Braves win battle of the unbeatens

Somebody had to blink.
The last two undefeated teams in the Rainy River District Fastball League squared off last night at VanJura here, with the two-time defending champion Big Grassy Braves dumping the host Sight & Sound Wolves 14-6.

With the win, the Braves (9-0) took over sole possession of first place.
Jeff Morrison not only kept the Wolves in check with a solid pitching outing, but crushed two homers to aid his cause.
Jesse Tom and Linden Indian also belted round-trippers.
Matt Sweigard homered for the Wolves (7-1), with Marcel Pagee taking the loss.
In other games last night, the Dawson Tigers routed the visiting Sabaskong Lakers 33-9, the Big Island Huskies beat the host Sabaskong Cubs 11-5, and the Barwick Blue Knights took down the visiting Manitou Thunderbirds 13-6.
The game between the host Couchiching Raiders and Northwest Bay Chieftains was postponed, as was the one between Beef’s Warriors and the Eagles in Stratton.
