Grand Forks beats Jamestown 12-9 in game ending after midnight

By Jamestown Sun Staff

Brady Regimbal found redemption with his bat.

The Grand Forks hitter drilled a three-run home run off Jamestown starter Brian Wenzel in the bottom of the fifth inning and Grand Forks followed with a four-run sixth en route to a 12-9 win at the Class AA state Legion tournament late Wednesday night at Jack Brown Stadium. The game lasted more than three hours, ending at 12:24 this morning.

Regimbal's work started from the mound, as he allowed just two hits and struck out 10.

However, six walks sent him packing in the fifth inning with his team trailing by one, and he resorted to his bat to make up for any shortcomings on the mound. The home run gave Grand Forks a 7-6 advantage.

Jamestown scored two unearned runs in the second, but Grand Forks came back with four in the second. Post 14 came back to take the lead thanks to a two-run double from Nick Fuchs in the top of the fifth, before Grand Forks answered in the bottom half.

Logan Montgomery, Cole Kirchoffner and Colin Hennessy had hits in the sixth inning off Jamestown starter Brian Wenzel before Regimbal took back the lead.

Jamestown threatened in the top of the ninth, as it scored a run and had the bases loaded with one out. The tying runner was on first base, when Richardson struck out the final two batters to preserve the win.
