Adam Hallberg and Thomas Miller pitched back-to-back shutouts as the Little Falls VFW baseball team swept visiting St. Cloud West (Tech) 7-0, 6-0 in Thursday’s sub-district playoffs.
In the opening game of the best-of-three series, Little Falls struck first in the third inning as Jeremy Klein singled, stole second and scored on a base hit by Ben Witt.
Miller followed with a two-run triple in the fourth before Little Falls sealed the game with four runs in the fifth.
Hallberg finished with a four-hitter on the mound and collected three hits at the plate.
The second game was a similar story, as Little Falls provided an early cushion for Miller with a three-run first.
Miller and Witt each had two hits, with Miller tossing a five-hitter.
Little Falls will now move on to the district tournament Tuesday – Thursday in Brainerd.
