The Bemidji State Beavers scored 20 runs against in-state rival Minnesota State on Saturday night, and they still got mercy-ruled in the eighth inning. That’s because Minnesota State scored an insane 41 runs of their own in what was surely a head-turning contest.
The box score from this game is bananas. Minnesota State put up the 41 runs on just 35 hits, aided by six Bemidji errors. The Mavericks scored 24 runs combined in the third and eighth innings alone. Five of their players had four or more RBIs and eight had at least three hits.
Bemidji State managed to keep it somewhat close for a part of the game. The Beavers had 21 hits, and two seven-run innings. They trailed 22-18 after six, but then Minnesota State pulled away for good.
Meanwhile, the Minnesota Twins have scored 11 runs in five games this season.
