Storm Lake 8 Le Mars (3-5/0-1) 2

Gehlen Catholic (2-8/2-2) 13, Trinity Christian 1, six innings*

LE MARS — A pair of two out errors led to five unearned runs in the fifth inning as Storm Lake padded a 2-1 lead and won an 8-2 Lakes Conference decision at Le Mars Monday night.  Sophomore Skylar Cole checked the Lady Bulldogs to six hits and struck out ten batters to get the win in the pitching circle.  Grace Milbrodt gave up eight runs on eight hits but five Le Mars errors led to all eight runs being unearned.  Milbrodt had two hits to lead the Le Mars offense and drove in a run in the first inning that tied the score at 1-all.  The Tornados took the lead for good on a two-out throwing error in the fourth, an inning before the five-run explosion.  Both teams scored a run in the seventh.  Le Mars falls to 3-and-5 for the season and 0-and-1 in the Lakes Conference.

HULL — Gehlen Catholic snapped a four-game losing streak with a 13-1, six inning victory at Trinity Christian Monday night in War Eagle Conference softball action.  Gehlen used a pair of five-run innings to turn the game into a rout.  Sydney Livermore had three hits, including a pair of doubles, and drove in one run while Anna Britt drove in three runs with a pair of hits.    The Lady Jays took advantage of seven walks.  Brooke Woerdehoff and Rylee Schnepf combined on a three-hitter with seven strike outs.  The win evens Gehlen’s War Eagle Conference record at 2-and-2 and improves their season record to 2-and-8.


Le Mars (3-5/2-0) 5, Storm Lake 3

Trinity Christian 6, Gehlen Catholic (1-7/1-3) 5*

LE MARS — The Le Mars Bulldogs were limited to one hit Monday night but made the most of that lone hit, a three-run double by Chris Deiterman in the third inning, to beat Storm Lake 5-3 in Lakes Conference baseball play at the Bulldog Complex.  Storm Lake had taken a 3-2 lead with three runs in the top of the third before Deiterman’s hit put the Dogs in front to stay.  Alec Arens, Logan Lancaster and Alec Dreckman combined to three-hit the Tornados.  Arens started the game and gave up two hits and three runs while walking six in 2 1/3 innings.  Lancaster worked 2 2/3 innings of hitless, shutout baseball and earned the win.  Dreckman worked the final two innings, giving up one hit and striking out three to earn a save. Andrew Price started for Storm Lake but failed to get an out before giving up two runs without giving up a hit.  He walked three.  Kayfrin Pelep worked the rest of the game for the Tornados and walked four while giving up the lone hit.  They combined for ten strikeouts.  Le Mars has now won back-to-back games for the first time this season to improve to 3-and-5 for the season and 2-and-0 in the Lakes Conference.

HULL — Gehlen Catholic rallied for three runs in the top of the seventh inning to forge a 5-5 tie only to watch Trinity Christian score a run in the bottom of the seventh for a walk-off, 6-5, War Eagle Conference victory Monday night.  The Jays wasted a good start from Isaac Herbst, who went the distance only to take the loss when the Tigers scored with two outs in their final at-bat.  Herbst gave up just five hits.  Cole Linden led the Jays offensively with two hits and Colin Buddin drove in three runs.  Gehlen falls to 1-and-7 for the season and 1-and-3 in the W-E-C.
