A Cory Hedeen-single helped the Cannon Falls Bears escape with a 6-5 win over the visiting Zumbrota Tigers Friday night.
Five errors helped Zumbrota stay in the game, and contributed to their 4-run 3rd inning.
Starter Billy Coakley went three innings, and was charged with five runs; only one of those was earned. He struck out one. Keith Meyers got the win with six shutout innings of relief, striking out a dozen.
Hedeen had two hits, as did Brandon Voth. Nate Otto and Chris Nobach each had one hit, and Otto had two RBI.
Cannon lost a 12-inning contest to the Hastings Hawks on Sunday, 2-1.
Hedeen started and went eight innings, giving up one earned run while striking out five. Jared Woodward was saddled with the loss, surrendering one earned run in four innings.
Hits were tough to come by against Hastings starter Deryk Marks. The bottom three hitters in the Bears' batting order, Luke Winchell, Ryan Brintnall and Jamey Stay, each had one hit. The only Bears run was unearned.
The Bears are now 3-1 overall, and 1-1 in the CCVL. They are at Elko on Friday, then host St. Louis Park on Sunday (2 p.m.) and the Eagan Bandits at 7:30 p.m. on Wednesday, May 21.
