Gopher baseball seizes south


Mon, May 19th, 2014
Posted in All Sports

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) and Jech (3 IP, 2 H, 1 R, 0 ER, 1 BB, 3 K, Win) pitched a two-hitter. Lukas Anderson gave up his first earned run of the season in defeat (6 1/3, 4 H, 2 R, 3 BB, 10 K). The Gophers, winners of 8-straight, lead the South by one with two (GMLOK, Southland) left.

Rally…Rally

FCL and GMLOK baseball played two games against each other. Each was decided by late rallies. The Falcons led GMLOK 8-3 thru 6 ½ innings on a Monday. The Bulldogs had just two hits at that point. They rallied though. Doug Sabatke’s 3-run triple closed the gap to 8-7. He scored on a fielder’s choice, tying the game. Isiah Bubany, found his way to third with (one out). On a walk/passed-ball, he tried to score, but was tagged out. The game went to extra innings. There, with two-out, Kirby O’Connor, FCL’s only hitless batter, slapped a ball slowly past the pitcher. He beat the throw to first. Nick Mensink, who started at second base, came around to score the winning run. FCL survived 9-8. Gatlin Woellert (3-5, RBI), Collin Bennett (3-4, 2 RBI, R), and Mensink (3-5, 3 R, RBI, Win) led the Falcons. Josh Jones (6 IP, 2 H, 3 R, 1 ER, 3 BB, 3 K, no decision) had a quality start. Blake Olson (2-4, RBI, 2 R, SB), Trenton Bleifus (2-5, 2 RBI, R) and Sabatke (1-4, 3 RBI, R) led the Bulldogs.

In a Friday game, FCL had to rally. The Bulldogs led 7-3 after 5 ½, and 7-5 after 6 ½. In their last at bat, FCL got help from a couple GMLOK errors. With the score 7-6, with two-out and runners on the corners, a Woellert single plated both runs to give the Falcons the 8-7 walk-off win. Andy Love (2-4, 3B, 2 RBI, 3 R), Kiel Larson (2-4, R), and Woellert (1-3, 3 RBI) led FCL. Jones (7 IP, 10 H, 7 R, 3 ER, 1 BB, 5 K) got the win. Jake Rindels (4-5, 3 R, 2 SB) led GMLOK out of the lead-off position. FC/L is 2-4, 2-7. GMLOK is 1-4, 2-11.
