Travel to Tea results in 'sweep' by Post #1 Vermillion's Legion Post #1 baseball team's next double header was played at Tea vs. the Tea Legion Post #35 and resulted in a "sweep."
Drew Lawrence started the first game and was credited with the win as the team staked him to a five-run lead in the first inning and extended the lead to 8-5 before Dan Tolsma relieved and maintained the lead to the final 14-9 score.
Vermillion Post # 1 was led in scoring by: Eric Holoch � three runs, (on base four times); Tim Broderson � three runs, (also on base four times); Dustin Larson � one run, two for four, and four RBIs; Steven Varns � one run, three for six, two RBIs; Ryan Nelson � one run, one RBI.
The offense was aided by 10 bases on balls and five hit batsmen!
The second game started out with Jason Madsen walking and Steven Varns' double advancing him to score the first run in what would become a real "blowout" at the end of the game. With the score 5-3 in the second inning, Dan Holoch relieved Eric Holoch and held Post #35 to two runs the rest of the way to gain a save on his record. A five-run third inning extended the lead and by the top of the fifth the game appeared to be over, except for the mop-up. NOT SO!
With a 14-hit, 18-run inning, Vermillion Post #1 came up with a 31-5 victory.
Scoring and RBI results were:
Varns � four runs, three hits, two RBIs; Madsen � two runs, one hit, two RBIs; Tyler Vacek � one for three hits, one run, one rbi; Jared Thedorff � three runs, one for one, one RBI; Aaron Baedke � four runs, four for five hits, two RBIs; Dan Holoch � three runs, on base four times; Eric Richord � two runs, two for three, seven RBIs; Adam Brooks � two for three, three RBIs; Eric Jerscheid � one for two, two runs, one RBI; Dustin Larson � two for two, two runs, two RBIs; Todd Anderson � two for three, two runs, three RBIs; Drew Lawrence � one for two, two runs, two RBIs; Pat Brooks � one for two, one run, one RBI; Tim Broderson � one for two, one run, one RBI.
