Shelby Legion sweeps St. Anthony


Shelby opened the game with a 3-run 1st. Vonderheide and Keown led off with singles. Vonderheide scored on a wild pitch. Hatfield reached on an error. Keown scored on a ground out RBI by Baker and Hatfield scored on a wild pitch, 3-0.

Despite two Shelby errors, Baker KO’d two batters and got out of the 1st. Shelby added a run in the 2nd, as Aaron White reached on a 1-out error. Vonderheide singled and Keown hit a sac-fly RBI, 4-0.

Shelby was on their way to a rout, but St. Anthony derailed it temporarily with a 4-run 2nd. Baker gave up a walk and hit two batters. He walked another batter and Williams singled. One more Shelby error knotted the score, 4-4.

The derailment didn’t last. Luke Hatfield lit the fuse with a lead-off double in the 3rd, and Shelby rocketed away. The first 11 batters reached base and 10 of them scored.

Baker singled and Helton doubled in two runs. AJ Miller walked and Moore drove in a run on a fielder’s choice, 7-4.

White singled and Vonderheide walked to force in a run. Keown singled in a run and Theis reached on an error, driving in a run. Hatfield came up again and singled a run home. Baker was hit by a pitch and forced a run in.

St. Anthony finally pulled Hoelscher after 11 batters and still with no outs. Helton hit a sac fly RBI and Miller singled a run in. A double play finally pulled the plug on Shelby, which sent 14 men to the plate in the inning.

Down 14-4 in the 3rd, St. Anthony, after dropping a 9-inning, 1-run ball game in the opener, was staring at a 10-run defeat. However, a fifth Shelby double play of the day retired St. Anthony in order.

Shelby added two runs to their lead in the 4th. White led off with a walk and Yockey was hit by a pitch. With one out, Hawkins reached on an error to load the bases.
