In the game-one win over the Reds, the North Stars were narrowly clinging onto a 1-0 lead heading into the seventh inning. Havre scored one run in the fifth, but didn’t really get things going until the top of the final frame. They totaled eight hits on the game and didn’t feel comfortable in their lead until scoring four runs in the seventh, and stretching the slim 1-0 lead into a 5-0 win.
