(ABC 6 News) — The Rochester Honkers had a tough task in their first game after the NWL All-Star Break.

Thursday, the Willmar Stingers came to Rochester riding an 8-game winning streak and got ahead to a 4-2 score. But sure enough, the Honkers came back, Carson Stevens flying out an RBI to left center field to close the gap to 4-3 in the sixth inning.

Nate Chester in the sixth inning tied it by scrambling home off Tyler White’s RBI single, the score now 5-5. However, that gridlock would last all the way to the 12th inning when Dario Gomez lined a 1-2 count that barely stayed fair in right field. The winning RBI snapped the Stingers’ streak and gave Rochester a dramatic victory.

Both teams play again at Mayo Field on Friday at 6:35 PM.
