13-14s baseball          Send a link to a friend

[July 05, 2007]  Tuesday night, in a battle for second place in 13-14-year-old baseball action, Illini Central bested Wal-Mart 15-10.

Wal-Mart was sharp at the plate. Austin Jones had three hits and scored three runs. Andy Krusz and Tanner Smith had two hits, Krusz knocking in two runs and Smith with three RBIs. Others with hits for Wal-Mart were Jake Olson, Corey Janssen, Jason Buckles and Seth Graue.

Despite outhitting Illini Central, Wal-Mart did themselves in with errors and walks. Smith (3-1) suffered his first loss, allowing seven walks while striking out five in only two-plus innings of work, spotting Illini Central 11 runs. Jones and Krusz would combine in relief work for four-plus innings, allowing only four runs the rest of the way. In the end, the lead was too much for Wal-Mart to overturn.

The tournament for 13-14-year-olds begins Monday, with games at 5:45 and 8 p.m. Joining three Lincoln teams are teams from Hartsburg-Emden, Mason City and Mount Pulaski. Games will continue on Tuesday and Friday at the same times. The championship game is scheduled for July 13.
