Reversal of fortunes


Mon, May 28th, 2012
Posted in All Sports

One week after dropping three-straight, the Chatfield Gopher’s baseball team did an about-face. Against Southland, it was not pretty. Chatfield pitching surrendered 13 hits and two walks. Their defense committed four errors. Southland stranded 12 runners. Rebel pitching gave up 11 hits, eight walks, and hit four batters. Their defense committed five errors. The Gophers left 11 on base. Chatfield never trailed but squandered 3-0 and 6-2 leads. Rebel Tyler Kressin’s RBI single in the top of the 7th sent the game to extra innings tied at eight. In the bottom of the 8th, the Gophers got the anti-climatic walk-off win.

With the bases juiced, Mitch Narveson stepped to the plate and on the very first pitch, took it for the team. His hit-batsmen gave the Gophers the 9-8 victory. Kressin (4-5, 3B, RBI, 2 R) and Mike Goergen (3-5, RBI, R, SB) led the Rebel charge. Four Gophers had two hits led by Zach Eggers (2-5, ROE, 3 R, SB). The game featured only one 1-2-3 inning.

The Gophers then took on 11th ranked W-K. It was more baseball formulaic. Pitchers Jake Neis and Will Greenheck dueled to a zero-zero contest thru six innings. In the top of the 7th, Narveson was more heroic with his heroics. He hit his first HR of the season. Neis and Zach Eggers followed with triple/single. The Gophers scored four in the inning to secure a 4-0 win (avenging an 11-5 loss a week earlier). Neis (7 IP, 3 H, 0 R, 5 K, 2 BB) got the win, Greenheck (6 IP, 7 H, 3 R, 2 BB, 4 K) the defeat.

Chatfield then trekked to Preston and took out the Falcons 9 to 2. Tyler Lund (2-5) drove in three runs, Jake Neis (2-5, 2 R, 2B, SB) two. Tyler Eickhoff was 2-4 with two doubles and a run scored for FC/L. The wins moved Chatfield to 13-6, putting them behind PEM (15-3) and W-K (12-5), just ahead of L-A (11-6) and C-SG (11-7). FC/L is 5-12.

Young Pitchers Duel

FC/L’s Morgan Malley and R-P’s Kendra Crawford have pitched the lions-share of the innings for their respective softball teams this year. A freshmen and sophomore, they’ll (likely) pitch (many) more. Each pitched a double-header against each other, throwing well. One came away skunked, the other with two wins. FC/L’s offense came out hitting in game one. Four straight knocks (three 2B’s) to begin the game gave the Falcons the 2-0 lead. R-P got their first runs in the 3rd (two unearned, Crawford RBI single). They jumped ahead 3-2. By the top of the 7th, it was 6-2. .....

Much to their Lemay

Mon, May 7th, 2012
Posted in All Sports

It’s only a coincidence “Lemay” is a combination of the words lament and dismay. It’s only a coincidence. For Fillmore Central/Lanesboro softball, Wabasha-Kellogg’s Sophie was a bringer of both words. W-K’s chief hurler shut down the FC/ .....
