Gopher Five

With three consecutive one-run victories under their belt, Chatfield baseball kept Uncle-Mo on their side. Three days after defeating Fillmore Central, they faced them again. Through three, neither team could put a 'crooked number' on the scoreboard. FC put a two up in the fourth, but Chatfield doubled that in the fifth. They took an 8-4 lead, one that held up. Justin Viss was key in that, going 3-4 with a triple and a pair of RBI's. The performance left Justin a gaudy 8 for his last 11 in his last three games, with 7 RBI's and a (game-winning) home run. Tyler Eickhoff (2-3, 2 runs) and Darren Hill (1-4, 2 RBI's) paced the Falcons. A night and two innings later, Chatfield left no doubt against GMLOK. The Gophers scored 12 runs in the 3rd. Jake Neis, Tyler Lund, Erik Hilgren, and Nate Vogen all went 2-2, in the inning. Vogen took the cake, smacking an RBI triple and then smashing his second GS-HR of the season! The game was called after five, Gophers 16, Bulldogs 4. Stat of note; Caleb Leichtnam stole two more bases (and added another two versus Caledonia-Spring Grove), giving him 20 thefts in 11 games.
