It was a tale of two games for Cedaredge's baseball team last week.
The Bruins were on the road in Bayfield to face Peak to Peak's Pumas in game one of elimination play.
After a win in that contest, the Bruins faced a tough foe in the Wolverines, and fell 14-0.
Bruins 6, Pumas 5
Cedaredge eased its way to a 1-0 lead after three innings of play and managed to break a 1-1 tie in the top of the sixth for a 4-1 lead going to the seventh.
The Pumas had a great inning and took the lead, 5-4, on a four-run rally in the top of the seventh. Cedaredge rallied with two runs of its own to score a narrow 6-5 win and advance to the next game against Bayfield, a 13-3 winner over Florence.
James Ledonne was perfect at the plate with four hits in as many at bats. He scored one run, had a double and produced three RBIs.
Chance Hanson scored once and knocked in two runs with a double to his credit. Aaron Henrie was two-for-two and scored twice for the Bruins.
Trent Walker was the winning pitcher.
BHS 14, CHS 0
This was not a game the Bruins, or their fans, will want to remember for very long. Keeping its memory might serve as a motivator for the next time Cedaredge and Bayfield meet on the baseball field.
The only baserunner for Cedaredge was a walk to Walker. Up to that point, and after, Bayfield was in control, with Wolverines' pitcher Clay Miller being the best defense Bayfield had. The senior pitcher was nearly perfect on the hill as he collected a no-no with only one baserunner due to the walk issued to Walker.
Miller recorded 15 strikeouts in the five-inning game. The Wolverine's offense collected 11 hits on their way to 14 runs.
Bayfield scored three runs in the first, had four in the second, another three in the third, and put the game away with four more in the fourth.
Cedaredge finished at 14-7 on the year and Bayfield is 19-2 heading into this week's next round of post-season play.blog comments powered by Disqus
