Riverdogs remain in playoff hunt

Two games are left in the Howards Grove Riverdogs’ season, all they there could be more.

Howards Grove is tied for third place in the East Shore Baseball League with a 9-5 record, and the team hosts Mount Calvary – also in the playoff chase – at 1 p.m. on Sunday.

Depending on other outcomes, a playoff berth could be on the line.

“It might mean we clinch a spot, it might mean that we get as high as third, if we lose we’re not officially out but our chances will depend on what other teams do the rest of the way,” said Riverdogs’ player manager Mark Holzman.

Howards Grove improved its chances with a 9-7 win at St. Cloud last Sunday.

The Riverdogs scored the first four runs of the game and took a 9-5 lead on Holzman’s two-run home run in the ninth.

St. Cloud scored twice in the bottom of the frame and twice had the tying run at the plate, but relief pitcher Cole Reinemann got out of the jam.

He replaced starter Brad Olson, who lasted 6 2/3 innings.

Holzman finished with four hits and three runs batted in, Andrew Reinemann drove in two runs on two hits and Zach Fritz contributed two hits, two runs and one RBI.
