Wingers, Cunningham advance
Red Wing left-hander Justin Cunningham started the year 6-3 with a 1.83 ERA, but in the final game of the regular season he and catcher Cole Kelly started to experiment with a different approach.
Cunningham embraced the new game plan in the Section 1AAA tournament opener Saturday and struck out a season-high seven batters in the fourth-seeded Wingers' 7-3 victory over No. 9 Northfield. He entered the game with 19 strikeouts on the season.
