RUTHVEN - Tied at 1-1 through three innings, a couple of Graettinger-Terril/Ruthven-Ayrshire errors opened the gates for visiting Emmetsburg on Friday.
The E'Hawks plated three runs in the top of the fourth and scored five runs over the next two innings on the way to a 9-1 victory.
The Titans finished with five hits on the night-just half of Emmetsburg's 10.
