Making this big of a leap, Evan Drilling has no problem avoiding the ball hit by a teammate. Drilling would go to third on the play, then score one of 10 runs Turkey Valley would use in the game one win over MFL Monday.

Trojans sweep MFL-Mar-Mac

Remember the old commercials “this is what your brain looks like on drugs?”

Turkey Valley Dan Stepan used a similar approach when he sent box scores on the Trojan baseball team’s early-week games.

After Monday 10-0 and 8-0 wins over MFL, the coach said, “This is what a box score looks like when you do all three phases of the game well.”

In game one, while Jordon Snyder was pitching a five-inning four hitter with five strikeouts — and not walking a single batter — Turkey Valley backed him up with errorless defense and an offense that used 10 hits to score 10 runs.

Cale Reicks was 3-for-3 with a double and two RBIs, Simon Schmitt drove in four runs while going 2-for-3 with a double and Elliott Dietzenbach was also 2-for-3 and batted in two.

With the win, the Trojans avenged a 15-0 loss that came in the second game of the season, but that was a non-conference and this one counted. So too did the second-game, 8-0 win pitched by Cale Reicks, in which the Trojan senior sent 11 batters down on strikeouts. 

The rest of the story may be found in the June 15 Tribune.
