The Brainerd Bees baseball team couldn't figure out the Cold Spring pitching tandem of Zach Femrite and Dave Hinkemeyer as they combined to hold the Bees to a mere four hits while collecting 18 strikeouts as the Springers came away with a 5-2 Lakewood League win Thursday.
Nate Thomas had an RBI double and Darren Goltz added an RBI single for Brainerd. Tim Martin and Brad Amundson accounted for the other two hits for the Bees.
Brainerd's Mike Shogren pitched eight innings, giving up three earned runs on seven hits with nine strikeouts and four walks as the Bees fell to 3-1 overall.
