FARGO, N.D. (GoWatertown.net) — Watertown Post 17 would claim a doubleheader slip of Fargo Davies on Saturday.

A big 11 run third inning by Fargo Davies in game one was just too much to overcome as Watertown would fall 15-5. The game would be called in the 5th inning due to the 10 run rule. Breadon Zaug and Jerod Cyrus would each have a two RBI afternoon. Easton Thury would pitch two and a third innings in a losing effort, throwing 82 pitches issuing three strikeouts and six walks. Kade Russell would pitch an inning and two thirds in relief.

Watertown would bounce back in game two 7-1. Zaug would drop down two hits and two RBI’s. Dawson Schmidt, Braxton Lacher, Kale Stevenson and Ben Althoff would each have one hit and one RBI. Jerod Cyrus would pitch five innings, throwing 83 pitches and issuing eight strikeouts and two walks. Andrew Zxech would pitch two innings, fanning two while allowing one run.

Next up for Watertown Post 17 (1-3) is their home opener Tuesday, May 4th against Aberdeen at 5 and 7 p.m. Brent Nathaniel will have coverage on The Talk of Watertown, 1480 KSDR, and GoWatertown.net/Post 17.
