by Larry Lewsaw

Back-to-back RBI doubles by John Andreassen of the Camrose Roadrunners and Adam Johnson of the Armena Axemen ignited a four run rally in the sixth inning, which propelled the Powerline All-Stars to a 9-5 victory over the Battle River All-Stars Tuesday night in Camrose.

The win was the fourth in a row for the Powerline squad in the annual event.

The game was evenly played, with both teams recording 10 hits and committing three errors. Ben Kinzer of Killam pitched a strong opening four innings for the Battle River team, which held a 5-3 lead going into the sixth.

Scott Peterson of Armena slammed the door on the visitors over the last three innings, allowing only one hit. The series is now 4-2 in favour of the PBL.
