Baseball: Tigers 12, ACGC 0
Morris Area Chokio Alberta got the job done in five innings Thursday (4/14) against Atwater-Cosmos-Grove City. The baseball Tigers downed the Falcons of ACGC 12-0. The ten-run rule was applied after five innings.
It was a pretty flawless game by the orange and black crew. We scored 12 runs on eight hits and committed no errors. ACGC was hurt by five errors. The Falcons hosted this game at the Atwater diamond.
The score stood 2-0 after one inning. MACA rallied for five runs in the second and had another five-run outburst in the fifth. ACGC had a string of goose eggs due partly to the pitching of Toby Sayles. Sayles pitched the whole way, setting down nine Falcon batters on strikes. He walked one and gave up two hits.
The ACGC pitching was divided among four players: Colton Minnick (the loser), Kobe Holtz, Cullen Hoffmann and Michael Dallmann. The Willmar paper didn't give Minnick's first name but my memory was good for it!
Sean Amundson scored three of the MACA runs while going two-for-four. Ryan Dietz scored a run while socking three hits in four at-bats. Brady Jergenson went one-for-three with two runs scored. Philip Messner crossed home plate once and had a hit. Seth Staples had no hits but scored two runs. Mitch Torgerson added a run to the mix. Philip Anderson's bat resonated with a double.
ACGC's Kobe Holtz gave main spark for the host team with two hits in as many at-bats. Holtz socked a double.
The Willmar paper did not report RBIs for Morris. The runs scored among the individuals did not add up to 12. I suspect there was a sloppy scorebook involved.
