Gopher baseball wins TRC south


Mon, May 26th, 2014
Posted in All Sports

Chatfield baseball came into the last (full) week of the regular season in the TRC South driver’s seat (up one game, two left). The first of those contests was a re-match with Southland. Chatfield (#12 in Class A) now sits in the king’s thrown as South champs. The Gophers went to Adams and beat the 5th ranked Rebels. Chatfield finally rolled out senior Nate Skare (4 IP, 3 H, 0 R, 2 BB, 4 K). Drew Hurley then pitched (2 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 1 K). By the time he finished, Chatfield led 1-0. T.J. Moechnig doubled in the fifth. His courtesy runner, Payton Lund, scored after a sac but and an error. Lund again matriculated around the bases in the seventh to give third pitcher, Tommy Jech, an insurance run. Jech closed the door for the save. The Gophers prevailed 2-0. Ethan Woltz (2-3, 3 SB) and Ben Pierce (2-2, 2B) had two hits. Hurley got the win, the Gopher’s ninth straight. Chatfield’s team ERA dropped to 1.38 (20 ER in 15 games). Trent Reinertz was 3-4 (2B) for Southland. Isaac Kloeckner (7 IP, 6 H, 2 R, 0 ER, 1 BB, 5 K) took the loss. The Gophers then beat GMLOK to go a perfect 10-0 in the TRC South (14-2 overall).

Falcon Softball Steals Two, Earns One

A lot was on the line as #9 FC/L (6-2, 10-2) softball took on Chatfield (7-1, 12-4) in a doubleheader. For the Gophers, a pair of wins meant a share of the TRC South (with C-SG). Each team fought for 1A East’s top seed. A couple contests with dramatic endings ensued. In game one, Chatfield used small ball, and a Kirsten Keefe 2-run single, to take a first inning 2-0 lead. Junior pitcher Brook Irish then controlled FC/L’s line-up. A Taylor Pierce-Sprenger sixth inning singled ended a no hit bid. She later scored on a Megan Hendrickson RBI single (2-1). In the seventh, Chatfield had FC/L down to its last out. Kaitlynn Aug then doubled. Pinch-runner Kayla Leiding went to third on a passed ball. Freshman Haley Polin, on a 3-2 count, tied the game with an RBI single. Morgan Malley followed with a single. Pierce-Sprenger then hit a sharp line-drive thru the glove of normally sure-fielding shortstop Sidney Irish. Polin scored to give FC/L the lead. Chatfield got Sidney to third in the bottom, but a couple ground-outs ended it. FCL pilfered game one 3-2. Malley got the win (7 IP, 7 H, 2 ER, 0 BB, 7 K). Pierce-Sprenger was 1-2 (R, 2 BB, ROE). Keefe was 2-3 (both RBI) and Brook went the distance (7 IP, 5 H, 3 R, 2 ER, 4 K, 4 BB) for Chatfield.

In game two, the Gophers again controlled despite a Malley no-hit bid. They got unearned runs in the first and second. Megan LaPlante broke up the no-no in the fifth with a double. She scored on a passed ball making it 3-0. In the bottom of the sixth, after an out, three Falcons reached. Polin then took one for the team (3-1). Malley walked (3-2). Pierce-Sprenger singled (3-3). Steph Erickson singled (4-3). In a seven batter sequence, FCL went from down 3-0 to up 4-3. Chatfield got a runner to second in the seventh. A line-drive double play ended it though. The Falcons (12-2) poached game two 4-3. They (12-3) snared the top seed. Malley threw a one-hitter (3 R, 0 ER, 0 BB, 6 K) while reaching four times (3 BB, HBP, RBI) without an at bat. The win improved her record to 11-1. Pierce-Sprenger was 2-4 (RBI) and Polin 1-1 (BB, RBI, R). The former finished the day 4-6 (2 RBI, R) with a .875 O.B.P. (2 BB, FC). Walks surrendered told a story; FCL/Malley 0, Chatfield/B. Irish/ Jennifer Hanson 9.

Hot Shots

The R-P boys won the TRC golf meet. Charlie Krambeer and Alex Vix finished top five. The FC girls did the same, besting W-K via tiebreaker. Four Falcons finished top ten.

Nick Powell and Clay Olson hit back-to-back home runs, but Parker Dittman’s ground-ball with the bases loaded in the bottom of the seventh plated the winning run to push R-P to victory 9-8. FCL won game two 7-1. M-C then downed the Trojans 6-3. Vitse, the Trojan senior, batted .667 (8-12) thru the four games.
