Rams Storm Back v. Tolono


With runners on 2nd and 3rd, a sizzling liner went to the shortstop and he doubled the runner off 3rd. Snodgrass KO'd the next man and it was still, 2-0.

The Rams were holding their own in the Tolono 4th as McConnell threw the first two batters out from short. Tolono got a 2-out double, then the Rams committed two straight errors and let two runs score, 4-0 Tolono.

Shelby needed something to go right. McConnell drew a lead-off walk and, with one out, Peifer lost a ball over the evergreens beyond the left field fence for a 2-run homer.

Shelby inched closer, down 4-2, and it was too close for Tolono comfort in the 5th. A lead-off walk was followed by a double and two RBI-singles in a row. A sacrifice fly RBI made it 8-2 with just one out.

McConnell had come on in relief and threw a batter out from the mound. He walked a man, but Peifer gunned him down trying to steal 2nd to bring the Rams to the plate.

Shadwell led off the Ram 5th with his third straight single. With two outs, McConnell smacked a double and Shadwell raced home, 8-3.

McConnell KO's the first two Tolono batters in the 6th, then walked the next two. But Brachbill made the long throw on a ground ball to bring the Rams up again.

Snodgrass rang up his seventh Ram to start the 6th. But Tytler Hendryx responded with a double. With two outs, Kennell slapped a single and sent Hendryx home, 8-4.

Shadwell had Snodgrass' number and his third hit of the game was a triple, scoring Kennell, 8-5. Brachbill walked with two outs, then Duckett singled Shadwell across, 8-6.

Tolono needed to score in the 7th to hold off the surging Rams, but they couldn't. Meyer made the 3-unassisted play at 1st and Shadwell made the play on a grounder to 2nd. After a single, Duckett made the short play on fielder's choice, short to 2nd.
