Revenge is sweet for Vermillion's Post #1 by Jim Prosser With the anticipated cool down failing to materialize, Vermillion hosted Elk Point/Jefferson in a scheduled double header at Prentis Park on Thursday, July 3.
The temperature was high and the humidity raised the heat index at 100-plus degrees on the playing field.
B.J. Campbell started for Post #1 but after 1 2/3 innings had to be replaced by Dan Holoch. The score at that time was 4-1 in favor of EP/J. Holoch gave up a walk, followed by a team error before closing down the opposition with two more runs to balloon the deficit to 6-1. He then took the team to a seven-K, two-run final victory.
The four-run second inning outburst by the visitors was answered by the Vermillion offense with a five-run response to tie the score. EP/J scored a run in the fourth countered by two runs for the home team.
While the teams were hot, the weather got hotter and some of the players began to succumb to the conditions. The coaches decided to play a six-inning game and eliminate the second game of the double header.
Holoch's win gives him a four win, two loss record. The final line score was: EPJ � 7 runs, 5 hits, 6 errors, 6 lob; Post #1 � 11 runs. 7 hits, 2 errors, 2 lob.
Offense for Post #1 included Ryan Mockler's one for one batting, two runs scored and one RBI. Kyle Mollet scored a run going one for three at bat; Andy Ofstehage went one for three with two runs scored; Holoch had two RBIs on one for two batting; Ben Oberle went one for three with a run and an rbi; Campbell, and Collin Prosser each scored once; and Max Swanson drove in one with his pinch hit in the final inning.
