Wolves roundup: Eagle River comes from behind to almost tie
It was the Dimond Lynx versus the Eagle River Wolves at Mulcahy Stadium Saturday afternoon for each team’s first league game of the high school baseball season. Dimond opened things up in the first inning, of the seven inning game, by scoring one run, followed by three quick successive outs. The Wolves answered with one run of their own during their first chance on offense, after Michael Rosenberg roped a double to left field, and then scored on double that RJ Dirscherl shot on his own to left field a moment later. The Lynx then gained momentum in the second inning and scored three more runs. Both sides were somewhat neutralized until the sixth inning when Dimond squeezed another run across the plate to bring the score to 5 - 1.
In the bottom of the sixth, however, Eagle River started making things interesting. RJ Dirscherl started the inning with a bunt single, and quickly stole second base. Collin Metzel then drew a walk. Both Wolves then took advantage of a couple of Lynx mishaps which led to Dirscherl scoring a run and left Metzel standing on third. Lauren Frost slapped a grounder to first base which allowed Metzel to score. After six innings the score rested at 5 - 3. Trent Talley, who took over pitching duties in relief for Cameron Fabacher in the sixth inning, kept the Lynx hitless in the top half of the seventh inning. Cameron Fabacher opened the last half of the final inning with a leadoff walk, and was eventually brought around to score on another single by Metzel. That was all the Wolves could muster though, and they were defeated by a final score of 5 - 4.
