Vermillion Reds sweep Lennox Saturday

The Vermillion Reds, the younger of the two Teener teams, closed its home schedule at Prentis Park with a doubleheader sweep of Lennox Saturday.

Vermillion dominated the first game, closing it down with a four-run fifth inning that gave them an 11-1 win via the 10-run mercy rule.  It was decided to play two more innings as another game, and the Reds also won that one, 2-0.

Brett Hanson pitched all five innings of the opener.  After escaping a bases-loaded situation in the first inning, he was never in trouble once his team gave him a big lead.  Hanson picked a pair of runners off base, catcher Brandon Mockler picked another off third, and shortstop Carter Kratz contributed with a snare of a line drive that he turned into a double play.

On offense Hunter Christopherson and Joe Miller reached base all four times they batted.  Christopherson had three hits and two RBIs while Miller and Riley Peters each had two hits with one RBI. 

In the abbreviated second game Billy Mount drove in a run with a single, and Hanson, who had the other Reds hit, scored the second run scored on a catcher's throwing error.

The Reds have a return date at Lennox on Monday at 6:30 p.m.
