(ABC 6 News) — There’s never a break when it comes to certain rivalries. The high school sports season may not be in session in Minnesota right now, but the Mayo Spartans renewed their rivalry on the diamond with Big 8 foe, Albert Lea.

This time it was in Legion baseball, where the Spartans go by the name of the Rochester Redhawks. In Thursday’s game, the Redhawks led 3-2 in the top of the fourth inning when Kyle Prindle showed why he was conference player of the year. He picked off a runner attempting to steal second after a strikeout.

In the bottom of the inning, the Redhawks added to their lead on an RBI single from pitcher Ian Regal. Albert Lea would take the lead in the top of the fifth, scoring three runs but it was short-lived. The Redhawks poured in several runs in the late innings as they beat Albert Lea 12-7.
