2019 Region 15C Bracket
Saints Clinch #2 Seed in Region 15C with Win Over Richmond
Timely hitting and a strong outing by pitcher Ethan Vogt kept The Keg in Elrosa July 19 in a 3-0 win over Spring Hill. Elrosa had eight hits with three coming in its two-run third inning. Matt Schmitz singled in Jackson Peter in the first. In the third the big hit was a two-run single by Cody Eichers. He has five RBI since returning to the line-up. Elrosa’s only serious scoring threat after that was in the sixth when an Ethan Vogt single was followed by a Brady Weller double. Spring Hill kept threating to have productive innings, but was often stifled by strikeouts. Vogt finished with 12 Ks, five of which ended innings. The Chargers broke the shutout bid in the ninth inning when Jamie Terres hit his second double. With one out Eric Schoenberg singled to right and Terres, who never quit running, scored. He was helped by a less-than-clean throw to the cutoff. Nathan Terres also doubled for Spring Hill. The loss gives Spring Hill and 8-5 regular. Elrosa is currently 7-5 but could tie the Chargers in the standing with a win Sunday in Richmond. New Munich, which as games July 20 at 11 a.m. in Meire Grove and 1:30 pm in Lake Henry, could also finish 8-5 on the year with two wins. Greenwald has concluded its regular season with a 0-13 record and will be in the lower seed in the upcoming SCL-playoffs

On the mound it was the same story we've all heard a hunert times. Aaron Vogt had a no-hitter into 5th inning, as he would allow 2 in 6 innings of work for the win. he struck out 4 and walked 2. Highlighted in the 5th inning was a 2B saving catch in the right field gap by Brady Weller. As soon as the ball was hit, Aaron Vogt said "thats a double!" but it was denied by a spectacular catch. Ethan Vogt would get the 3 inning save, allowing an unearned run, striking out 3 and walking 2, and one hit.
in the first 3 games, the bats have been clicking with 31 total hits, 12 extra base hits, and 3 HRs. Likewise on the mound. Saints pitchers have been 3-0, allowed 4 runs, 3 earned runs, all while stiking out 29 and walking just 11.
