0-3 is rough start to As season

Posted: Tuesday, Apr 30th, 2013

With a majority of local sports being postponed or cancelled this spring due to poor weather, the Colman As amateur baseball team was able to take advantage of the beautiful weather last weekend and hit the field for the Woodie Classic in Harrisburg, SD. The As dropped all three games during the weekend set, 5-1, 6-2, and 3-2.

Sioux Falls 5 Colman 1

The As first game was Saturday morning when they took on the Sioux Falls Saints. Sioux Falls got on the board first in the second inning, scoring an unearned run off Colmans starting pitcher John Roesher.

The Saints tallied one more run in the third and tacked on three more runs in the fourth, giving them a comfortable 5-0 lead.

The As finally got their first hit in the top of the sixth inning when Austin Ross knocked a single to the outfield to lead off the inning but the As couldnt make anything of it.

Colmans lone run came in the seventh inning after centerfielder Adam Fritz walked, stole second and scored on a Bobby Clark single.

Roesher tossed four innings, giving up eight hits, four earned runs, striking out six. Derek Entringer tossed the final two innings, giving up just one hit and striking out three.

Four Corners 6 Colman 2

The As finally got the bats going in the first inning of their second game, this time versus Four Corners, but the As werent able to hang on, losing 6-2.

Shortstop Deon Entringer led the As off with a double in the bottom of the first followed by an infield single by Paul Clark putting runners at the corners with no outs. Billy Stitz followed Clarks single with one of his own, scoring Entringer on the As third straight hit. The As tacked on one more run in the inning thanks to an RBI single by Fritz that scored Clark.

Four Corners answered with a run in the top of the second but it was the two run fourth inning that gave them their first lead of the game. They would add two more insurance runs in the sixth as well as another in the seventh.

Brandon Womack went six solid innings for the As, giving up just eight hits with three earned runs and three strikeouts. Derek Entringer came in for his second appearance of the year, giving up two hits, no runs and tallying one strikeout in his one inning of work.

Miller 3 Colman 2

The As continued their struggles in the final game of the tournament, despite a solid pitching performance from Paul Clark.

The As got on the board first when Stitz reached to lead off the fourth inning. He went station to station thanks to a single from Aaron Entringer, followed by a fielder choice by Chris Meyer that moved Stitz to third and eventually scored on a groundout by Derek Entringer.

Miller responded with a run of their own in the bottom of the fourth of Clark, who had started the game by striking out five of the first nine hitters.

With the game tied at 1-1, Deon Entringer roped a triple over the center fielders head to lead off the sixth inning and scored two batters later on a Stitz line drive single up the middle.

Miller did not back down however, scoring two runs off reliever Deon Entringer in the bottom of the sixth to take a 3-2 lead. The As couldnt get anything together in the seventh, ending the game with their third loss of the weekend.

Paul Clark went four innings, giving up five hits, one run and seven strikeouts.

The As tallied just five runs on 13 hits including 23 strikeouts in the their three game weekend.

Colmans next game is scheduled for May 15th at home against Garretson.
