Tyler Tribute - Page 18 Wednesday, May 6, 2015 Knights move conference mark to 4-1 with win over TMB By Jim Kopel Tribute Sports The RTR Baseball Knights broke open a very close game in Tracy last Tuesday by scoring seven runs in the sixth inning on their way to a 9-1 victory. The Knights banged out seven hits in the big in- ning. They had 11 total in the game. The first five innings of play took only about 50 minutes as both teams were on their game. The Panthers gave the Knights two unearned runs, one in the third and one in the fifth inning. The Panthers got two hits in the bottom of the fifth inning to score their only run of the game. Brent Wiering scored the first run for the Knights af- ter getting HBP. Levi Hurst would get a single after the HBP, but Wiering would score on a Panther error. Ryan Fischer would rope a single to left in the fifth in- ning and score the second RTR run on another Pan- ther error. The big sixth inning started with four consecu- tive hits by Creston Dalle, Jared Baartman, Jacob Fischer and Dain LaRock. The first three RTR batters represented the bottom of the Knights' batting order. Fischer's and LaRock's hits drove in runs. Two runs would then score on an- other Panther error plus a balk. Hurst would get an RBI with a single. Ross Johnson would get a base knock for an RBI. The last run by the Knights was driven in on a double by Hunter Vanlerberghe. LaRock, Hurst and Dalle each had two hits for the Knights. One of Dalle's hits was a booming triple to right-center field in the fourth inning with one out. He was left stranded at third. Ryan Fischer scored two of the runs for the team. Levi Hurst pitched the entire seven innings to pick up his third win of the year. He allowed sev- en hits while striking out eight Panther batters. The key inning for Hurst was probably the bottom of the fourth. The only RTR error of the game, a base knock plus the only walk of the game for Hurst loaded the bases for the home team with NO one out. Levi struck out the next batter. He got a come-backer to himself to force a runner at home. Wiering fielded Dain LaRock a grounder at first for the third out. The score at the time was 1-0 for the Knights. Brent Wiering might have written some history in the game. He was HBP three times in the game. You might think that is un- usual. Last Friday in Prins- burg against CMCS, Brent was also hit by pitch three times! The Knights now have an overall record of 6-2. In the Camden Conference the record is now 4-1. This Thursday they will travel to LQPV and then host Edg- erton on Friday. They trav- el to Dawson on May 11 to battle the Blackjacks. (KEEP THE MERRY-GO- ROUND GOING) Golfers participate in two meets By Jim Kopel Tribute Sports The RTR golfers were quite busy toward the end of last week. On Thursday they traveled to Appleton and on Friday they were golfing in Granite Falls. The home team, LQPV, won their own meet for the boys on Thursday with a score of 172. The RTR Knights beat TMB and the LQPV JVs as they would shoot a 204 for second place. The medalist was Riley Sigdahl of LQPV with a score of 41. Jeremy Alsak- er of the Knights finished fifth with a round of 46. Andrew Williams, Hunter Burns and Hunter Schou- viller would shoot a 48, 54 and 56, respectively, for the team total of 204. Williams's score was the seventh best score for the boys. Cooper and Carter Hansen fired a 58 and 66, respectively. The RTR boys would place third on Friday with five different teams par- ticipating. Once again the LQPV Eagles won the meet with a score of 338 for 18 holes. YME finished second with a score of 357 while the Knights had a score of 390. Minneota and RCW were fourth and fifth, re- spectively. Riley Sigdahl of the Ea- gles kept shooting good golf with a round of 79 for the 18 holes. That was good enough for medalist. ]aden Kallhoff of the Ea- gles finished second with an 80. Hunter Burns of the Knights finally got his game together with a fourth place finish and a round of 86. Jeremy Alsak- er, Andrew Williams and Cooper Hansen rounded out the Knight total with rounds of 92, 97 and 106, respectively. Carter Hans- en and Hunter Schouviller shot 109 and 115, respec- tively. The RTR girls played in Granite Falls on Friday. Four teams participated. LQPV was the winning team with an 18-hole total of 424. yME was second Chloe Hess with a total of 439. Min- neota and RTR followed with scores of 463 and 521, respectively. The medalists were Ra- chel Halvorson and Abby Stender of LQPV with scores of 101. Two other girls would shoot a 106 followed by two girls with 107. Chloe Hess of the Knights was the top Knight golfer with a round of 121. Next up for the golfers is the Camden Conference tournament on May 11 in Marshall. Both girls and boys will play 18 holes in this one. By Jim Kopei Tribute Sports The RTR Baseball Knights traveled to Cotton- wood to play the Lakeview Lakers this past Monday. The Knights would suffer their second conference loss by a score of 8-1. The Lakers had their hitting shoes on for this one. They would outhit the Knights for the game by a count of 13 to 4. They would have at least one hit every inning. However, they would only score in two different innings. They tallied three runs in the second inning and put the game away with five big runs in the sixth inning. The main problem for the Knights all afternoon was getting runners on base. In only one inning did they put more than one runner on base. They did manage to score in that inning. Brent Wiering had a two-out double in the first inning while Creston Dalle had a two-out single in the second inning. Dain La- Rock was HBP in the third inning; he would steal sec- ond and come home with the only RTR run on the only error by the Lakers in the game. LaRock would get an in- field single in the fifth in- ning and once again steal second. However, that hit also came with two outs and nothing became of it. Only down by two runs entering the sixth inning, Wiering would crack a sin- gle to left-center to start the inning. It was the only inning in the game where the Knights got their lead- off hitter on base. A sharp double play by the Lakers followed and that ended that threat. Levi Hurst stated on the hill for the Knights. He didn't pitch that bad, but on this day it just wasn't good enough. The Knights also committed four er- rors that kept innings alive for the home team. Brent Wiering finished the game on the hill. He did strike out two batters but also gave up three hits. The team plays at home on Friday against Edger- ton and travel to Dawson on Monday to battle the Blackjacks. The conference mark now stands at 5-2 while overall they are 7-3. Baseball Knights run conference mark to 5-1 with win over RCW By Jim Kopel Tribute Sports The RTR Knights used a four-run fifth inning to overcome a deficit and improve in the Camden Conference by beating the Renville County West Jag- uars last Thursday. Errors made a huge dif- ference in the game early as a total of six errors were committed in the first two innings. The Jaguars used the RTR errors to score six runs in those first two frames, three of them un- earned. The Knights scored two runs in the second as Dain LaRock and Ryan Fischer would score on an RBI hit by Ross Johnson plus a Jag- uar error. Fischer reached base on the first RTR hit of the game. The team would add their third run in the bot- tom of the second. They would load the bases on another Jaguar error, a La- Rock hit plus two consecu- tive walks by Fischer and Brent Wiering. Wiering would get the RBI as the score was now 6-3 for the Jaguars. The story of the game was probably the Knight relief pitching. Jared Baartman started for the Knights and on this night, did not have his good stuff. Brent Wiering would take over with one out in the second inning. Brent would only allow one run- ner through the next four and two-thirds innings. The four-run fifth inning would start with a Ross Johnson walk. After a wild pitch Hunter Vanlerberghe would get the RBI with a single. Jacob Fischer would also come through with a hit for another RBI. The biggest hit of the inning was a booming double to left-center by Dain La- Rock. It drove home a run and set up things for the winning run to score. While Wiering was set- ting down the Jaguars through the four and two- thirds innings, he still needed to get three outs in the seventh inning. That did not come easy. The first Jaguar doubled to right-center. The next bat- ter was HBP. Two men on and no one out is not the best situation in a close game. The next Jaguar line out to center fielder Creston Dalle. The next batter hit a ground ball to freshman third basemen Jared Baartman. Baartman coolly stepped on third and fired to first. WOW! A game-ending double play makes for great conversa- tion in those long winter months. Jared Baartman The offense for the Knights was led by LaRock and Johnson. They both had two hits and reached base three times in the game. LaRock was also rock-solid in the field. Wiering would finish as the winning pitcher, giving up the one hit while strik- ing out four RCW batters in the five and two-thirds in- nings of hurling. He would hit two Jaguar batters. The Knights, now with a fine conference mark of 5-1, will face their big- gest game of the year this Thursday as they travel to LQPV. LQPV is unbeaten in the conference. On Friday they will host Edgerton. On Monday they will travel to Dawson.
