Shelby Legion Splits With T'town

Shelby Legion drew first blood and scored five runs in two innings to give them the edge in game 1, 6-4, but had to settle for a split against Teutopolis on Thursday, dropping game 2, 5-1.

In game 1 Jake Keown (2-for-2) hit a 1-out single in the 1st and scored on a passed ball to draw 1st blood, 1-0. T’town answered in the 2nd with a Cody Will triple, and then scored on an error, 1-1.

Big was the 3-run Shelby 3rd. Again, with one out Michael Baker singled, Keown singled and Gunner Theis doubled them home. Hayden Cole and Andrew Hawkins walked to load the bases and, with two outs, Trevor Moore drew an RBI walk, 4-1 Shelby.

Before T’town could answer, Shelby added a pair of runs in the 4th.Ben Helton led off with a single and Baker reached on an error. Keown moved the runners with a sacrifice bunt and, with two outs, Hayden Cole hit a 2-run single for the margin of victory.

Down 6-1, Teutopolis posted their own 3-run rally in the 4th with two outs. A walk, a double and a single, scored one run and an eror gave up another run.

In the 5th, T’town couldn’t come back and took the loss in the first of two 5-inning games.

Christian Vonderheide got the win, going three innings and allowing just one hit, one run, and one walk, while ringing up five batters in those three innings. Gunner Theis came on in the 5th and recorded the save.

Neil Yockey (2-for-3) joined Keown with two hits, but the 2-run double by Theis and the 2-run single by Cole paid the biggest dividends.
