Momentum started to swing in favor of the Bemidji High School baseball team when Alex LaZella clubbed a three-run home run on Monday.
The high-flying blast put the Lumberjacks ahead of Brainerd 3-2 in the fourth inning. But the Warriors came right back in the fifth, regaining the lead for good in a 6-4 road win at the BSU baseball field.
BHS will return to the BSU baseball field for a doubleheader on Friday, May 17. Bemidji will play Grand Rapids at 2:30 p.m. and Duluth East at 7:30 p.m.
