Mike Adelman, 43-year-old draftee from Clinton, threw a nohitter, the 20th in tournament history, to defeat Lamberton 2-0 in a game at Delano. Howard Lake nipped Clear Lake 3-2 on Friday night at Irish Stadium to advance to the next round, when they will face Green Isle in Maple Lake at 1:30 p.m. Saturday. Jordan Danielson, a draftee from the DC Saints, was the winning pitcher for the Orphans. Laker fans remember Danielson for helping Maple Lake win the championship in 2012. In the Class B tournament, St. Michael lost to Savage 2-1 and 10-2 to Austin to end their tournament run. Austin hit four home runs in the game. Brian Beuning, of Luverne, and Tony Kley, of Winsted, each turned in 17-strikeout games. For interesting insights into the tournament, from the state website check out CJ’s Blog (not CJ from the Star Tribune). His description of the crowd at the Maple Lake-Watkins game is worth reading. Friday night’s attendance— Maple Lake-1,003; Delano-554, for a total of 1,557. Attendance on Saturday at Maple Lake was 882, Delano attendance was 908 and Howard Lake (Class B) attendance was 454 for the day’s total of 2,244.

The Lakers celebrate their 9-2 win over the Watkins Clippers Saturday night. (Photo by Charlene Wurm) Mitch Wurm was impressive on the mound against the Clippers. In seven and one-third innings, he held Watkins to two runs on four hits and a walk with seven strikeouts. With one out in the eighth, Jeremy Schmidt replaced the tiring young right-hander and held the Clippers to one base runner, on an error, to finish the game. Laker batting was on track as well. With 11 hits and few free passes, the Lakers looked like the team that earned themselves the North Star League championship. The team had a three-run second inning when nine men came to the plate and a three-run sixth inning with eight batters appearing. As is true with many teams, the Lakers thrive on getting the lead in a game. In the first inning, Graham Brown led off with a looper over the Watkins second baseman and stole second. Chad Raiche reached first base on an error, sending Brown to third. He then scored on Dusty Decker’s infield ground-out. In the second inning, with the score 1-0, Brian Redemske walked and Luke Fobbe singled to right field. Brown lined to right field to drive in Redemske. Tim Queck reached base on a bunt hit. As Brown and Queck went into motion for a double steal attempt, the Watkins catcher overthrew third and Brown scored. Raiche drove in Fobbe with a sacrifice fly to left field. In the sixth inning, with the score 5-2, eight batters came to the plate and accounted for three more runs. Decker drove in Brown for one run, but the big blow was Wurm’s two-run base hit to right field with bases loaded. Playing third base, Brown’s bat was on fire. The speedster was 4-4 with four runs scored and two RBI to lead Laker hitting. He led off the fourth inning with a rare triple and scored when Raiche grounded out for an RBI. Raiche, Dusty Decker and Wurm each had two RBI. Fobbe had three hits for the night. The Lakers scored their first four runs off starter Matt Geislinger and continued the carnage

Graham Brown slides home to score one of his four runs on four hits, as he led the Lakers in both categories.
