Shelby Legion sweeps St. Anthony

Shelby Sr. Legion baseball won a nip’n tuck game 1 against St. Anthony, 3-2, on Thursday, then exploded in the nightcap for a 22-4 blowout.

Game 1 had an interesting set of dynamics that conspired to make it a close game. Both starters lasted nine innings. They only gave up a total of just five runs, but gave up 18 hits.

One pitcher, Zack Gardewine, the loser, walked seven batters, but struck out 10. He only gave up five hits in eight innings. But four hits in the 9th cost him the game.

Jake Keown, the winner, walked no one, but walked just six. He gave up nine hits in eight innings, seven in the first three innings, but zero in the 9th. He struck out just four batters in eight innings, but KO’d two more in the 9th, then caught the final out.

Add in that one team had the only errors, two. That team won.

The star hitter for the winner was the pitcher, Keown (4-for-5), who drove in the winning run in the 9th.

St. Anthony had a chance had to score in the 1st, but a Shelby 4-6-3 double play pulled the rug out from under that chance, Neil Yockey to Christian Vonderheide to Andrew Hawkins.

Shelby got on the board first in the 2nd inning with yet another Hammering Luke Hatfield home run, a lead-off solo shot. With two outs, Neil Yockey worked a walk, Ben Helton drew a walk and the #9 hitter, Mike Baker hit an RBI-single, 2-0.

St. Anthony had a man on 3rd in the 2nd, but a second double play (5-4-3), Hayden Cole to Yockey to Hawkins to end that St. A chance.

St. Anthony answered back in the bottom of the 3rd with their own 2-run spurt. Kyle Bourgouis singled and Jacob Lorenz was hit by a pitch. after a Neil Ritz sacrifice, Neil Williams singled in a run. Eli Dasenbrock singled and Lorenz scored on an outfield miscue, 2-2.
