Amateur Baseball: Aces whip Randolph

Isaac Oeltjen and Trey Eckstrom combined to throw an eight-inning no-hitter on Sunday in an 11-1 Red Wing victory over Randolph.

Oeltjen threw the first six innings, giving up an unearned run with a pair of walks and three strikeouts. Eckstrom struck out two in his two innings of work.

The Aces pounded out 15 hits, all singles, including 11 against Railcats' starter Rick Wagner, who allowed five earned and one unearned run over six innings. Ryan Hoey came on in relief, and was tagged for five runs, but just one earned run, in 1 2/3 innings.

Brodie Smith had three hits and three RBI for Red Wing, while Eckstrom had a 4-for-4 day with two runs scored.

The Aces are scheduled to host Elko on Wednesday with a trip to Dundas looming on Sunday.

Cannon Falls 6, Lake City 5

At the end, everything was nearly a match. But Cannon Falls had the slightest edge in one key department: runs. And that allowed the Bears to top Lake City, 6-5, on Sunday.

The Serpents took a 4-2 lead in the fifth with a four-run inning after Cannon Falls had the initial advantage with a two-run second.

The Bears responded with a run in their half of the fifth, two more in the sixth and one in the seventh. Lake City cut the lead in half with a run in the ninth, but Jared Woodward held on to the win. Zachary Wolfe was handed the loss.

Zeke Williams and Brandon Voth each had three hits, and Williams added a pair of RBI for the Bears. Four Serpents, Matt Miller, Austin Baab, Jacob Fletcher and Logan Thomas had two hits with Baab driving in three runs.

Cannon Falls has two more games this week, with Hastings visiting on Wednesday and the Bears heading to Northfield on Saturday.

Lake City hosts Randolph on Friday and then Red Wing on July 20 for a game that was rained out earlier this year.

Miesville 4, Dundas 3

Second-ranked Miesville broke a tie in the top of the ninth inning, and then held off third-ranked Dundas in the bottom half to come away with a 4-3 road victory.

The Class B contest was highlighted by Deryk Marks hitting a solo home run, with Charles Bruchu, Nate Hammes and Brian Sprout each adding RBI for the Mudhens.

Jacob Dickmeyer was given a no decision after giving up two runs on six hits over seven innings. Chris Olean gave up five hits in his two innings of work, but limited the damage to a single run in the ninth to pick up the win.

Miesville will continue its tough schedule on Wednesday when Chanhassen, ranked No. 9, visits the Mudhens. Green Isle (on Friday) and Hastings (on Sunday) complete a three-game week for Miesville.


Red Wing 7, River Falls 2

Brady Schroeder gave up two runs in the fifth inning, but his teammates had already built a five-run lead. Red Wing added two more, and Schroeder shut down the lineup over two more innings as the Aces dropped River Falls, 7-2, on Wednesday.

Schroeder gave way to Isaac Oeltjen after seven innings, eight hits, two earned runs, three walks and six strikeouts. Oeltjen's two innings did not yield a hit or a walk but did have a pair of sterikeouts.

Brody Smith and Trey Eckstrom each had two hits for Red Wing, with Smith and Mitch Matter both driving in two runs.

Trey Larson had three hits for the Fighting Fish, and Drew Walker took the loss after giving up five runs (three earned) on six hits and five walks.

The Aces are scheduled to host Elko on Wednesday with a trip to Dundas looming on Sunday.
