The Sevastopl baseball team outhit the visiting NEW Lutheran Blazers 11-3 en route to a 7-2 win Thursday in their WIAA Tournament opener.
The Pioneers took control of the game from the first inning, plating three runs in the frame thanks to RBI hits by Cal Ellefson and Tommy Junion. The team would go on to tack on two runs in the third inning and one more in the second. Ellefson, Jack de Young, and Junion all had multiple hits the game, led by Ellefson's 3-for-3 day.
De Young did not need much help as he limited the Blazers to just two runs on two hits while striking out three. Frankie Ash closed things out in the seventh.
The Pioneers will head north to play county and conference rival Gibraltar on Tuesday.
