Cyclones strike down two more

Friday, June 22, 2007

onday in Alta and beat Schaller-Crestland 10-1 the next night in Early.

With the wins the Cyclones improved to 9-7 overall and 6-1 in the Northwest Conference, giving them a share of first place in the league standings. Only Sioux Central (7-1) owned a better winning percentage.

Jessy Bibler picked up the pitching win against Aurelia.

At the plate, Bibler went 4-for-4 with two RBIs, Kelsie Peterson was 1-for-4 with a two-run homer and Toshia Jones went 3-for-4 with a pair of ribbies.

The Cyclones out-hit the Bulldogs 15-8 and made only one error while Aurelia, which fell to 3-8 (1-6 NWC), made four.

Alta used a five-run third and a four-run sixth to get past the Bulldogs.

Emily Rohlk took the loss for Aurelia, with 11 runs (five earned), 15 hits, no walks and eight strikeouts in six frames.

"Routine plays let us down. Two dropped third strikes and some miscommunication on easy fly balls played a big part in this game," said Aurelia coach Jason Heeren. "I'm not going to say we would have won the game because of it but the atmosphere of the game is different. We were solid offensively. We are hitting the ball well. We need the defense to step up and give us a chance to win ball games."

Against S-C Tuesday, Bibler recorded another win, tossing seven innings of five-hit ball with one earned run, no walks and 12 strikeouts.

Haley Payne went 3-for-4 at the plate with four runs and two stolen bases, and Jordan Henningsen was 2-for-5 with a run and two stolen bases. Peterson had a hit, two RBIs and two runs.
