Panthers win-streak reaches seven

Awaiting their season’s fate, the Princeton Panthers collected their seventh-consecutive win, Saturday.
The Panthers went to Nowthen and grabbed a 7-2 victory, keeping their one-game lead over North Branch while they await the Minnesota Baseball Association’s July 15 ruling about possible forfeiture of the season due to a player’s ineligibility.
Tanner Kinney was the engine behind the win. He posted 11 strikeouts during a complete game, only getting touched up in the ninth-inning when the game was well in-hand.
The Panthers offense initially struggled as well, going scoreless through four, but they came alive in the fifth with two hits and three walks, pushing across three runs.
That dent opened wider in the sixth as they grabbed four more runs in the sixth, allowing Kinney to coast, finishing with two runs, one earned, on five hits and three walks.
Sam Larson went 3-for-4 with a double.
The Panthers game against the Rum River Bandits was cancelled due to rain on Sunday. Instead, they travel to Hinckley to oppose Pine City on Sunday, July 16 at 5 p.m.
