New Richland Sweeps Bethlehem Academy in Fastpitch and Baseball
The New Richland-Hartland-Ellendale Geneva Panthers fastpitch and baseball teams defeated the Faribault Bethlehem Academy Cardinals Tuesday night. The Panthers baseball team blanked the Cardinals 10-0 in New Richland.
The New Richlahd-Hartland-Ellendale-Geneva fastpitch team showed those in attendance why they are the #5 ranked Class A team in Minnesota winning 10-4.
However the Cardinals have hung right with them. They lost in their season opener in New Richland by a run.
When I arrived at the ballpark it was 7-4 in the 6th inning. The game was tied at 3 after 3 innings.
Sophmore Kate Trump started in the pitching circle for Bethlehem Academy going the first 4 1/3 innings. When she stopped pitching and went to shortstop eighth grader Morgan Wilson came in to pitch.
In the bottom of the 5th BA 8th grader Anna Demars was safe on an error to start the inning. She stole second and stole third base then scored on a ground out. That would be the last score for the Cardinals.
With one out in the bottom of the third inning #9 batter Demars hit a single. During the next batter's trip to the plate Demars stole second base. With two outs Anna Cohen had a bunt single .
Trump hammered a double to score two runs and would score later on a fielder's choice.
Bethlehem Academy travels to United South Central Thursday for another Gopher Conference game.
