EV-W’s Logan Linn hurls perfect game vs. KMS

Eagles’ sophomore Logan Linn faced the minimum fifteen hitters, allowing no hits and striking out nine in EV-W’s 10-0 five-inning affair vs. Kerkhoven-Murdock-Sunburg, Friday, May 2. The Eagles provided plenty of support for Linn, pounding out nine hits and padding the scoreboard in three of the five innings played. Austin Schlangen went 2 for 3 with three RBI and Matt Unterberger went 1 for 3 with two RBI. Eden Valley-Watkins portrayed the quintessential team effort for the hometown faithful, picking up the impressive non-conference win and bidding a fond farewell to The Fighting Saints. Coach Mike Tomsche is overjoyed to pick up the win. “Logan Linn threw a gem and we played solid defense in support. We are happy we put together a good complete game. We are hoping to learn from this game and take away the importance of good pitching and defense.”
