Shelby Sweeps St Anthony

Shelby Legion hosted and toasted St. Anthony on Thursday, 12-2 and 3-0.

St. Anthony missed opportunities in game 1. Shelby went up 4-2 in the 3rd, then exploded for eight runs in the bottom of the 5th. A walk-off 2-run homer by Gunner Theis pulled the plug on St. Anthony, 12-2.

In game 2, St. Anthony only had two runners on base in one inning and were shutout by Shelby’s Jake Keown. Shelby didn’t take advantage of all their chances, but still scored enough to earn the sweep, 3-0.

St. Anthony started the day getting four base runners in a row in the 1st on a walk, a single and two more walks. The y were up 1-0 with one out and the bases loaded. But McConnell rang up the next two batters to get out of the jam.

Shelby tied it in the bottom of the inning. Christian Vonderheide reached on an error, Keown singled and Theis singled the run in, 1-1. Shelby went up in the 2nd, when AJ Miller led off reaching on another error. Aaron White sac bunted him to 2nd and, with two outs, Vonderheide drove him in with a single, 2-1.

St. Anthony got that run back in the 3rd. A lead-off single, a fielder’s choice and a sacrifice made it 2-2.

Shelby reclaimed the lead in the bottom of the 3rd when Hayden Cole launched a 2-run home run, after Theis drew a lead-off walk. Andrew Hawkins doubled but was stranded at 3rd, 4-2 Shelby.

St. Anthony got their first batter on in the 4th and a 1-out walk, but they were both out on the base paths. Neither team threatened for an inning and they went to the bottom of the 5th with Shelby still up 4-2.

Shelby exploded. With one out, Cole was hit by a pitch and Hawkins and Neil Yockey drew walks to load the bases. With ducks on the pond, McConnell hit a 2-run single. White reached on a dropped 3rd strike. Shelby had put five straight batters on base.
