WELLS — The United South Central Rebels baseball team ended its three-game skid Monday with a 5-0 win over the St. Clair Cyclones at Thompson Park in Wells.

Rebels coach Pat Frank called it a well played game as each pitcher struck out 12 batters and the team’s combined for only one error.

The Rebels (2-3, 0-2 Gopher) had a more efficient offense than the Cyclones (0-3, 0-1 Valley), scoring five runs on five hits. Rebels starting pitcher Anthony Stenzel allowed two hits and walked only the game’s first batter. Dustin Dylla walked four times for the Rebels.

“As a team, we were finally consistent and put together a good ball game,” Frank said. “Consistency was our big problem and they’re fundamentally improving each day. Stenzel threw strikes and the defense played well behind him.

Catcher Tyson Morton went 1-for-2 with a double and two RBIs for the Rebels, and Eric Lackey was 1-for-4 with a double and an RBI. Colby Yost went 1-for-2 with an RBI.

The Rebels play again at 5 p.m. today against Janesville-Waldorf-Pemberton (1-1, 1-1 Gopher) at Thompson Park in Wells.
