, one hot pitcher can spell doom, even in a mismatch. On paper, undefeated NY Mills should have rolled over Hillcrest Lutheran Academy (4-11).
Hillcrest senior pitcher Zachary Nersten held the Eagles to only two runs, but Eagles sophomores Tyler Patron and Brandon Kupfer controlled the Comet lineup. The duo combined to pitch a four-hit shutout.
Patron fanned 13 Comets, allowing four hits. Kupfer picked up the save.
