EV-W baseball team loses double-header v Maple Lake

The Eden Valley-Watkins baseball team lost a double-dipper to the Maple Lake Irish Thursday, May 2; 10-0 and 8-1. Maple Lake hitters jumped out of the dugout and swiped a 4-0 first-inning lead. En-route to the rainbow’s end, the Irish found gold as they rallied for six more runs in the third, behind Dustin Strub’s perfect 3 for 3 efforts. The ambush culminated in a 10-hit 10-run massacre by Maple Lake in game one. Landon Caughey picked up the win, allowing just three hits, while fanning six. Eagles coach Mike Tomsche is optimistic and realistic. “It was a tough night. We are playing hard but not playing at the level we need to. We were short on pitching last night which didn’t help either. Our goal is to keep playing hard, improve each week and hopefully pick up some wins in our upcoming games.” The Eagles managed just three hits, sending a mere 19 hitters to the plate.

EV-W’s Austin Schlangen and Nick Pauly shared the pitching duties in game two, but it didn’t seem to matter how many different pitchers the Maple Lake hitters faced in the 8-1 shellacking. There was no luck involved in the Irish numbers, rallying for 7 earned runs, while collecting 7 hits, and earning 7 walks. Dylan Kotilinek took the complete game win, facing only 27 men, surrendering 1 run on 3 hits and striking out 8.
