Baseball: Borchardt, Thunder blank Foley 3-0

Alex Borchardt twirled a six-hit shutout as the Zimmerman Thunder downed the Foley Falcons 3-0 on Thursday, their first Granite Ridge Conference win.

The senior struck out four, walked one and faced only 27 batters as the Thunder defense made just one error and got a double play on a line drive.

Tony Obinger singled home one run, and the others scored on an error and a base-running play.

Zimmereman is 1-1 in the GRC and 3-3 overall, while Foley, which was ranked No. 12 in Class 2A, fell to 1-1 and 4-3.

The Thunder will host No. 3 ranked Little Falls on Friday, 5 p.m.
