Ben Domagala had complete control through four innings, but an error, a sacrifice bunt and a timely two-run single erased Red Wing's one-run lead as Rochester Century rallied for a 2-1 victory on Thursday. Seth Cushing gave the Wingers a 1-0 lead in the top of the fourth inning with a double to left field that scored Seth Morem. That gave Domagala something to work with, and it was enough as the Panthers were able to get just two base runners through four innings, and one of those was on an error.
Carter Danielson pitched six solid innings, but Goodhue managed just one run offensively in a 2-1 loss to Kasson-Mantorville on Thursday. Casey Ryan had one of the Wildcats' four hits, and knocked in Jack Gadient for their only run in the second inning. Danielson allowed both runs, but just one earned, on seven hits while striking out three. Goodhue (2-3) will head to Dodge Center on Tuesday to face Triton.
Brady Braaten picked up a win on the mound on Thursday as Pine Island knocked around Triton, 8-0. Braaten had six strikeouts over four innings, allowing three hits and a single walk. The Panthers (4-1) will head to Stewartville on Tuesday.
Max Bowen pounded the strike zone, and Cannon Falls' hitters beat up the baseball and Byron's pitching, as the Bombers' defense and offense combined for an impressive 10-0, six-inning victory in their home opener on Thursday. Bowen allowed five hits and three walks over six innings to pick up the win, striking out six while allowing just two Bears to reach third base.
Stewartville pitcher Kara O’Byrne was nearly perfect on Thursday, striking out 19 while giving up just one hit and no walks in the Tigers’ 8-0 Hiawatha Valley League win over Goodhue on Thursday. The Wildcats’ lone hit came from Emily Benrud, who went 1-for-3 with a stolen base. Abby Doerhoefer took the loss after giving up 11 hits and eight runs while striking out three. Goodhue (0-1, 0-1 HVL) plays host to Rochester Lourdes on Tuesday.
Hayfield managed to hold Kenyon-Wanamingo to one hit on Thursday in a 12-2 Hiawatha Valley League win on Thursday. Shera Clawiter had the Knights’ lone hit, and Sydney Burrow drove in a run in the loss. K-W (0-4, 0-4 HVL) heads to Bethlehem Academy on Tuesday.
Held to two hits, the Red Wing softball team dropped a Big Nine Conference game to Rochester Century Thursday at Red Wing High School. Grace Pagel went 1-for-1 and reached base on all three of her at-bats while Marissa Kelly got the Wingers’ other hit with a single. Justine Swenning took the loss after striking out three while walking two over five innings.
Randolph remains undefeated after beating defending Section 1A champ Hayfield on Tuesday, 12-4 in Randolph. Megan Erickson paced the Rockets' offense by going 3-for-4 with a double, two runs scored and an RBI. Skyler Turek was 2-for-4 with three RBI and a pair of runs, McKenna Otte was 2-for-4 with three runs scored and Morgyn Otte finished 2-for-2 with a double, one RBI and two runs scored. “We really hit the ball well today,” said Randolph head coach Dennis Trom. “The girls did a good job of getting in hitter's counts and being very aggressive at the plate.”
In the first meet of the season at Mississippi National Golf Links, the Red Wing boys' golf team cruised by Faribault for a 320-378 Big Nine Conference dual victory on Tuesday. “We played pretty well. There's a few things to clean up,” said Wingers head coach Nate Gale. “Shooting 320 on a cool day, that's not bad.”
Seth Morem's RBI single in the bottom of the first inning was all Teddy Tauer needed on Tuesday as Red Wing blanked Albert Lea, 5-0, to pick up a Big Nine Conference victory.
