The Montevideo Spartans played one of their best games of the season, but the Benson Chiefs edged the Spartans 4-3 Sunday at Benson.
The Spartans got solid pitching from starter Christian Brabender, who gave up three earned runs over the first six innings, and from Chuck Vien, who pitched two scoreless innings in relief.
Mitch Christensen led the Spartans at the plate, going 2-for-4 with two RBI. Todd Bergeson, Joe Schlagel, Christian Brabender, Tyelr Kuno, Spencer Jorgenson and Josh Anderson also had hits.
The Spartans fell 14-1 to a strong Rosen team here on Saturday.
Jamey Thompson’s double scored Brabender, who had singled, for Montevideo’s only run in the second inning. Kyle TeBeest had Montevideo’s only other hit.
The Spartans will host Appleton Friday and Benson Saturday.
