    After a quiet performance Wednesday afternoon in Langdon, the Nelson County bats had something to prove in loser-out play of the State Class B Legion Baseball Tournament. On Thusday, the Owls exploded for 12 runs and 14 hits to earn a dominant 12-2 win over Renville County.
    Nelson County didn’t have one particular standout inning. Instead the representatives from the Central Region scored two runs in the first, three in the third, three in the fifth and four in the sixth to pick up a 12-2 triumph. Offensively, Dakota Hoyt was a standout. The first baseman cranked three base hits and a RBI. Hunter Engel and Riley Nelson each added two hits apiece in the winning effort.
    On the mound, Nelson County hurler Nelson was tough. He gave up just four hits on the way to earning victory.
    The Owls now prepare to face Enderlin at 4 p.m. Friday in loser-out play.
