NEW KNOXVILLE — It took an extra inning but the New Bremen Cardinals were able to outlast the New Knoxville Rangers in the opening MAC game for each team 3-2 in eight innings Tuesday in New Knoxville.

Furbush gave way to Logan Nichols, who closed out the game after St. Marys finally pushed two runs across, but not before he had stymied the Roughriders’ bats for most of the game.
