Teeners drop games to Gettysburg, Selby
By Jay Davis
The sticks couldn’t get anything going as the Mobridge Teeners dropped a 15-0, 19-1 doubleheader to Gettysburg in Gettysburg on Monday.
The Teeners never got anything going as Killian Warner’s single in the first game was the only hit Mobridge recorded. Killian walked and scored the only Teener run of the night in game two.
“We weren’t striking out a lot,” said coach Ryan Hoffman. “We were putting the ball in play. But we were hitting it at them and they were making plays.”
Gettysburg scored four runs in the first inning, two in the second and six in the third to secure the game one win. An eight-run first inning started the downhill spiral for Mobridge in the second game.
Mobridge did not fare much better at home on Wednesday, losing 13-3 and 16-1 to Selby.
“We played pretty well the first game, but made a couple costly mistakes,” said Hoffman.
A seven-run second inning set up Selby’s first win. Game two was close early before Selby exploded for eight runs in the third inning.
Warner led Mobridge with two hits and a run in the opener. Skyler Meyer turned a pair of walks into two runs. Tristan Flying Horse added a single. Kaden Van Vugt drew a walk and scored the Teener’s only run in the nightcap.
Selby coaching did not supply last names in the scorebook for their players so a detailed account of the visitor’s offense cannot be recorded.
Mobridge will have some much needed time off to work on the their game as they do not take the field again until heading to Northville for a doubleheader on June 25.
