Shelby Overcomes Oblong

Shelby Legion missed out on the rained-out Firecracker tournament. However, they brought their own fireworks to Oblong on Friday, blowing up the home team, 12-1, and 10-5.

It was a day of doubles. Shelby smacked six doubles in game 1 and jacked five doubles in game 2 to fuel their double-dip sweep.

In game 1, Andrew Hawkins went 3-for-3 with a double. Jake Keown was 2-for-4 with a double, Neil Yockey was 2-for-3 with a double, Michael Baker was 1-for-3 with a double, and Ben Helton was 1-for-4 with a double.

In game 2, Hayden Cole was 3-for-3 with two doubles, Christian Vonderheide was 2-for-4 with a double, Baker was 3-for-3 with another double, and Keown was 3-for-5 with another double.

After a couple innings in game 1, Shelby erupted against Oblong with a 3-run 3rd and an 8-run 4th.

Trevor Moore led off the 3rd with a single and Baker doubled. With one out, Gunner Theis drove in a run on a ground out. Cole walked, then Hawkins and Yockey had consecutive RBI-singles, 3-0 Shelby.

In the 4th, Helton led off with a double and Moore singled again. With one out, Keown and Theis singled in runs. With two outs, Hawkins doubled in a run. Yockey walked and Luke McConnell hit an RBI-single. Helton reached on an error and drove in a run, making it 10-zip. White singled for the 11-0 Shelby lead.

Shelby added an insurance run in the 5th, when Cole walked and scored after walk to Hawkins and Fielder’s choice by Yockey and a walk to McConnell, 12-0.

Oblong needed three runs to keep the game going in the bottom of the 5th. They got one run on a 1-out error and a double by Blankanketer. It wasn’t enough.

Christian Vonderheide mastered Oblong, ringing up eight batters in five innings, allowing just one run on two hits, and walking no one.
