by Mike Dalton
In their only game last week, the RHS baseball team beat Medford 4-3.
Cody Pirkl had an outstanding game, blasting a 3-run home run and earning a save with a hitless relief stint. He struck five in three innings. Nate Overby picked up his first win of the season. David Speight scored the winning run.
"We play very good in the field, only committing one error," coach Chris Stanton said. "Both of our pitchers did a nice job of throwing strikes. We're happy with the start of our season, but there are some little things we could be doing better. Our entire roster has contributed to our success so far."
The Rockets were at NRHEG on Tuesday. They are at Faribault BA on Thursday, host Wabasha-Kellogg Monday, and are at home against Blooming Prairie on Tuesday, April 29.
