OK, so the formatting got messed up when I tried to post this. I'll repost without the box score: The Thunder Cats opened the season against Dell Rapids in the opening game of the Pizza Ranch Tournament. Playing as the visitor at Legion Field in Valley Springs, BV scored a run in the top of the first and never looked back.

Brad Skorczewski led the offense with a single and a double, Alex Bute doubled, and Jacob Frantzen tripled to the right field fence with bases loaded in the fifth inning to ice the game for the Thunder Cats, who out hit Dells 8-1.

On the mound Carter Olthoff and Carter Haug combined to one-hit Dell Rapids, striking out 8 and not giving up a single walk.
