Shelby Explodes Early In Effingham

Shelby Legion exploded early in Effingham on Tuesday and held on for a win in the first game of a twi-night doubleheader, 11-8. They then had a late charge in the nightcap, falling short of the sweep, 5-4.

Christian Vonderheide lit the fuse in the 1st inning of game 1 with a double. Zach Monroe walked and Tyler Romack followed with a an RBI-single. Gunner Thies drew the first of three walks, then Hayden Cole was hit by a pitch, forcing in a run, 2-0.

Trevor Moore walked and forced in another run. Dylan Ohnesorge slapped a 2-run single for a 5-0 lead. Blake Probst and Mark Jones had consecutive singles and Vonderheide was hit by a pitch his second time up in the inning, still with no outs.

A double play and a fly out finally pulled the plug on the rally, but as the dust settled, Shelby was up 7-0 before Effingham ever came to bat.

Effingham got a couple runs back in the bottom of the inning due to two walks, an error, then a 2-run double.

In the 3rd, Shelby got those runs back. Jones led off with a single and, with one out, Monroe drove Jones in with a single. Romack reached on an error and Monroe scored on a wild pitch, 9-2.

With two outs in the 4th, Shelby got going again. Vonderheide walked again and went to 2nd on a wild pitch. Monroe singled him in. Romack and Thies had back-to-back singles and Monroe scored, 11-2.

Shelby took that lead into the bottom of the 7th before loosening their grip. Luke McConnell had gone six innings and allowing just one hit, while walking seven and striking out no one.

Hendryx came on in relief. He KO'd the first batter, then allowed the next six batters on base. He gave up three walks, two singles and a double producing four runs. He rang up another batter, but a wild pitch on a dropped 3rd strike and another walked, cut the lead to 11-8. Ben Helton came on got the one batter he faced to fly out and end the game.
