Wabasso earns first league wins in doubleheader sweep
WABASSO — The Wabasso amateur baseball team picked up two big victories on Sunday and did so with a different approach each time, defeating Sacred Heart 6-5 and Granite Falls 5-0.
Wabasso started its doubleheader against Sacred Heart and needed a little late magic to come away with a win. With the score deadlocked at five apiece and the Saints having scored runs in the eighth and ninth innings, Wabasso headed to the plate one last time. Sam Guetter and Bryant Haas got aboard before an intentional walk loaded the bases. Carter Guetter then stepped up and delivered the walk-off base hit down the left field line to give Wabasso its first Corn Belt League win in team history.
Sam Guetter led the way for the Jaxx with a home run and two RBI while Carter Guetter added a pair of hits and two RBI of his own.
Devan Liebl earned the victory on the mound for Wabasso, going eight innings.
Against Granite Falls, the Jaxx looked to turn things around after the Kilowatts tossed a pair of no-hitters in their two matchups last year from Colton and Cam Vien. Wabasso would do just that, getting a three-hit shutout performance from Kyle Lechner to highlight a 5-0 win. Lechner earned the complete game victory on the mound for the Jaxx.
Wabasso will face Raymond on Wednesday at 7:30 p.m. while the Kilowatts will face Marshall on Wednesday at 7:30 p.m.
Adrian 5, Ruthton 3
ADRIAN — The Ruthton amateur baseball team fell to Adrian 5-3 on Sunday.
Colin O’Rourke led the way for the Royals with a pair of hits and an RBI while Brent Wiering added a hit and an RBI.
Wiering took the loss on the mound, going 7 1/3 innings while allowing five runs on seven hits and striking out five.
Ruthton will face Tracy on Wednesday at 7:30 p.m.
Milroy Yankees 6
DELANO — The Milroy Yankees battled back from a three-run deficit against Delano on Saturday night, but a run by the Athletics in the bottom of the eighth was just enough to push Delano past Milroy 7-6.
Aaron Mathiowetz, Jackson Hughes and Eric Dolan led the way for the Yankees with two hits each while Brian Dolan added three RBI.
Austin Deutz took the loss on the mound, going seven innings while allowing six runs on nine hits and striking out five.
The Yankees will face Springfield on Tuesday at 7:30 p.m.
