Zach Rote scattered four hits for the complete-game win and added a key RBI single to aid the offense in Blanchard’s 5-2 win over Clarence on Thursday.
After the Mounties had taken a 2-0 lead in the top of the third, the Bees put two runners on before an error brought in one run. A Rote single tied the game and a Chad Todd RBI double put Blanchard in the lead for good.
Brett Heggensteller and Mike Vonada each had two singles for the Bees, while Rote struck out three.
Brad Kling singled and doubled and Ryan MacNamara took the loss for the Mounties.
