    Beautiful 75 degree day. Strong winds out of right field.
    Very small crowd.
    Didn't matter, was a good day to get a free shirt or a foul ball Winking

    Colby Gomes was the Starting pitcher for the White Team. Pitched 3 innings. Had trouble in the first inning allowing 2 Runs (Roskam rbi single up center, Roseberry sac rbi bunt). But Colby came back in the 2nd inning with 3 straight Strike Outs. Started shaky in the 3rd inning with a 4 pitch walk, but induced a pop up and grounder to short, for the first two Outs. Gomes' 3rd Out of the inning came on a Strike Out. Really impressed the way Colby bounced back after the 1st inning.

    Max Schreiber was the Starting pitcher for the Red Team. Max also pitched his teams first 3 innings. His first two innings he only faced 6 batters with one strike out. It was in the 3rd where Max ran into trouble allowing the White Team's only score of the day (Sayer Diederich's sac rbi to center). Overall, one of Max's better performances.

    After 3 innings
    Red-2 White-1

    Sayer Diederich came in from the outfield (?) to pitch the 4th and 5th innings for the White Team. Sayer faced 4 batters in the 4th, and 5 batters in the 5th collecting only one Strike Out. But Sayer also owes Thanks to Leighton Banjoff playing the hot corner at 3rd, because Leighton made 2 amazing catches that robbed Roseberry and later Palensky of extra base hits.

    Caleb Feekin pitched the Red Team's 4th and 5th innings. Caleb faced 5 batters in the 4th, and 4 batters in the 5th. Getting a Strike Out in each inning. Remember Joe Acker being very busy in center helping Caleb get out of his innings.

    Ethan Bradford pitched for the White Team in the 6th and the start of the 7th innings. Ethan only allowed one Run in the 6th (Drew Mackie sac rbi to left) after allowing the bases to get loaded from 2 Walks. Ethan still had 2 Strike Outs in the inning, including one to end the 6th inning. Still even after ending the 6th inning strong, Ethan lost control and walked the first 3 batters in the 7th, loading the bases and ending his night. We'll see Ethan again.

    Quinn Mason took over Bradford's pitching duties for the White Team in the 7th. Quinn came in with bases loaded and no outs, and ended up giving up 2 runs (Palensky rbi single to left, then walked in a run). Mason would get out of the inning off of the day's only double play. Quinn would also start the 8th inning for the White Team but 2 straight walks ended his night.

    Tyler Martin pitched for the Red Squad in the 6th inning. Only faced 5 batters, striking out the first one. He did allow a walk, but it was a good walk to Spencer. Came out of the 6th smelling like roses after Cam Chick made a great defensive play throwing Logan Foster out at 1st.

    Chad Luensmann would pitch the 7th and 8th innings for the Red Team. Chad must have read that part I mentioned about Trey Kissack poppin' the mitt last game... Chad decided to show some pop himself. Faced 4 batters in the 7th, getting 2 Strike Outs but ended up walking Hallmark on a bunt attempt. 3 up, 3 down for Luensmann in the 8th inning and tack on another Strike Out. Nice outing Chad.

    Keegan Watson would come in from of the outfield to take over for Mason in the 8th inning for the White Team. With 2 runners on and no outs, Keegan would give up 2 Runs (Carter Cross sac rbi bunt, Joe Acker rbi single). Keegan would still record one Strike Out while facing 4 batters to get out of the inning.

    It's the Top of the 9th and Trey Kissack is closing for the White Team. Trey seemed a lot more relaxed then his last appearance and maybe let up a touch to gain some more control. Still popping the mitt. Faced 4 batters. Just a fun pitcher to watch throw.

    Shay Schanaman closed the day for the Red Team. 3 up, 3 down. Shay was the 3rd player on the day to see action both on the field (2B) and take the mound.

    Looking back, there are still some pitchers we haven't seen yet this fall; Kyle Perry, Connor Curry, Kyle Wisch, Bo Blessie and Paul Tillotson. You can even throw Spencer into that discussion since he's still listed as INF/RHP. But right now, Schwellenbach is doing his thing at Short Stop.

    No long balls on the day, another windy day out of the South (right field). Logan Foster came the closest, just hitting the opposite side of the foul poll in left. Still liked the teams production despite the conditions. Plus it was a cleaner game with fewer errors (2 or 3 on the day).

    I could go on and on...
