Nate Rodriguez pitched seven District innings for 15 strikeouts and batted 3-of-3 Thursday as Valley City Babe Ruth took 6-2 revenge on Napoleon for June 17â€™s road loss.
â€śIt was a good win for us, especially to make up for that loss out in Napoleon,â€ť Babe Ruth head coach Lance Lukes said. â€śWe struck out too many times at the plate and left a few to many guys on base, but came through with some clutch hits and picked up a good win.â€ť
Napoleon dynamite pitching held Valley City hitless in the three-inning, 4-0 non-District finisher.
