Panthers revel in 212 title

Tracy/Milroy/Balaton won the 212 Conference baseball championship with a 9-5 win over KMS at Tracy last Friday by a score of 9-5. The victory closed out their conference schedule with 10-4 record. The conference baseball title was TMB’s first since 2001.

“The ACGC Falcons lost a couple of games last week to open the door for us,” said Panther Coach Bill Tauer. “The kids went out and opened up a 5-0 lead on KMS in the first two innings. An early lead always helps.”

David Schmidt led the 9 hit Panther attack with a pair of hits. Other hits were recorded by Donald Strand, Derek Radke, Matt Bauer, Derek Daniels, Paul Carlson, Brett Jackson and Andy Nelson.

Derek Radke went all seven innings on the mound for T/M/B and held KMS to 5 runs ( 2 earned) on 8 hits while striking out 4 and walking two.

“Our first goal for this season was to win the conference in its final season,” said Tauer. “Now we hope to do well in the playoffs.”

Panthers fall to Marshall

The Marshall Tigers won over Tracy/Milroy/Balaton at Milroy Tuesday night by a score of 10-1 to finish the regular season for both teams. The Panthers won 13 games and lost 7 and will meet W-WG/RRC in the playoffs this Saturday at Milroy at 10:00 A.M.

“I was a little bit disappointed in our hitting tonight,” said Panther Coach Bill Tauer. “The positive part of it is that we faced a good team with some good, solid pitching and that will help to prepare us for the playoffs.”

Matt Bauer doubled in the fourth inning for the only Panther hit of the game.

Softball team bows out of playoffs

The Panther girls’ softball team was eliminated from the Section 3AA South Tournament in Pipestone Tuesday by BOLD by a score of 9-4. The first round of the tournament was single elimination so the Panther’s season is over. Tracy/Milroy/Balaton won 8 games, lost 9 and tied 1 and was the third seed in the tournament.

BOLD made life miserable for us with the bunt” said Panther Coach Dave Sogge. “They had quite a few baserunners, and when they bunted, we kind of threw the ball around. We weren’t always able to make the plays we needed to. And Seims was tough. We are as good a hitting club as there is around and she shut us down. She threw strikes and she threw hard. We average three K’s a game and she had nine.”

The Panthers started off well by scoring 2 runs in the bottom of the first inning to take a 2-0 lead. However BOLD came back with 4 runs in the second inning to go up 4-2. T/M/B tied the score with 2 runs in the fourth but BOLD’s run in the fifth and 4 more in the sixth clinched the win for the Lady Warriors.

Ashlei Carpenter led the 6 hit Panther offense with a double and run batted in, she also pitched the whole 7 innings giving up 9 runs (8 earned) on only 4 hits while striking out 6, walking 5 and hitting 4 batters.
