Malcolm def. Yutan, 6-5 in eight innings.

 

For the second straight day, Ainsworth dropped a one-run decision in the Class C Senior Legion State Baseball Tournament.

Alma pitcher Ryan Soderholm allowed four hits and one run in a complete game, with Parker Janicek’s two-run double with two outs in the second inning proved to be the difference in a 2-1 Mudcat win that ended the season for Post 79.

With the bases loaded and two out in the second inning, Janicek roped a double down the left-field line off Ainsworth starter Riggin Temple, plating Wyatt Gibson and Ty Heft for a 2-0 Alma lead.

Ainsworth answered with a run in the top of the third. After reaching on an error and advancing to third, Post 79 right fielder Jacob Fernau stole home as part of a double steal, with Fernau breaking for the plate as Alma tried to throw out Sawyer Williams at second base.

Alma threatened again in the fourth, loading the bases with two outs. After Temple fell behind 3-0 to Levi Jester, Post 79 coach Kevin Martin brought in Hunter Martin to relieve Temple. Facing a 3-0 count with nowhere to put Jester, Martin fired three straight strikes to get Jester swinging and end the threat.

Martin, after tossing a complete game Saturday in a 4-3 loss to Yutan, worked 2-1/3 innings of scoreless relief, allowing just one hit.

Ainsworth put the leadoff hitters on in the fourth, fifth and seventh innings, but could not push the tying run across against Soderholm, who struck out five in the complete game victory.

Temple took the loss for Ainsworth, allowing just the two runs on four hits in his 3-2/3 innings of work. He walked five and struck out four.

Ainsworth ends the season with an 11-8 record.

Ainsworth had the tying and winning runs on base to open the bottom of the final inning Saturday in the opening round of the Class C Senior Legion State Baseball Tournament.

But, a diving catch in center field by Levi Kult and two strikeouts from closer Trevor Ziemba ended the threat and allowed Yutan to escape with a 4-3 win over Post 79.

Ainsworth starter Hunter Martin and Yutan pitcher Jerrad O’Malley were locked in a scoreless duel through three innings before Yutan capitalized on an Ainsworth error to start the fourth frame. Yutan picked up RBI singles from shortstop Brandon O’Hara and left-fielder Austin Fisher to take a 2-0 lead.

Yutan added two more in the top of the fifth, as it was again O’Hara coming through with a bases-loaded single with two outs to plate Wyatt Zaugg and Levi Kult.

O’Malley, after allowing just one hit through four scoreless innings, was replaced to start the home half of the fifth by Parker Hinrichs.

Ben Allen just missed a homerun, doubling off the left field fence to start a Post 79 rally. First baseman Grant Stec drove in Allen with a two-out single. Sawyer Williams followed with a base hit, and both Stec and Williams were driven home on a Martin single to bring Ainsworth within a run at 4-3.

Ainsworth got two runners on in the bottom of the sixth but couldn’t get the tying run home, then left the tying and winning runs stranded on base in the seventh.

Martin pitched the full seven innings for Post 79, allowing eight hits and striking out four in the complete game loss.
