Gopher baseball seizes south

By Paul Trende

One baseball team stands alone atop the Three Rivers South, the Chatfield Gophers.

Brian Baum’s crew swept R-P in one ‘baseball’ doubleheader. In game one, Nate Skare (2-run single), Tommy Jech (2-run double), and Ethan Woltz (RBI-single) gave Chatfield a 5-0 lead in the third. A Jonnie Koenen RBI groundout plated Wesley Trejo for R-P’s only run. A Zach Eggers RBI-double in the sixth made the final 6-1. Woltz was 2-3 (RBI, 2 SB). Jake Neis (5 IP, 2 H, 1 R, 1 ER, 3 BB, 3 K, Win) and Eggers (2 IP, 0 R, 0 H, 1 BB, 3 K) combined for a three-hitter. In game two, Trojan senior Ross Anderson smacked a first inning 2-run HR. Chatfield, however, scored a run in four of five innings. In the fourth, pinch-hitter Dan Narveson singled and later plated on a wild pitch, the game-winner. Chatfield won 4-2 (in five). Jech and Carter Duxbury drove in runs. Aaron Paulson (3 IP, 3 H, 2 R, 2 ER, 1 BB, 0 K) got the win, Drew Hurley the save (2 IP, 0 R, 1 BB, 2 K).

Chatfield then headed to Preston for a ‘football’ doubleheader. Game one took three hours. The Goph’s had an 8-run first, FCL a 5-run fourth (10-8 Chat). The teams combined for a 13-run fifth. Chatfield edged FC/L by a TD and two, 22-14! The teams combined for 27 hits, FCL pitching had 16 walks, and Chat’s ‘D’ 7 errors. Hurley (4-4, 3B, 5 R, 3 RBI, 2 BB, 2 SB), Jech (4-6, 2B, 2 RBI, 2 R), and T.J. Moechnig (3-5, 4 RBI, 3 SB) had big days. Woltz got the win. Nick Powell (4-5, 2B, 5 RBI’s R) was big for FC/L. In game two, Neis hit a first inning 2-run HR. The Gophers kicked four field goals in the third to lead 14-0. The final was 14-1. Neis (3-4, HR, 2B, 4 RBI, 3 R) and Eggers (3-4, 2B, 3 R, RBI, SB) were big. Tristan Aguilar pitched four perfect innings (3 K) for the win.

The Gophers (7-0, 11-2) then hosted #2 Southland (6-0, 13-0). It was a pitcher’s duel thru five. Neis pitched four no-hit innings (left with an injury). Rebel Taylar Schwartz’s sixth inning 2-out RBI-double broke the scoreless deadlock. Chatfield then loaded the bases (no out) in their sixth. They only got one run though. Ben Pierce scored on a strike-three passed ball. It stayed 1-1 to until Chatfield’s last at bat. Jech drew a lead-off walk. Woltz singled courtesy runner Payton Lund to third. With one out, Drew Hurley blooped a single over a drawn in infield to walk-off Chatfield (8-0, 12-2) into first place (2-1). Neis (4 IP, 0 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 1 K) .....
