Tanager baseball reverses losing trend

Tanager baseball reverses losing trend by Jim Prosser In what must be considered a turn of events, the Tanagers posted a 5-4 victory April 14, against the Orioles in Lennox.

Brad Schaack started and gave up a scattering of six hits in 5 innings, before running out of gas and an untimely error sent him to the field.

He was relieved by Ben Oberle who went the rest of the game allowing 1 hit, and 5 infield outs to shut down the Orioles.

Schaack was credited with 5 Ks and gave up only one walk and a total 9 hits to claim the win. Oberle was given the save.

The defense was excellent, with the exception of the error which led to an unearned run, and the offense contributed a satisfying 7 hits and 5 runs, led by Collin Prosser who went 3 for 4 batting with 2 rbi.

Line scores: Vermillion � 5 runs, 7 hits, 2 errors, 8 lob; Lennox � 4 runs, 10 hits, 2 errors, 7 lob.

Besides Prosser, Tanager offensive stats were: Oberle � 1 for 3, 1 run; Kyle Mollet � 2 for 3, 1 run, 2 rbi; Sam Laprath � 1 for 3, 1 run, 1 rbi; and Jason Donald scored a run following a walk.

The varsity season record improved to 2-3.
