AM-1490/96.7-FM KRIB, kribam.com — Clear Lake softball at Mason City High — 7:30

AM-1300 KGLO — Minnesota Twins at Seattle — pre-game 8:30, first pitch 9:10


SEATTLE (AP) — Jake Bauers barely cleared the wall in right-center field with his first home run since being traded to Seattle and lifted the Mariners to a 4-3 win over the Minnesota Twins. Bauers’ third homer of the season came with one out in the eighth inning off Hansel Robles. Bauers lined a 1-0 pitch just beyond the reach of Nick Gordon’s leaping attempt at the fence. Bauers was traded from Cleveland to Seattle last week after he was designated for assignment by the Indians earlier this month. Seattle trailed 3-1, but scored twice in the fifth and the Mariners bullpen shut down the Twins long enough for Bauers to come through with the big hit.


MASON CITY — Newman used a three-run first as the Knights beat Osage 6-2 in Top of Iowa Conference baseball last night at home. Eli Brinkley went five innings and struck out six in picking up the win. Newman is now 15-1 overall and 9-0 in the conference and will travel to Alburnett tonight.


CLEAR LAKE — Clear Lake used two runs in the fourth and three more in the sixth to beat Algona 5-3 last night in North Central Conference baseball, as you heard on AM-1490/96.7-FM KRIB and kribam.com.

Carson Toebe was 2-for-3 with a run batted in while Andrew Formanek had what turned out to be the game-winning two-run single in the sixth. Clear Lake is now 6-4 overall and 3-2 in the conference and will host #6/2A Dike-New Hartford tonight at Lions Field.


MASON CITY — Mason City High swept Fort Dodge in CIML Iowa Conference baseball last night at Roosevelt Field, 15-6 in the opener and 11-5 in the nightcap.
