KASSON — The Kasson Coyotes snapped a 3-3 tie by scoring six runs in the bottom of the fifth inning en route to a 10-3 victory over the Rochester Roadrunners on Monday night in Twin Rivers League amateur baseball.

The field in Kasson does not have lights, so the teams played a seven-inning game.

With the score tied 3-3 in the fifth, the Coyotes loaded the bases. Nick Thompson’s one-out single plated two runs and a misplay in the outfield allowed a third run to score. Thompson was 2-for-4 in the game with three RBIs. Catcher Nate Gasner was 2-for-3.


Broc Threinen pitched the first four innings and collected the win because it was a seven-inning game. He allowed one run on four hits and struck out three. Derrick Walker pitched the final three innings for a save.

Lowell Thomason was the starter for Rochester. He allowed three runs on five hits and struck out one over four innings. Matt Jensen took the loss in relief.

Josh Dascher was 2-for-4 for the Roadrunners, who were held to six hits.

Rochester is in St. Charles on Wednesday.
