I will remind you that some of my Tiger sports posts are on my companion website, "Morris of Course." Click on the permalink below to read about the MACA softball split of a doubleheader at Montevideo on May 9.
And, you may click on the link below to read about these other recent Tiger games: the doubleheader sweep by MACA softball over Sauk Centre on May 6, scores of 1-0 and 2-1; the 8-4 baseball triumph over New London-Spicer on May 5; and the softball loss at the hands of Marshall on May 5, score of 4-1.

Eight hits vs. the Falcons
Bryce Jergenson scored three of the MACA baseball runs vs. ACGC on Friday. He went two-for-five. The Tigers had eight hits in this winning performance. Atwater-Cosmos-Grove City matched that total.
What really worked against the Falcons was errors: six, compared to one by the smoothly-executing Tigers.
Following that five-run first, MACA went on to score three runs in the fourth, and one each in the fifth and seventh. ACGC scored one run in the third and two each in the fifth and seventh.
The other Jergenson in the Tigers' lineup, Brady, went two-for-four with two RBIs. Noah Grove had a double, two runs scored and an RBI. Ethan Stahman and Corey Storck each had a hit and an RBI. (Only seven hits are accounted for in the individual listing, not eight, but that's how the Willmar paper reported it.)
ACGC's Jordan Nelson was a perfect three-for-three with two runs scored. Mitch Macik went two-for-three with an RBI.
On to pitching: It was Noah Grove who was handed the ball for starting pitching duties. He was sharp in his two innings, giving up one hit and no runs while fanning a batter and walking one. But the brevity of his stint - two innings - kept him from getting the win. Instead the 'W' got next to the name of Danny Tracey, whose stint covered five innings. Two of the five runs he allowed were unearned. He allowed seven hits, struck out three and walked three.
The losing pitcher was David Kinzler.
The Tigers are slated to host Minnewaska Area today (Tuesday, 5/13). Our won-lost record now: 7-4.
