In game two of the Border Battle the Mandan Chiefs faced off against the Aberdeen Smitty’s. The Smitty’s got ahead early with a 3-0 lead in the second inning. Mandan’s Cole Schmidt would be the hero though, hitting a walk off grand slam to give the Chiefs a 5-3 win.

In Minot, the Minot Metros and Mandan A’s faced off in a double header at Corbett Field. The Metros trailed by one in the bottom of the seventh inning, but Hunter Ruzicka hits the homerun to give the Metros a 4-3 win.

In the second game of the double header, Mandan scores two runs early off of a wild pitch. Later in the second inning, Karsyn Jablonski gets an RBI to extend the A’s lead. The A’s would go on to win 14-4.
