Stearns County League
It was more a roll than a slide, but Brady Weller beat the throw to the plate to score for Elrosa.  He scored twice in the win over St. Martin.
Two runs was a common featured in the third Sunday of SCL play.  Following Lake Henry’s 12-2 win on Saturday, came three games on Sunday. Elrosa topped St. Martin 5-2; Spring Hill defeated New Munich 6-2, the same score by which Meire Grove defeated Greenwald.
Pitching took the forefront as Elrosa’1-2 punch of Ethan and Aaron Vogt held St. Martin in check for a 5-2 win this afternoon at Elrosa. Ethan’s seven-inning start resulted in 10 strikeout and four hits. He did allow one run, but not until the sixth inning. He faced only 15 batters in the first five innings of the game, benefitting from a double play in the fifth inning when the Martins Scott Schlangen broke up the no-hitter. Elrosa took a 2-0 first inning lead on a two-run triple by Cody Eichers (2-3). The only other extra base hit was a double by St. Martin’s Jaylyn Acenceau.  Matthew Schlangen had singled in Derek Stroeing in the sixth inning cutting Elrosa’s lead to 2-1. The Saint Brady Weller (2-4) singled in a run in the bottom of the sixth inning. In the eight the Saints scored twice when a throw to the plate on a fielder’s choice went wide allowing Weller and Austin Imdieke to score.  Vogt left the game after seven innings. Aaron Vogt struck out three across the last two innings to preserve the win.  The Saints are now 3-0 in the SCL-North the Martins are 1-1 in the SCL South.
