Dan Leavens hit a grand slam in a seven-run third inning Sunday and the host Millers went on to pound the Skeeters.
Hager City player/manager Cory Brathall said his team gave the Millers about seven outs in the third. The Skeeters finished with six errors.
“We kind of kicked the ball around,” Brathall said. “We didn’t look very sharp at all.”
Darren Georgakas allowed 11 runs (seven earned) over 2 1/3 innings and suffered the loss in his first outing of the year. He surrendered nine hits and walked three.
Hager City dropped to 0-2 overall and 0-1 in the St. Croix Valley League. It plays at Red Wing on Tuesday.
