After the long weekend in Humboldt, the Salem Cubs and Colman A’s wasted no time getting back on the field, playing each other last night in a game that was originally scheduled for June 9th but was rescheduled to last night due to weather.
Runs were difficult to get for both teams throughout the matchup, with Cubs getting the first run of the game in the top of the third. The A’s were able to bring in two runs of their own in the bottom of the fifth, which wound up being enough to top the Cubs.
No more runs were scored after the fifth inning, allowing Colman to hold onto the victory with a final score of 2-1, and get back to .500 with a 5-5 record in the Cornbelt league, while the Salem Cubs dropped to 3-6.
The Cubs had eight hits to the A’s seven, with Kyle Tuschen, Tyler Cleveland, and Jason Vonberge each getting two hits a piece for the Cubs. Lead-off batter, Cole Cheeseman, brought in the only run for the Cubs.
Corey and Carter Roach each got a hit for the Colman A’s, along with Deon Entringer, Ian Barker, Tim Kudhal, Colt Hawkins, and Adam Fritz getting a hit as well. Corey Roach and Entringer both had an RBI for Colman, and runs were scored by Corey Roach and Hawkins.
Kudhal gets the win for Colman, pitching seven innings for the A’s, striking out four batters while also walking one. Kudhal gave up seven hits and a run as well. On the mound for the Cubs, Issac Anderson pitched five innings, striking out three and walking one. Anderson also gave up seven hits and allowed two runs and two errors.
Both teams will be hosting teams from Humboldt-Hartford this Thursday, with the Colman A’s hosting the Humboldt-Hartford Gamecocks, and Salem Cubs home against the Humboldt-Hartford Wood Ducks.
