A Spring Sports Smattering


Fri, Apr 26th, 2013
Posted in All Sports

By Paul Trende

Team Mother Nature is no longer undefeated. Multiple county baseball and softball teams finally had their openers (golf is still waiting). They didn’t get much further into their season than an opener though. The weather was good, or good enough, for a trio of days, Monday (the 15th), Tuesday (the 16th), and Saturday (the 20th), and games were played. In between, it was the doldrums of this thing that is supposed to be spring. The rest of the contests scheduled the week of April 15th were annulled due to unseasonably intolerable conditions.

In Chatfield, the Gopher baseball and softball teams (per better field conditions) each hosted St. Charles. The end results were agreeable ones with the Chosen Valley faithful. On the baseball diamond, Nate Skare was unhittable, literally. The junior pitching ace saw nine batters in three innings, and retired all nine, seven by strikeout. Offensively, Jake Neis led off the Gopher half of the first with a double. He scored on Justin Viss groundout, making it 1-0. In the second inning, sophomore Tommy Jech walloped a one-out double. He scored three batters later on a Neis double, making it 2-0 Chatfield. In the third inning, the Gophers tacked on two more runs. A Viss single was followed up by a couple Saint errors and then a Skare sacrifice fly. Thru three innings, Chatfield was firmly in control 4-0.

Then that control waned some. Jech relieved Skare. The Saints liked that. After not getting a hit thru three innings, they registered two in their first three plate appearances against the Gopher sophomore right-hander, the second a hard-hit RBI double to left center by Kameron Bailey. The next two Saints then walked, loading the bases, making things interesting. Neis then relieved Jech, and was just about as unhittable as Skare. He ended the Saints 4th inning threat with a pair of strikeouts. He then pitched the 5th and 6th innings without giving up a hit. He struck out six, but walked five. Chatfield led 5-1 heading the top of the 7th.

There, things again got interesting. The fourth Gopher pitcher, Sawyer Prinsen, took the mound. He struck out the first batter, walked the second, and then gave up a single to Bailey. Following another strikeout, Saint Dane Mueller loaded the bases with a single. Freshmen Derek McCready then nearly unloaded the bases, spanking a double to right center field. Two runners scored. Mueller, who began the play on first .....

Waiting For the Inevitable It just seems to happen, probably all too often for non-Trojan fans. An opponent tests the Rushford-Peterson boys, usually early on, and then presto. R-P forces some turnovers. They score in bunches. Next thing you kn .....
