TMB advances, play Wednesday

The Panther baseball team stayed alive in the loser’s bracket with a 2-1 win over MACCRAY at Windom Tuesday night. The win improved Tracy/Milroy/Balaton’s season record to 15-8 and they will play Luverne Wednesday (June 1) at Milroy, game time is 5:00 P.M.. Luverne won over RCW Tuesday night by a score of 4-2.

The Panthers got on the board first when Erik Frisvold walked in the third inning, advanced to second on a passed ball and scored on an overthrow on Derek Radke’s ground ball. The Wolverines tied the game in the top of the sixth inning.

The Panthers came right back in the bottom of the sixth to get the go ahead run on a bases loaded walk to Derek Daniels. David Schmidt opened the sixth with a single and advanced to third when Radke’s ground ball was mishandled. Matt Bauer was intentionally walked to load the bases before Daniels worked a walk to score the winning run.

Sean Castle pitched the first five innings and gave up 1 unearned run on 4 hits while striking out 3 and walking 4. Bauer finished the game, and got the win, by pitching the last 2 innings giving up no runs and no hits while striking out 2 and walking 1.

The Panthers were held to only three hits, all singles and registered by Donald Strand (who broke the school record for stolen bases with a steal of second in the first inning), Schmidt and Castle.

Panther nine survives shaky start to advance in playoffs

Westbrook-Walnut Grove/Red Rock Central setback Panther baseball playoff with an opening round 4-3 win over Tracy/Milroy/Balaton Saturday.

The Panthers kept their hopes alive with a 4-2 victory over Jackson County Central in a second game Saturday.

Falcons 4, Panthers 3

The Falcons out-played the Panthers, repeatedly bunting the ball and forcing the Panthers to make plays TMB cooperated by committing six errors.

The Panthers took a two-run lead in the first inning and the Falcons coming back to score one run in the third and two runs in the sixth to tie the score and then take a one-run lead. The Panthers’ Sean Castle stole home with two out in the last of the seventh to send the game into extra innings, only to have the Falcons put up the winning run in the top of the eighth inning.

“You just cannot have as many mistakes as we did and expect to win,” said Panther Coach Bill Tauer. “Give them credit, they kept the ball on the ground and made us make plays. Offensively we just had too many fly ball outs. The kids hung in there till the end. We had a chance again in the bottom of the eighth but couldn’t get the timely hit.”

The Panthers out hit the Falcons 8-4 with Derek Radke and Derek Daniels leading the attack with 2 and 3 hits respectively. David Schmidt had a double and Sean Castle a triple after which he stole home to tie the game in the seventh inning.

Matt Bauer went all the way on the mound for TMB giving up 4 runs ( none earned) on 4 hits while striking out 6 and walking 3.

Panthers 4, Huskies 2

The Panther baseball team defeated Jackson County Central, the defending state champions, 10-5 in their second game Saturday.

“The boys came out with something to prove,” said Tauer. “We played with determination. Eliminating the defending state champions was a nice accomplishment for this team. If we can play with some consistency I believe we can go quite deep into this tournament yet.”

The Panthers scored five runs in the first inning, two more in the third, two more in the fourth and one in the sixth inning. They out hit the Huskies 13-6 and just played much better baseball than they had against W-WG/RRC.

Derek Radke pitched the whole game for TMB and gave up 5 runs on 6 hits while striking out 6 and walking 4. David Schmidt and Matt Bauer paced the 13 hit Panther attack with 3 hits each while Derek Daniels had 2.
