MOS Earn Split in Double-Header

2 06 2011

Pitcher Richard LaTour bringing the High Heat

The Men of Stone Softball team split a double-header on Tuesday night at “House Field” in Dousman.
In the first game, White Stone met up with undefeated Divine Redeemer Beacons. The men from White Stone played a very good game–especially at the plate where they scored a season high 19 runs in a 19-9 victory. Some of the standouts for the MOS were Richard LaTour–sporting his brand new softball cleats, Richard pitched a fine game and also played good defense. Some of the batting leaders where Michael Javornik (3-3, 4 RBI, HR), Tigh Kemnitz (3-3, 2 RBI), & Josh Watson (3-3, 3 RS, 2 RBI, HR). Terry Andrus also was a solid contributor with a 2-2 night, scoring 2 runs and also collecting a walk.
The first five batters in the order collected a homerun in the hitter-friendly confines of “House Field”…Adam Andrus, Doug Harper, Josh Watson, Jake Andrus, and Michael Javornik all went deep.

Game 2 was against St Catherine’s, and the Men of Stone lost in extra innings by a score of 14-15. The MOS had plenty of opportunities to win the game, but a few mental errors proved to be too much. In the bottom of the final inning White Stone was down by a run and they actually ended the game with a 2-run homerun by Jake Andrus…unfortunately, it counted as the 3rd out, as it was their 6th homer of the game, and there was a “5 Homerun limit.” It was a tough pill to swallow for the guys. The 5 homeruns were hit by Josh Watson, Ed Schmit, Robert Murphy, and Jake Andrus (2). The RBI leaders for the game were Josh Watson (3) and Jake Andrus (4).
