(#7-3A)Le Mars 2, (#4-1A)Remsen St. Mary’s 1

REMSEN — Reliever Keaton Candor slipped out of a bases-loaded jam in the bottom of the seventh inning with a pair of strike outs as No. 7 (3A) Le Mars edged No. 4 (1A) Remsen St. Mary’s 2-1 Saturday night at Marv Thelen Memorial Field.  Trent Hilbrands turned in a masterful pitching performance, checking the Hawks to three hits through six innings.  Hilbrands left after three batters in the seventh due to the pitch count limit.  The first two hitters reached on singles before Mitch Schiltz bounced into a force out at second base, scoring a runner from third base.  Candor was greeted by a single and a walk to load the bases with one out before a pair of called third strikes snuffed out the threat and earned Candor his third save of the season.  Hilbrands got the win to improve to 3-and-1.  Hilbrands also drove in the Bulldogs first run with a first inning single.  Le Mars added another run in the third when Jacob Pottebaum reached on a two-base error, went to third on a ground out and scored when Keaton Candor struck out but needed to be retired on a throw to first base.  Jacob Wesselmann (2-2) took the loss, throwing 5 2/3 innings of three-hit ball with no walks and five strike outs.  Le Mars improves to 9-and-3 for the season, having won 9 of the last 11.  St. Mary’s has dropped four of their last six and their record slips to 10-and-6.  The Hawks lost a tough 1-0, eight inning decision to Akron-Westfield on Friday night.
