(CHEROKEE) -- Cherokee's Mason Kruger was thrown out attempting to steal home plate in the bottom of the seventh inning Friday night, halting a seventh inning rally by the last place Braves and preserving a wild 11-10 win by the Lakes Conference leading Le Mars Bulldogs in Cherokee.  Le Mars took a 7-1 lead in the top of the third inning and seemingly were on the way to an easy win.  Cherokee took advantage of nine walks, a hit-batsman and four errors in the final three innings to score eight runs.  Fortunately, Le Mars plated four runs in the sixth for an 11-5 lead before the Braves scored a run in the bottom of the sixth and four more in the seventh.   Kruger's caught stealing ended a bases-loaded threat in the seventh.  Hunter Rowe earned a save while Dayton Rand picked up the win.  Le Mars used four pitchers in the game.  Le Mars had 17 hits for the second straight game but stranded 15 base runners.  Matt Ellefson had four hits and two RBI's to lead the Bulldogs with Dayton Rand and Mitch Timp collecting three hits each.  The Bulldogs improve to 19-and-3 with the win and 10-and-1 in the Lakes Conference.

(LE MARS) -- Gehlen Catholic was within an out of winning a ten-run rule verdict over South O'Brien Friday night in War Eagle Conference baseball action at the Riverview Complex before the Wolverines rallied with seven runs in the final three innings to make it interesting.  The Jays held off the rally to win their third straight, 10-7.  Gehlen scored seven runs in the fourth inning to take a 10-0 lead before South O'Brien scored five runs after two were out in the fifth and added a two-run homer in the seventh to close to within three.  Michael Whitehead made his second start of the season and threw a five-hitter with ten strike outs.  Blake Wiltgen led the offense with three hits and two RBI's.  Gehlen is now 9-and-11 for the season and 7-and-9 in the W-E-C.
