II II Rex open 2010 season with win over Chokio Coyotes The Ortonville Rex opened the 2010 season with an 11-6 win over the Chokio Coyotes. "It was a good start to a new season. Everyone got to play and although it was an exhibition game, we came away with a win," stated Rex Manager Ron Thomas. The game was originally scheduled to be played at Chokio, but because of a rain soaked diamond, the game was moved to the local field. The Rex got off to a good start, plat- ing three runs in the first inning and an- other three runs in the third. Chance Haugen started on the hill and threw four no-hit innings to make the score 6-0. Chokio plated three runs in their half of the fifth inning, but the Rex countered with two runs in the top of the sixth to make the score 8-3. Chokio added another three runs in the bottom of the eighth only to have the Rex add three runs of their own in the top of the ninth to make the final score 11-6. Chance Haugen gets a lot of credit for the quick start. He had an RBI in the first inning and scored a run in the third and had a great no-hit perform- ance on the mound to earn the win. Cory Stattelman threw the fifth and sixth innings giving up three unearned runs on two hits. Joe Fuller came on to hurl the seventh and eighth innings giv- ing up three runs, two of which were earned and Riley Sammon closed the game out in the ninth, giving up no runs on one hit. Leading hitters for the Rex were Chance Haugen with three hits, Tim Haugen and Andrew Treinen each with two hits and Riley Sammon and Chris Smith each with one. "It was typical first game," said Thomas. "Plenty of walks and too many errors, which led to a long game." The 2010 roster for the Rex in- cludes Curt Schake, Joe Fuller, Chance Haugen, John Thomas, Riley Sammon, Cory Stattelman, Jeff Watson, Chris Fellows, Zack Giese, Andrew Treinen, Chris Smith, Pete Ross, Tim Haugen, Matt Fellows, Tony Schake, Keven, Berdan, Isaac Knutson and Dan Berdan.
