"We actually played quite well and pitched very well, but could not get any big hits. We easily could have won both games," stated Rox manager Ron Thomas. The Wheaton game started with the locals scoring a run in the second in- ning when Jeff Watson scored on a fielder's choice and added a run in the sixth when pinch runner Isaac Knutson scored on a sacrifice fly by Cory Stat- telman to give the Rox a 2-0 lead. Joe Fuller was cruising along on the mound, giving up only one hit in six in- nings. Wheaton scored two runs in the top of the eighth inning to tie the game, only to have the Rox come back with a run in the bottom of the inning on a sin- gle by Andrew Treinen giving back the lead to the locals 3-2. Wheaton man- aged four runs in the top of the ninth and then held the Rox scoreless in their last at bat to take the 6-3 win. Leading hitters for the Rox were Riley Sammon, Chance Haugen and Andrew Treinen with two hits each and Joe Fuller, Zack Giese, Jeff Watson and Cory Stattelman each with one hit. Joe Fuller went seven innings, giv- ing up two runs on two hits. Riley Sammon took the loss going two in- nings, giving up four runs on three hits. "The difference in the game is that they bunched their hits into a couple of innings and we didn't. They scored six runs on five hits," said Thomas. On Sunday, the Rox traveled to Sa- cred Heart to make up the Friday night rainout. The final score doesn't look too good, but it Was a good game. The starting pitching was excellent again as Chance Haugen started on the mound and gave up one run in the first seven innings. The eighth inning did the Rox in as Sacred Heart scored five runs on only two hits. Several free passes and wild pitches clinched the game for the Saints. The Rox were in this game all the way and had a runner thrown out at the plate in the seventh inning which would have tied the score at one. Sacred Heart is a very good team. They have been to the State Tourna- ment the past two years. Jeremy Hin- derks started on the mound for them and is one of the best pitchers in the area. sta a nk
