Below you can find recaps of some of the action from week one.

Sunday, June 2

Marysville sweeps Oskaloosa 10-0 & 5-0

Marysville started fast in both contests and never looked back blanking the River Bandits in both games to kick off the season. In game one Marysville jumped out to a quick 1-0 lead on a single by Jonny Crome before putting the game out of reach with a 5-run fourth inning. Derek Roever, Storm Slupianek, Lucas Dankenbring and Owen Nietfeld all drove in runs in the inning. Slupianek got the win on the mound as well for Marysville, tossing four innings allowing just four hits while striking out two and walking none.

In game two Marysville once again started fast with a run in the first inning as Derek Roever got things rolling with an RBI-single. He finished with two hits in three at-bats, while Owen Nietfeld got the win on the mound going five innings allowing three runs on six hits, striking out six and walking none.

Silver Lake sweeps Hiawatha 18-7 & 17-2

In the first game Silver Lake wasted no time jumping out in front scoring 12 runs in the first inning, sending 16 batters to the plate. Hiawatha tried to battle back scoring four runs in the third inning on a two walks and two hits including a 2-RBI single from Kade Tollefson, but Silver Lake continued to tack on runs which Hiawatha could never overcome. In game one our McDonald’s Player of the Game on Kanzaland Radio was Silver Lake’s Steven Goulart, as he was 3-for-4 with a double, two singles and four RBI’s. Game two was a similar story with Silver Lake jumping on top early and rolling to a run-rule victory.
