BEMIDJI - Ryan Sander tossed a three-hitter and added a pair of RBI on two hits to power the Bemidji Blue Ox to a 7-0 home victory Wednesday over Cass Lake.
Sander fanned seven and walked only one during his nine innings of work. He also drove in the only run he would need in the first inning when he doubled home Bryan Jamieson who had singled and advanced to second on a passed ball.
The Blue Ox scored two more in the second on a walk to Duane Biehn, singles by Joel Conway and Nolan Coyle and Sander's sacrifice fly
An error and Jamieson's single combined for a run in the fourth and Conway's RBI single and Coyle's RBI double highlighted a three-run fifth.
Matt Baier, Jamieson, Conway and Coyle also had two hits for the 6-0 Blue Ox.
