Sartell Muskies shut out the Clear Lake Lakers 6-0
David Deminsky had his arm humming as he threw a three-hit shutout on June 10 against the Clear Lake Lakers. Deminsky struck out 21 batters. It was a good thing Deminsky was as masterful as he was because after scoring the first run in the first inning off a two-out single by Jake Sweeter, the Muskie bats went silent and the score stood at 1-0 for the next six innings.
In the seventh inning Ethan Carlson managed a single to left field scoring Braeden Dykhuizen and Sweeter knocked in two more runs. In the ninth the Muskies were able to score two more runs giving them their 6-0 victory.
