The Fergus Falls Hurricanes were 8-0 winners over the Urbank Bombers on Saturday in the Region 16C Amateur Baseball Tournament.  Mitch Porter (7IP, 8K, 3BB, 2H, 0R) was the winning pitcher and Eric Salveson pitched a scoreless two innings of relief.

The Canes scored five runs in the second inning.  Mitch Porter led off with a single and Jack Hiedeman reached on a bunt single.  After a pop out and a strike out, Thomas Bosek walked to load the bases.  A Sean McGuire double cleared the bases.  After a walk to Alex Hensch, Tosten Mann delivered a two-run double.

Fergus Falls added a single run in the third and then finished the scoring with two runs in the eighth on a double by Bosek, a triple by Hensch and a single by Mann.

Hitting leaders were Mann (3-4. 2B, 3RBI), Hiedeman (2-4, 2R) and McGuire (1-5, 2B, R, 3RBI).
