Stratton forces deciding game
It was a big-game performance on both the mound and at the plate by Guy Arpin.
Arpin earned the win—and also belted a grand slam—as the Stratton Eagles came away with a dramatic 8-7 win over the Big Grassy Braves in the Rainy River District Fastball League final Tuesday night.
Jeff Kreger also homered for Stratton in the victory.
Travis Tom, who led the league during the regular season with a 14-2 record, was saddled with the loss.
Tuesday’s loss was the first for the Braves in the double-knockout playoffs, and their first setback of any kind since a 5-3 loss to the Barwick Blue Knights back on July 12.
