Teeners lose doubleheader to Salem When a team like Salem has a 12-5 won/loss record, you can expect that they have an awesome offense, adequate defense and excellent pitching.
So the Vermillion Teeners baseball team faced the Salem Teener club in a scheduled doubleheader on Saturday, July 14 in Prentis Park with some trepidation.
The first game had Salem scoring first and often as they built a 10-2 advantage after three innings and coasted the rest of the way, scoring four more runs to finish with a 14-2 victory.
Vermillion's Jeremy Yankton started and went one-plus innings with seven runs charged against him. Brad Schaack relieved and went the rest of the game. He also had seven runs charged against him. Because of seven errors by Vermillion, only nine of the runs were earned.
Line scores: Salem � 14 runs, 9 hits, 1 error; Vermillion � 2 runs, 2 hits, 7 errors.
The Vermillion offense was led by Adam Brunick who scored a run on a one for three at-bat performance. Yankton scored the other run. Collin Prosser was one for one batting and drove in one run.
The second game found Vermillion unable to garner a hit as Salem's Tyler VanEmarick shut them down, allowing one run when Brad Schaack led off with a walk, advanced on a passed ball, made third base on a wild pitch and stole home when Prosser was walked.
Like the game at Salem, lightning struck, but this time it was the opposition who scored six runs in the first and 10 in the second which terminated the game.
Line scores: Salem � 16 runs, 10 hits, 1 error; Vermillion � 1 run, 0 hits 4 errors.
Vermillion's season record stands at 1-15.
