Hinton (11-9) 13, Gehlen Catholic (13-11) 2

Spencer 12, Le Mars (8-14/5-5) 10

LE MARS — Hinton avenged a 4-1, ten-inning loss in early June to Gehlen Catholic by unleashing an 18-hit attack and drilling the Lady Jays 13-2 Wednesday night at the Riverview Complex in non-conference softball play.  Hannah Treiweiler opened the scoring with a two-run homer in the first inning and later would add two more RBI hits for the Blackhawks.  Aly Vondrak keyed a five-run sixth inning with a two-run single and added another two-run single in the seventh as Hinton scored three more times to open a 13-1 lead.  Tessa DeRocher scattered seven hits and allowed just one earned run for Hinton in the pitching circle.  She also extended a 2-1 lead with a two-run single in the third.  Hinton improves to 11-and-9 for the season while Gehlen saw their three-game winning streak halted as the Lady Jays fell to 13-and-11.

LE MARS — It happened again!  The Le Mars girls fell victim to a seventh inning rally for the fourth time this season as Spencer rallied for three seventh inning runs to clip the Lady Bulldogs 12-10 in Lakes Conference softball play at the Bulldog Complex.  The game was a preview of the 4A Regional opener July 7th in Le Mars between the two schools.  Le Mars took an 8-5 lead into the sixth inning, fell behind 9-8 after a four-run sixth by Spencer, only to re-take the lead at 10-9 as Crystal Eppling drove in two runs.  Two errors fueled the seventh inning rally for the Lady Tigers.  Jenny Dirkx tied the game with a single with the go-ahead run scoring on an error.  Miriah Richardson drove in an insurance run with a single to complete the scoring.  Bre Small then shutout Le Mars in the bottom of the seventh to nail down the victory although Kaitlyn Raymond opened the inning with a double and advanced to third with one out before Small got a ground out and a fly ball to center to end the threat.  Kalin Hardyk had three hits for Le Mars and one RBI while Crystal Eppling drove in three runs.  Kalin Hardyk took the loss in the pitching circle, coming on in relief of starter Brook Berkenpas.  Le Mars falls to 8-and-14 for the season and 5-and-5 in the Lakes Conference.

Gehlen Catholic (8-8) 1, Hinton (13-3) 0

Le Mars (9-11/4-6) 13, Spencer 3, five innings

LE MARS — Evan Buddin and Gerardo Beltran combined on a five-hit shutout and Roman Freking’s first inning RBI single would be all the scoring in the game as Gehlen upset the Hinton Blackhawks 1-0 Wednesday night at the Riverview Complex in a non-conference baseball match-up.  Buddin worked the first 5 2/3 innings with Beltran retiring all four batters he faced in the game to earn a save.  Blake VandeHoef suffered the loss, despite giving up just four hits and striking out seven.  Freking’s single in the first scored Lucas McCarty from second base after McCarty had reached on an error and was then bunted to second base.  The victory, Gehlen’s biggest of the season, left the Jays at 8-and-8 while Hinton falls to 13-and-3.

LE MARS — Le Mars completed a season sweep of defending league champion Spencer with a 13-3, five inning Lakes Conference baseball victory Wednesday night at the Bulldog Complex.  Gabe Eckstaine had a pretty good night!  He threw a complete-game, five-hitter with seven strike outs and went 3-for-4 at the plate with two doubles and three RBI’s.  Keaton Candor also went 3-for-4 with a double and three RBI’s.  Kyle Kliever belted a two-run homer.  A six-run fifth inning brought the game to early end on the ‘Ten-Run Rule’.  Le Mars is now 9-and-11 for the season and 4-and-6 in Lakes Conference play.

Gehlen Catholic (9-8/4-5) 6, South O’Brien 4

GRANVILLE — Gehlen Catholic turned to a pair of little used pitchers Thursday night to eat some innings heading into the Gehlen/Spalding Tournament this weekend.  Izaac Herbst and Colin Wise did more than that though!  They gave coach Marty Kurth a solid effort that led to a 6-4 War Eagle Conference baseball win over South O’Brien at Granville’s Vosburg Field.  Herbst, making his second start of the year after making two relief appearances, pitched into the sixth inning before running out of gas.  Herbst threw shutout baseball for five innings before two errors and three hits led to four unearned runs and ended his night with no outs and the bases loaded in the sixth.  Wise, making just his second appearance of the season, retired all six batters he faced to earn his first career save.  Herbst and Wise combined on a five-hitter with eight strikeouts.  The Jays built a 6-0 lead, thanks to five Wolverine errors.  The Jays plated three runs in the fifth on Roman Freking’s RBI double and a sacrifice fly by Evan Budden with another run scoring on an error.  South O’Brien’s Cody Johanson limited Gehlen to four hits and struck out nine batters but he walked five and hit five batters.  Gehlen improves to 9-and-8 for the season and 4-and-5 in the W-E-C.  The Jays will take a four-game winning streak into a 5 p.m. semifinal game Friday at the Gehlen/Spalding Tournament in Granville.
