8A-Sunday June 22, 2003 O ~ urname Going 2-0 Thursday in pool play with wins over Rapid City (12-8) and Valley City 1-0), the Richland Patriots can do no less than coming away with a fourth- place finish today at the Delaney legion baseball tournament held in Williston. A tough loss to a strong Minot team Friday hand- ed the Patriots a final 2-1 record in pool play to place second in the pool. Richland vs. Rapid City Against Rapid City in Rich- land's tournament opener, sec- ond-inning singles by Brett lrigoin, K.C. Siebenaler, Gresh Melby and Jesse Nesper helped a pair of Richland runners cross home plate. Rapid City, howev- er, accounted for four runs in the inning to take a two-run lead into the third. Rapid then added four runs in the third to increase the advantage to 8-2. Strong defensive play at third base by Melby, combined with a good arm at the mound by Scott Huff, held Richland put the Rapid City batters down in order the following two innings. A lead off single by Kelly Berndt followed a single by Cole Fink and a sacrifice by Melby put up three runs to the Patriots' scoreboard cutting the margin to 8-5. The Patriots took control of the lead in the sixth inning as a big two-out hit by Melby drove in a pair of Rich- land runs to hand the Patriots a one-run, 9-8 advantage en route to a 12-8 Win. Nesper and Irigoin led Rich- land at the pate with three hits each. Berndt and Melbyladded two hits apiece while Fi/ak and Siebenaler contributed hits as well. Huft went the distance for the Patriots on the mound. Richland vs. Valley CitY Assistant Coach and rostered Patriots team member Evan Krause took the mound for Richland in game two against Rapid City and fanned 13 bat- ters to record the 1-0 shutout. Singles by Berndt in the first and third innings, a single by Nicholas Bawden in the second and Irigoin in the fourth left all three runners stranded as the Patriots couldn't capitalize offensively. Valley City also had a tough time with 11 batters reaching base in the initial four innings with no runner able to cross the plate as well. Richland, with a two-out sin- gle by Nesper in the fifth inning, seized control of the lead as a smashed triple down the first base line by Josh Mueller drove in the game's solo run. Although Valley City threatened in innings five and six, Krause struck out four to silence the bats. Berndt recorded two hits to lead Richland offensively with Mueller, Irigoin, Bawden and Nesper adding hits as well. Krause went all seven innings for the Patriots on the mound. Richland vs. Minot A single by Bawden in the sec- ond and Nesper in the third inning turned up no runs for the Patriots as Minot put together a strong six-run third inning to take control of a 6-0 lead after three complete. With runs scored in the fourth and fifth innings, Minot claimed the eight-run win. Mueller, Bawden and Nesper each ended the game with one hit to lead the team at the plate.

Eureka jumped out early with a 2-0 advantage before Patriots' catcher Jesse Nesper gunned down a runner at second for the initial out. Eureka, however, added three additional runs to seize a 5-0 advantage. Richland countered in the bottom of the inning as Josh Mueller doubled off the right field fence. With a stolen home base by Mueller, coupled with an RBI by Nicholas Bawden into deep left, the Patriots closed the gap to 5- 2. Eureka added three runs in the second before Richland hurler Mike Kunda fanned a batter to retire the side. Although Matt Weber connected with a lead off line shot into left, and Kunda dropped one into short center field, the Patriots were unable to capitalize. The score remained 8-2 at the end of two complete innings. Eureka's bats remained hot as Verhasselt replaced Kunda on the mound in the top of the third. Eureka's lead mounted to 11-2 before Verhas- selt took out the final batter himself. Richland's defense held strong over the next two innings, and with a nice line shot snagged by Bern& at sec- ond, the Patriots' deficit remained at nine runs heading into the bottom of the fifth. Richland's final run of the night was ignited with a lead off sin- gle by Verhasselt past first base. A good drive by Brett Irigoin between fii'st and second helped Verhasselt cross home plate. A pair of runs scored by Eureka in the top of the sixth inning, how- ever, led to the tough loss for Richland. LET'S PUT YOUR HOME EQUITY TO WORK FOR YOU.
