CLEBURNE, Texas — Ryan Flores went seven strong innings and two relievers were equally effective in the final two frames as Fargo-Moorhead defeated Cleburne 2-0 on Sunday to complete a three-game series sweep of the Railroaders at The Depot at Cleburne Station.

Flores, now 2-0, allowed four hits and two walks while striking out five. Luke Lind worked a scoreless eighth and Alex DuBord earned his fourth save pitching the ninth.

In the first inning, the RedHawks' Nick Novak led off with a double and moved to third on Manny Boscan's double. Peter Maris lifted a sacrifice fly to center to score Novak.

The RedHawks added a run in the third when Maris walked, moved to third on an error and scored on a two-out, two-strike wild pitch.

Novak, Drew Ward and Darian Sandford all had two hits, accounting for six of the RedHawks' seven hits.


The RedHawks improved to 6-3 and are tied with Lincoln atop the American Association's West Division standings.

The RedHawks are off Monday before opening their home schedule against Milwaukee at 6:30 p.m. Tuesday, May 23, at Newman Outdoor Field.
