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/L’s bats, relinquishing only two hits. Lemay was in trouble just once. W-K scored first. Madyson Main dribbled an infield single to third in the first inning. She stole second, and then advanced the final two bases via past balls. In the second, FC/L had their chance. Taylor Case and Steph Erickson each walked. Victoria Peterson then popped a hit over the second base-person’s glove. It left the bases juiced with nobody out.

But Lemay got back-to-back K’s, followed by a 1-3-putout. She got out of the jam. Her team added a run in the top of the 3rd and won by that 2-0 count. Lemay recorded the win (7 IP, 0 R, 2 H, 10 K, 2 BB). Morgan Malley got the loss (7 IP, 2 R, 5 H, 3 BB, 4 K). Case had FC/L’s other hit (1-2, SB). Five W-K batters each notched singles.

One Big Hit…

It’s what a baseball game can hinge upon. It’s what 5-2 Chatfield needed in their match-up with 7-1 P-E-M. The Gophers had their chances. They put their own backs against the wall. The Bulldogs scored the first two runs of the game in the top of the 5th, courtesy of a leadoff single and then a couple in-field Gopher errors. In the bottom of the 6th, Chatfield racked up three singles, loading the bases with two outs. But Bulldog P Brady Rahman struck out Justin Viss (the side).

In the bottom of the 7th, the Gophers again threatened. Ultimately, Jake Neis stepped to the plate with the bases loaded, two outs, and his team still trailing 2-0. He authored a 3-unassististed ground (his third of the game), giving 1st place P-E-M the victory. Tyler Lund was 2-3, James Burke the same for PEM. Sam Ruth had the game’s only RBI. Rahman (7 IP, 0 R, 6 H, 4 K) got the ‘W’, Jason Kappers (5 1/3, 2 R, 1 ER, 3 H, 2 BB, 3 SO) the ‘L.’

…One Good Pitcher

After a tough loss to PEM, Chatfield baseball trekked to Lewiston looking for a two-fold redemption. On top of getting back on a winning track, the Gophers needed to rectify an April 16th 4-0 loss to Zach Nelson and the Cards. Chatfield managed just an infield hit in that game. Nate Skare, Chatfield’s talented pitcher, was dealt his first (and only) loss. Skare did his part in meeting #2. The sophomore righ .....
