A five-run 3rd inning propelled the East Sac County baseball team to a 7-4 win at Manson Northwest Webster on Wednesday. 

1st inning RBI's by Austin Jaeschke and Dawson Marine put Manson up 2-0.  The Raiders took the lead for good in the 3rd as they batted around.  East Sac got on the board after an error was committed, and soon after that, Bradyn Burns delivered a two-out RBI single to tie the game.  Luke Wright then hit a three-RBI triple to put East Sac up 5-2. 

The Cougars countered with two runs in the bottom of the 3rd, but East Sac added a run in the 4th, and another in the 7th on an RBI single by Burns. 

Karter Ludwig picked up the win with 2 2/3 innings pitched in relief.  Logan Schroeder finished up by throwing 2 1/3 scoreless innings.  Dillon Manthei threw a complete game for the Cougars, with eight strikeouts. 

East Sac is now 2-9 on the season.  They'll host West Bend Mallard on Friday. 

Manson Northwest Webster is now 8-9.  They visit Eagle Grove today (Thur).
