Wednesday, July 4, 2012

ALTA - Newell-Fonda jumped on Alta-Aurelia early, up 3-0 after two innings of play, but defensive errors coupled with too many walks allowed the Warriors to rally back for their 19th win in a 9-3 final.

Lange lasted just two innings, giving up three earned on two hits with four strikeouts and two walks. Austin Delp shined in relief, throwing five innings of two hit ball. He walked none and struck out eight.

At the plate, Jalen Henningsen led the way as he went 2-for-4 with a run scored, three stolen bases and three runs driven in. Jayson Van Haaften was 1-for-4 and drove in two, James Curbow stole three bases and scored twice, Zach Sliefert stole two bases and scored twice, and Ross Friedrich walked twice, stole two bases and scored a run.

Brady Dicks took the loss on the hill for the Mustangs, giving up eight runs, six earned, on three hits. He walked five and struck out one in 3 and 2/3rds innings. Dillon Anderson spelled in relief for 2 and 1/3rd innings and didn't allow a hit. He walked two and struck out one.

Brendan Kelly led the Newell-Fonda bats as he went 1-for-3 with a double and two runs driven in and one run scored. Rigo Johnson was 2-for-3 with a run scored, and Jake Hahn was 1-for-2 with a double and a run scored.

The Warriors now sit at 19-8 on the year and visit Spencer Thursday night. Newell-Fonda sits at 8-13 on the year and visits Pocahontas Area/Pomeroy-Palmer on Thursday.
