Strikeout is the name of the game


Fri, Apr 15th, 2011
Posted in Sports

The Rushford-Peterson Trojans opened their baseball season playing host to Caledonia-Spring Grove. Pitching took center stage. R-P senior Blake Erickson struck out 12 batters, walked two, and surrendered four hits and (with three R-P errors) five runs, enroute to a complete game. His solid performance was only overshadowed by C-SG senior Ivan Augedahl's 10-strikeout, 2-walk, 1-hit complete game shutout victory. Ben Krambeer was the sole Trojan to solve the Augedahl pitching puzzle, notching a 4th inning double. Tony Frank provided C-SG's offense, smacking a 2-run homer in the 4th. It was more than enough to lead his team to a 5-0 victory in the opener for both clubs.

Unlike most teams, this squad is a dictatorship. Only one person voted to form its membership. One voter is really all that's needed. It was pretty cut and dry as to who played the best basketball individually in Fillmore County this year. T .....
