Hatfield Slams Back-to-Back


There was no mercy rule in this game, so Moultrie-Douglas couldn’t wiggle of the spit.

Christian Vonderheide the Shelby Legion ace was still in control. He gave up just two runs on three hits over four innings, walked no one and struck out six.

Leading 14-2, Shelby twisted the knife in the 5th. Mo-Do reliever Zach Bates got the first batter to pop out. But, Hatfield came up and he hit a 3-2 pitch for his third home run in a row, his second off Bates.

Cole followed with a single and Hawkins reached on an error. With two outs, Vonderheide reached on an error and Yockey drew another walk, forcing in a run. With the bases loaded, Helton hit a 2-run single for an 18-2 lead.

Shelby had spent their ammo, but still gave off some sparks in the next two innings, while Moultrie-Douglas managed to get off a few rounds before they succumbed to their wounds.

In the 6th, Bates singled and Luke Armstrong doubled. Tristan Williams walked, but Shelby turned a double play starting with shortstop Vonderheide to 2nd baseman Yockey to 1st baseman Hawkins. A wild pitch allowed the second run of the inning to score, 18-4 Shelby.

Mo-Do added a run in the bottom of the 7th, when Bates doubled and the other Bates doubled him home, 18-5. Shelby Legion was to travel to Odin on Wednesday, then play at St. Anthony on Saturday at 1 p.m. and host Teutopolis at Windsor on Sunday at 1 p.m.
