Big inning hurts SL in 6-3 baseball loss to SB-Luton


Sergeant Bluff-Luton scored four runs in the third inning to take control as the Warriors went on to defeat Storm Lake 6-3 in a nonconference game on Tuesday at Tornado Field.

Storm Lake took a 1-0 lead in the first inning before the Warriors made it 4-1 in the third. It was 5-1 after four innings. Storm Lake scored a run in the fifth and another in the seventh to make it closer.

Storm Lake (12-12) finished with eight hits in the game. Charlie Dvergsten led the way by going 4-for-4 with three singles and a double. Jake White added two hits while Carson Lullmann and Luke Richardson each had one hit.

Lullmann and White each drove in a run while Dvergsten scored three runs.

Brock Edwards got the loss. He allowed two hits and four runs, three of which were earned, walked two and struck out none in one inning. Dvergsten started and gave up one hit and no runs, walked none and struck out three in two innings. White and Allan White both pitched in relief.

“I thought we competed well with SBL, which is one of the top seeds in our district, but one bad inning where we gave them extra outs was a key difference,” Storm Lake coach Michael Knapp said. “SBL was very good defensively, which made it hard for us to get back in the game after falling in a hole early.”
