June 12

Team Willey 12, Wea Eagles 11

Team Willey used two big innings to edge out the Wea Eagles 12-11. Team Willey scored five runs in the third and fourth innings and took a six-run lead into the bottom of the fourth.

No team can score more than five runs in an inning, so the game was called due to a run-rule.

Trevor Myers and Michael Foote had big games for the Eagles, who are sponsored by Alpha Mortgage. Myers and Foote each finished the game with three singles each.

Wyatt Guetterman, Keegan Rogers, Cooper Riley, Harry Krafft and Scott Wallace all had a pair of hits as well for the Eagles. Blaise Vohs provided some strong defense as he ran down a high fly ball at shortstop.

Wea Eagles 4, Team Swartz 3

The Eagles were down to their final out and trailed by a run against Team Swartz, but they got a big hit from Trevor Myers to put them over the top.

Myers hit a two-run double in the bottom of the fourth inning to score teammates Cooper Riley and Keegan Rogers as they rallied from what was a three-run deficit at one time.

Along with his double, Myers finished the game with three hits to lead the Eagles. Wyatt Guetterman, Rogers and Riley also added a pair of singles each.


June 3

Team Blancarte 13, Wea Eagles 12

Blancarte scored four runs in the bottom of the fourth inning to defeat the Eagles, 13-12.

Keegan Rogers led the Eagles’ bats with a four-hit game. Trevor Myers, Harry Krafft and Bobby Johnson each had three hits.

The Eagles held a 12-9 lead going into the bottom of the fourth inning, but Blancarte rallied to get the win.


June 1

Team Carlson 17, Wea Eagles 1

Bobby Johnson, Wyatt Guetterman and Blaise Vohs each had two hits for the Eagles against Team Carlson but it wasn’t enough in the 17-1 loss.

The Eagles trailed just 3-1 in the third inning, but Carlson scored five in the third, four in the fourth and five in the fifth to pull away.

Paola Orioles 6, Louisburg Fireballs (Team Crooks) 3

The Louisburg Fireballs took an early one run lead into the second inning, but Paola responded with two in the second, two in the third and runs in the fourth and fifth to get a 6-3 win.

The Fireballs got some good defense, however, from catcher Colin McManigal as he caught two pop ups, including a foul ball to help stop a scoring threat. Matthew Shields also picked up his first hit of the season.
