Lightning, Royals win make-up games

Staff

The two Rainy River District Fastball League make-up games on tap last night both were presented by the number 10.
That was the margin of victory for both the Big Grassy Lightning and the Rainy River Royals as the end of the regular season inches closer.
The Lightning (11-5) bounced the host Stratton Eagles 18-8 on the power of blasts from Chris Jack, winning pitcher Jeff Morrison, and Ryan Jack.
Tom Armstrong replied with a dinger for the Eagles (7-9) in support of losing pitcher Shelby Nosan.
The Royals, meanwhile, blanked Manitou 10-0, with Murray Armstrong pitching the shutout for Rainy River (9-5).
Elvis Debungee was tagged with the loss for Manitou (2-15).
Regularly-scheduled action resumes tonight with the Sight & Sound Wolves visiting Big Island.
The Lightning take their show to Northwest Bay, second-place Sabaskong entertains league-leading Barwick, the Big Grassy Braves host Rainy River, and Stratton welcomes Manitou.
