10 games, 3 days

Three double-headers, a miraculous comeback, an extra-inning Schneid-ending win, two pitchers racking up ‘W’s’, five HR’s including a grand slam, with Chatfield’s ball teams at the front of it all; county-on-county crime!

Finally!

The week began with GMLOK baseball (0-11) searching for its first victory. Chatfield did them no favors. The Gophers jumped out 2-0, withstood a 1st & 2nd 1-out threat in the 6th, before scoring four in the 7th to win 6-0. Jake Neis led the way, going 4-5 (second straight game) and getting the win (6 IP, 5 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 4 K). Trenton Bliefus was 2-3 for GMLOK.

The Bulldogs then trekked to Rushford for a double-header. Win #1 looked a lock in game #1. Behind Sam Eberle (4-4, 2B, 3 RBI, 3 R, SB/4 H, 1 R, thru 6 IP), the ‘Dogs led 7-1 heading to the last ½ inning. But a bean ball and three R-P singles ousted Eberle (score 7-2). A Zach Ansell 2-run 2B, an ‘E’, two ‘BB’s’, and a Riley Vitse RBI 1B later; the game was tied!

With the bases load and no out, Shane Jacobson ended it, with of all things, a suicide-squeeze. R-P rallied to the 8-7 win. Vitse (3-4, RBI), Ansell (1-2, 2B, 2 R, 2 RBI), and Ethan Wilkemeyer (1-2, RBI, R) did damage for the Trojans, Isiah Bubany (2-4, 2 R, 2 SB), Bliefus (2-3, RBI, R), and Lucas Roe (1-4, 2 RBI) for GMLOK.

In game two, the Bulldogs finally shot the monkey. It took until the last ½ of the 8th. With runners on 1st and 2nd, Roe hit a grounder to short. The throw to 1st was errant. Bliefus scored from 2nd, scoring the Bulldogs the 5-4 streak-ending victory. Bubany was 2-4 and got the ‘W’ (in relief). Wilkemeyer was 2-3 (2B, 2 R/CG loss). Cale Stensgard (R-P) drove in two, as did Eberle, who reached in all eight at bats in the two games.

Prominent Pitchers

The same night in Chatfield, FC/L’s ball teams dealt with the Gophers and ace pitchers Nate Skare and Katie Jech. At Molly Baum Field, Skare didn’t have his best stuff (5 IP, 6 H, 3 R, 1 ER, 2 BB, 3 K). FC/L’s pitchers didn’t either (10 BB’s, 3 HBP’s). Gopher Zach Eggers (2-3, 3 RBI, 3 R) shined. Chatfield downed FC/L 8-4. Skare moved to 6-1. Jake Ristau was 2-3 (2 R), Dan Gatzke 2-4 (2B, RBI), and Zach Olstad 1-3 (2 RBI) for FC/L.

A couple hundred yards away, Jech took the mound for game one of two. She shined (7 IP, 6 H, 0 R, 8 K, 0 BB), but got help from FC/L’s defense (four 1st inning error .....
