    5 innings each day.
    So each day will go about an hour and half/two hours.
    Should be done and out each day by 6pm.
    Wednesday seems like the best day weather wise (warm and windy)
    The debut and Coach Bolt and staff at Haymarket Park
    plus the newest class of Husker Baseball players.
    Let's see it.
    Go Big Red!

    Only a couple hundred fans attended. The weather was not exactly as forecasted. Strong winds from right field made you think of scoring concerns and a small ball game was about to unfold.

    Cade Povich was the starting pitcher for the Red Team. Pitched 3 innings. Only ran into trouble in the 2nd inning when Mojo hit an RBI single over short.
    Povich would come back in the 3rd inning with 2 strike outs.

    Braxton Bragg was the starting pitcher the White team. Braxton was getting popped up but the wind and defense were his best friends as no runs were allowed. Braxton did allow a 4 pitch walk with 2 outs, that he followed up with a strike out to end the 2nd inning.

    Ben Klenke pitched the 4th and 5th innings for the Red team. It was in the 4th where Ben got into trouble right away, as he walked the first two batters. Klenke came back with a strike out of Logan Foster. But that's when Keegan Watson would hit an absolute bomb to left field with a 3 run home run for the White team. Mojo would then immediately hit a triple into the right field corner. Aaron Dolney would then hit a sac rbi to left to score Hagge. But Klenke would come back in the 5th inning as it was 3 up, 3 down. White team up 5 to 0 going into the bottom of the 5th inning.

    Tyler Martin would pitch for the White team in the 4th inning. Tyler would end up with runners on the corners with 1 out, only to work his way out with the help of his defense and some fly balls.

    Trey Kissack came in to pitch for the White team in the 5th. Probably did not have the performance he wanted, but was impressive regardless. There was a different sound when Kissack's balls popped into the catcher's mitt. Very little wasted time on the mound. Finds the stripe and throws the hammer down. Unfortunately for Trey that's kinda what happened, it appeared Kissack bounced one in the dirt which the umpire called to have hit the Brandon Sellon's foot. This seemed to upset Trey and ended up walking Joe Acker next. Drew Mackie would get out next on an infield hit, followed by a strike out of Cam Chick. But then Aaron Palensky would hit a 2 RBI single to center, making the score 5 to 2 with 2 outs still in favor of the White team. Luke Roskam would bat next, popping one up to 2nd only to have the ball dropped on an error. Ty Roseberry would then get hit by the pitch making the bases loaded with 2 outs....
    Kissack would leave the game to be replaced by Keegan Watson (who we haven't seen pitch since 2018?). Shay Schanaman would bat next hitting a 2 run RBI single to make the score 5 to 4 still in favor of the White team. Drew Gillan would then tie the game on an RBI single to left. With runners still at the corners and 2 outs, Brandon Sellon would hit the final out to left field to end the game in a tie.

    Noone seemed too bummed out about the game ending in a tie. Some real good performances, in not the best of weather conditions.

    Now we get to see if the weather holds up the rest of the week.
