The Willmar Stingers racked up 17 hits in just eight trips to the plate, powering them to a 15-9 win over the Duluth Huskies in a Northwoods League slugfest on Saturday night.

The hosts scored five times in both the fourth and fifth innings. Drey Dirksen's two-run homer was the biggest blow of the fourth inning, but in the fifth, Willmar opened with four singles and a sacrifice fly and didn't have an extra-base hit until a two-out, two-run double by William Hamiter.

Six Stingers had at least two hits apiece, with Dirksen homering twice and driving in four runs on a 4-for-4 night. Jakob Newton had three hits for Willmar (11-10).

Duluth had an effective night offensively as well. Four Huskies had at least two hits, led by Ambren Voitik's 3-for-4 with a double.

Cameron Pool took the loss, allowing six runs on six hits in four-plus innings.


Duluth (10-11) completes its four-game series at Willmar today at 5:05 p.m.
