The high school volleyball season kicked off Tuesday. The Pine City Dragons hosted Zimmerman, but fall 3-0 in the opener. Ogilvie also starts the season with a loss, they fall to Kimball Area 3-2. East Central is a 3-0 winner over Proctor, North Branch loses 3-0 to Forest Lake. Onamia gets the best of Milaca 3-1.

The Twins can’t figure the Mariners out in Seattle, they fall for the second night, this time 3-2. Minnesota had a tough time advancing runners. The Twins come back from an early two run deficit, to tie the game at 2-2 on a Randy Ruiz solo shot. Ruiz’s homer was all for naught, when Jose Lopez drilled the game winning single in the bottom of the sixth that scored Adrian Beltre. Twins have now lost four out of five in Seattle this season. Minnesota looks to avoid a sweep this afternoon. They send Glenn Perkins to the mound. Hear the matinee on cool country 100.9 WCMP-FM beginning at 3:10.
