Extra-inning downer - 6/6/11

Losing is never fun. Losses in competitive games particularly hurt. Losing games that go-beyond regulation, ones where victory seems so close at some point, are excruciating, especially in the play-offs. The 5th seeded Rushford-Peterson gals unfortunately got to feel that kind of sting in their Section 1A East quarterfinal contest with (4th seeded) Wabasha-Kellogg. A normal 7-inning game was not enough for R-P and W-K, nor was 8 or 9 innings. In the top of the 10th, Trojan Kenzie Lind singled and Kendra Crawford promptly drove her in with a double. R-P propelled ahead 6-5. W-K responded with a leadoff Katie Leisen double. But with 2-outs, she was still at second base (another runner was on first). The Trojans were one-out away from a big victory. The batter at the plate was W-K 9-hitter Raini Staudacher. In one fail-unfair-swoop (to R-P), the junior outfielder delivered with a hit to the right center gap. Staudacher's walk-off triple scored both Falcons runs, giving W-K the bottom of 10th victory. Lind (4-5, RBI) and Leisen (3-5, RBI) paced their respective teams. Unpretty affair; the squads combined for 13 errors. The Trojans finish the year 8-12.

Hitting can be contagious. On certain nights, baseballs just fly. In Caledonia on a Monday night, that was the case. It wasn't necessarily a good thing for the Chatfield Gophers. Things began okay. Thru 2 ½ the Gophers led 6-4, but then the War .....

If there is an area track meet, and Chatfield is there, bet money their girl's relay teams will be placing high. Distance matters some. The 4x100 (400) and 4x200-meter (800) teams (consisting of Erin Kammer, Nichole Clemens, Kileigh Dudek, Madalyn K .....
