4 Innings

North Polk from start to finish was able to get at least two runs scored in each of the four innings played. They’d get on the board with two runs in the first inning, and add on seven in the second, two in the third, and five in the fourth for 16 runs total. Carroll’s lone run came in the third when Chase Ragaller hit a sacrifice fly ball to score Cooper Ludwig. The Tiger defense committed one error all together, but that led to four unearned runs for North Polk. The Comets pulled away in four innings to win it 16-1. 

The Tigers’ season continues with another conference game on Wednesday, June 22nd when they travel to Bondurant Farrar.

Kuemper at Shenandoah


Game 1

Kuemper          5

Shenandoah    0

Kuemper in game one of their double header against Shenandoah Monday was lights out defensively and grabbed the win. 

In the first inning, the Knights had Logan Sibenaller in position to score a run at third, but their chance was spoiled thanks to a third and final out off a flyout to right field. Kuemper got back on track with a solid second inning, putting up a game high four runs. Koby Lampman and Cooper Pottebaum got on base from walks and John Boes got on the bag off a hit-by-pitch. Jared Hausman was able to score Pottebaum and get on base himself with a double out to left field. Lampman scored off an error from the catcher and Boes was scored when Sibenaller hit a sac hit. Finally, Hausman was brought home thanks to a grounder from Carter Putney. 

With the 4-0 lead, the Knights’ defense was able to keep them out in front with solid play. Putney was on the hill for all seven innings where he only allowed three hits, a walk, and recorded seven strikeouts in a win. The defense behind him was busy too, getting 21 putouts while committing three errors. Kuemper added one more one for safe keepings in the seventh inning where Sibenaller got on base off a hit by pitch and was scored off an error by the catcher. The Knights kept their lead strong and walked away with a 5-0 win in game one.

Game 2

Shenandoah   6

Kuemper         1

Kuemper’s luck changed a bit in game two where Shendoah was able to produce runs where they didn’t in game one and get stops on defense. 

Shenandoah started off in the first inning with a run scored and stayed out ahead 1-0 for a large majority of the game. Kuemper had three flyouts to the outfield in the first inning, a putout at second and two strikeouts that retired them in the second, and luck was finally on their side in the third. Logan Sibenaller got a base off balls to get on the bags and got all the way to third thanks to two more walks to Mason Knerl and Nate Heinrichs. Despite loading up the bases, Shenandoah was able to get putouts to home, tagging Knerl out, third base, getting Heinrichs out, and finally a 4-3 putout to first to get Carter Putney out for the inning, keeping Kuemper away from scoring. 

The Mustangs were able to get on the board again in the fifth inning with three runs scored, and again in the sixth with two runs scored. Kuemper’s only run came in the top of the sixth with Sibenaller reaching first off an error from the shortstop and was later scored when Cal Wanninger hit a sacrifice fly to right field, scoring him. The Knights had another bases loaded situation in the seventh, but a flyout to left field and two strikeouts was what sealed it for Shenandoah, giving them the 6-1 win. 

Following these games, the Knights fell to a record of 12-11 overall on the season and 5-8 in the Hawkeye 10 Conference. They are back in action on Tuesday, June 21st when they take on Atlantic at Merchants Park.

Audubon at Missouri Valley

Audubon                15

Missouri Valley     14

The first game of the week for Audubon was an exciting and stressful one as they were able to escape Missouri Valley with their 10th win of the season Monday. 

Both teams’ offenses were getting base hits left and right with Missouri Valley starting off with a three run first inning to lead 3-0. Audubon started to gain momentum in the third inning with three runs scored and took a large lead in the fourth with a seven run inning. Gavin Smith, Braden Wessel, and Cooper Nielsen were all big factors in Audubon’s offensive push, with all three being credited with RBIs. Nielsen had the best night among the three going 4-5, but Smith scored the most with three runs scored. Missouri Valley was able to cut into the Audubon lead with a two run score in the fourth to bring down the lead to 9-5. 

The Wheelers rattled off another run scored in the fifth to lead 10-5, but the Big Reds were on their tail. Missouri Valley grabbed another three runs in the bottom of the fifth to cut down the Audubon lead to 10-8. Audubon’s pitching core consisted of Smith, Wessel, Gavin Larsen, and Carson Meaike had some struggles on the hill, allowing each of the Big Red’s runs to be earned. Both teams had big seventh inning stretches with Audubon starting off the inning with five runs scored to extend their lead to 15-8. Missouri Valley’s offensive push was a bit bigger, but not enough to get them the win. With bases loaded and the Big Reds scoring six runs to cut down the Audubon lead to 15-14, Larsen was able to put them away with a final strikeout to win it for Audubon.

The Wheelers improve to 10-7 overall on the season and 8-5 in the Western Iowa Conference. They return to the ballpark on Tuesday, June 21st when they take on LoMa at home.

Ar-We-Va at Coon Rapids Bayard

Coon Rapids Bayard     5

Ar-We-Va                       4

A battle in the Rolling Valley Conference went down Monday evening where the Ar-We-Va Rockets battled well against conference leaders Coon Rapids Bayard, but fell just short in the end. 

Both teams were able to get a run on the board in the first inning and went scoreless in the second. Coon Rapids Bayard started to pull away slowly from the Rockets with a run scored in the third, two in the fifth, and one more in the sixth, all the while keeping Ar-We-Va scoreless. Preston McAlister was on the hill for the Crusaders where in seven innings of work, he allowed four earned runs off six hits and recorded six strikeouts. 

The biggest play from the Rockets was when Cooper Kock knocked his first homerun of the season to score himself and two runners to cut the Crusader lead to 5-4. That big play would end up being the final runs scored for the Rockets as the Crusaders closed out the game to win it 5-4. 

The win elevated the Crusaders to 17-4 overall on the season and 10-0 in the Rolling Valley Conference. The loss dropped Ar-We-Va to 4-9 overall on the season and 3-8 in the conference. Up next for both teams, Ar-We-Va has another conference game on Tuesday, June 21st when they visit Boyer Valley while Coon Rapids Bayard puts their four game winning streak on the line against West Harrison on the road on Tuesday.

IKM-Manning at LoMa

LoMa                  10

IKM-Manning    7

The IKM-Manning Wolves ran out of steam Monday night as they took on LoMa in a late close game. 

LoMa was first on the board, getting a run scored in the bottom of the first inning, and stayed in front thanks to their defense keeping IKM-Manning scoreless. That lasted until the fourth inning when IKM-Manning got a run scored to tie the game at 1-1, which was later overshadowed by LoMa scoring a run in the bottom half of the fourth inning. IKM-Manning once again tied up the ballgame at 2-2 in the fifth with a run scored. Brody Blom, Treyton Barry, and Tristan Barry all had solid nights hitting, with Blom going 2-5 with a double.

The Wolves were finally able to get past the LoMa defense and grab the lead in the top of the sixth at 7-2. Once again, LoMa was there to take back the lead as they had a game-high eight runs scored in the bottom half of the sixth, leading 10-7. That big offensive push from LoMa ended up being the game ender at IKM-Manning was unable to produce runs in the top of the seventh as they ultimately fell to the Panthers. 

The Wolves fell to 6-10 overall on the season and 4-9 in the Western Iowa Conference. They return to action on Tuesday, June 21st when they host Treynor.
