ROGERS – The Bemidji High School baseball team dropped a 2-0 decision on the road at Rogers on Friday, failing to push any runs across against the Royals’ pitching staff.

The Lumberjacks (10-7) conceded both runs in the fifth inning on a costly overthrow of first base by pitcher Ty Lundeen. The error, committed after Lundeen fielded a ground ball with one out, enabled Riley Martin and Jack Olsen to score from first and second on the play.

BHS sent the tying run to the plate in the seventh after Parker Mistic singled with one out, but neither Ethan Biehn nor Hunter Brodina made any noise with Mistic on base.

Lundeen acquitted himself well on the mound otherwise, pitching the full six innings and allowing just the two runs – neither of which were earned – on six hits. The Jacks struggled to solve Rogers (14-4) starter Nathan Garding, who went six scoreless innings and allowed just four hits.

Bemidji’s best opportunity to score came in the sixth inning, when Peyton Neadeau stepped to the plate with runners on second and third and two outs. But Garding induced a groundout to end the threat and finish his line.
