Milkmen Rally to Down Dogs, 8-7

Wes Darvill had two hits and drove in two to lead the Winnipeg offense. Logan Hill also had two hits and scored two runs. Correlle Prime had two of the five hits the RedHawks recorded.
Culbreth, Canaries Blank Saints, 3-0
Ty Culbreth allowed three hits over six innings of work, combining with three relievers as the Sioux Falls Canaries blanked the St. Paul Saints, 3-0. The Canaries starter allowed single hits in the first, third, and sixth, and was only in any sort of trouble in the third when he gave up a two-out single followed by a walk, but induced a fielder’s choice to end the threat. Culbreth walked one and struck out two.
