The Canova Gang came out hot to start their matchup with the Colman A’s last night, and the A’s just appeared to have no answers in a 13-0 rout. 

Lead-off batter for Canova, Riley Genzlinger, had a Single to start the game, and later in the inning brought in the first run off of Garrett Gassman’s RBI Double. Gassman had a sacrifice fly-out that brought in a run for Tim Gassman at the top of the third. 

Canova went two scoreless innings before Gassman got the top of the sixth started with a Home Run to deep right field, and from there the Gang lit up the scoreboard, scoring two more runs in the sixth. That was followed by four runs in the seventh, and three more runs to close out the game in the ninth. 

Colman struggled offensively, only registering three hits on the night and no runs. Colman’s batters struck out twelve times as well. 

Jason and Derek Miller each scored three runs for Canova, with Jason Miller getting a Double, walked once, and also getting on base due to an Error, and Derek Miller had three hits and two RBI’s along with his three runs. 

Gassman not only scored the Home Run for the Gang, but also led the team in RBI’s with three. Pitcher Trey Krier had two hits and two RBI’s for the Gang while also getting the win for Conava. 

The three batters for Colman to get hits were Corey Roach, Deon Entringer, and Adam Fritz. 

Canova moved up to 6-4 in league play this year, while Colman dropped below .500 to 4-5. 

Both teams will be playing in the Cornbelt v Sunshine Tournament this weekend in Humboldt, with Canova playing Winner/Colome at 8pm tonight. Colman will kick things off Sunday against Dimock/Emery at noon.
