Monte Fredrickson led offensively going 2-for-2 with a stolen base.
“Despite the scores, the team did a great job,” Riverdogs manager Dave Hjelm said. “One inning in each game is where the opposing teams scored their runs.”
The Riverdogs will be in action at home against the K-town Outlaws at 7:30 p.m. Saturday. “We are having a Fergus Falls local, Steven Hagstrom, throwing out the first pitch. We are hoping to see a lot of Fergus faces in the crowd to be there to support Steven and the team. We will also have some giveaways at the game,” Hjelm added.
