The Albert Lea VFW picked up their second win of the season on Wednesday as they beat Northfield 7-6.
The game was tied after the third inning 4-4. It stayed that way until Northfield scored two runs in the top of the fifth.
Albert Lea’s Christian Roche sent two players home in the bottom of the sixth to tie the game and Zach Bordewick scored the game winning run.
According to Albert Lea coach Corey Thomas, it was the first game his team has played without any errors.
“Our defense started the year out struggling and it has improved which is one of the reasons for the victory today,” Thomas said.
