Baseball: Bombers advance with shutout of Stewartville
Taylor Carlson made quick work of Stewartville’s lineup, and the rest of Cannon Falls brutalized the Tigers’ pitching in a 10-0, five-inning victory in the first round of the Section 1AA-West playoffs.
Carlson gave up two hits and a walk in four innings on Thursday, striking out five batters in the process. Bryce Boyle-Hoban led the Bombers with a single, a double, two RBI and three runs scored in three at-bats. Peter Haggerty and Brock Peterson also doubled as Cannon Falls scored all 10 runs in the first three innings.
The Bombers (18-3), the No. 3 seed in the bracket, will face second-seeded Kasson-Mantorville at 12:30 p.m. Saturday in Cannon Falls.
