Broncos beat Wood Ducks, Hoglund steals home, and Cardinals walk-off PBR in Sunday’s Cornbelt games

The Madison Broncos won their 3rd Cornbelt game of the season on Sunday, with a 5-1 win on the road vs. the Humboldt-Hartford Wood Ducks. Tyler Tappe held the Wood Ducks in check on the mound. Tappe went 6 innings and struck out 13, while allowing just 1 run on 4 hits. And most importantly for a Madison team that has struggled to throw strikes, he walked just one batter. 

Jared Kennington powered the offense with three hits, including a two run homer in the 9th. Tappe, Trey Smith, and Peyton Wolf each had two hits for the Broncos. Aspen Dahl picked up the save, striking out 5 while pitching that final three innings. 

Madison improved to 3-6 in the Cornbelt Leauge Standings, while the Wood Ducks fell to 0-7.


Also Sunday, Canova’s Trey Krier scattered 7 hits and struck out 6, while shutting out the Colman A’s 10-0 over 8 innings. 

Riley Genzlinger went 3-for-5 with 3 runs scored. Jared Miller, Justin Miller, and Trey Krier all had 2 hits for the Gang. Canova is now 5-2, while the loss dropped Colman to 3-3 in the league. 


Zak Wallner delivered an RBI double in the bottom of the 9th, as the Flandreau Cardinals walked-off on Dell Rapids PBR 3-2 on Sunday. PBR entered the final frame with a 2-0 lead. Luke Gassman singled to start the inning, then moved to second base on a single from Bret Severtson. Both runnings moved up a base on a wild pitch, and Gassman than scored on a sacrifice fly. Jacoby Anderson followed with an RBI hit to tie the game. That was followed by a Rick Weber single before Wallner’s double ended the game. 

Gassman, Weber, and Keith Cutler each had 2 hits for Flandreau. Severtson picked up the win in relief. 


The power hitting Dell Rapids Mudcats managed just one run on Sunday, but that was all they needed in a 1-0 shutout of the Flandreau Blue Teal. Dalton Lehnen was dominant on the mound for the Mudcats, throwing a complete game shutout and striking out 17. 

Ty Hoglund scored the game’s only run, stealing home on a double steal with two out in the 7th. 

The Mudcats remain a perfect 8-0, while the Blue Teal are now 2-6.
