Shelby Jr. Firecracker Duds

Shelby Jr. Legion’s fuse was wet at the start the Firecracker Tourney and dropped a pair of games on Tuesday, 8-2 to Moultrie Douglas and 6-0 to Danville.

Shelby had six runners in scoring position in the first five innings, but couldn’t get them in, while Moultrie-Douglas scored five runs in the 1st with only one hit. A hit batter, two walks, a sacrifice and two Shelby errors put Shelby in a hole. Three walks and a hit batter in the 3rd gave up two more runs, 7-0 Mo-Do.

Finally in the 6th, Shelby got on the board. With one out, Trevor Moore hit a single, followed by a single from Dylan Ohnesorge. A fielder’s choice by Jacob Kramer eliminated the lead runner. Tristan Warner reached on an error with two outs and drove in a run. Trevor Easton reached on an error and drove in another run, 7-2 Moultrie-Douglas. Mo-Do added a run in the bottom of the 6th to cap the scoring, 8-2.

In their second game of the day, Shelby couldn’t even get on the board against Danville, 6-0.

Once again, Shelby had seven runners in scoring position, but couldn’t cash in. Moore drew a walk in the 1st and Tristan Warner (2-for-3) singled. They advanced to 3rd and 2nd on a passed ball with one out, but were stranded on the first of nine strikeouts and a ground out.

Danville scored two runs in the bottom of the 1st.

After two strikeouts in the 3rd, Moore drew another walk and Warner singled again. But a ground out killed that chance. Still down just 2-0 in the 4th, Jacob Kramer walked and Trevor Easton hit into a fielder’s choice forcing out Kramer. Easton went to 2nd on a passed ball and Derek Moschenrose reached on a dropped 3rd strike. With just one out, another K and a line out by Josh Overbeck foiled Shelby again.
