Corning dominates Marysville Jr’s in sweep

Kamble Haverkamp led the offensive charge with three hit and four RBI’s, while Cooper Deters added two hits and an RBI as well. On the mound Ian Haverkamp did enough for the win, as he went all five innings giving up just five hits and two runs while striking out five.

In game two Corning jumped on top from the start and never looked back scoring nine runs in the second inning before going on to win by a 12-1 final in four innings. Kamble Haverkamp and Austin Holthaus each blasted solo home runs in the win, while Ethan Becker collected two RBI’s. Becker also got the win on the mound for Corning, going all four innings allowing just two hits and one run while striking out seven.

Oskaloosa drops non-league doubleheader to Ottawa

Game one was a struggle all the way around for Oskaloosa as Ottawa received a no-hitter while the River Bandits committed four errors in a 12-0 loss. Oskaloosa was only able to get two baserunners on walks by Gage Burdiek and Justin Miller, but failed to record a hit in the contest. Avery Gatzemeyer ultimately pitched well allowing just two earned runs, but his defense let him down giving up seven runs total accredited to Gatzemeyer.

Just like game one the defense struggled in the game two 14-3 loss committing six errors. Ottawa scored five runs in the first, three in the second and three in the third before putting the game away with three more runs in the fifth. Despite the loss Gage Burdiek and Avery Gatzemeyer each collected two hits while Cooper Jepson added the only other hit.
