HANCOCK - The Library overcame an early deficit for a 7-4 win over Aspirus Keweenaw Tuesday in Major (age 11-12) division play at Hancock Driving Park.
A first-inning two-RBI single from Garrett Carlson and a second-inning Justin Norkol RBI double helped Sayen's to a 3-1 lead after two innings, but The Library busted out with six runs in the third inning.

Cortright singled in David Daavettila for an insurance run in his next at-bat, in the fourth inning.
Ashton Janke reached on an error and came around to score on a fifth-inning wild pitch, but that would be Aspirus' only reply.
Walter Crist pitched 2 2/3 innings of hitless relief for the win, striking out six and walking one.
Brody Budweg took the defeat, despite four innings pitched and eight strikeouts.
Cortright led Library with a 3-for-3 outing and four RBIs. Norkol had a pair of hits for Aspirus.
