    Out & About

    Mitch Wurm was impressive

    on the mound against the Clip-pers. In seven and one-third in-

    nings, he held Watkins to two

    runs on four hits and a walk with

    seven strikeouts. With one out in

    the eighth, Jeremy Schmidt re-

    placed the tiring young right-han-

    der and held the Clippers to one

    base runner, on an error, to finish

    the game.

    Laker batting was on track as

    well. With 11 hits and few free

    passes, the Lakers looked like the

    team that earned themselves the

    North Star League champi-onship. The team had a three-run

    second inning when nine men

    came to the plate and a three-run

    sixth inning with eight batters ap-


    As is true with many teams,

    the Lakers thrive on getting the

    lead in a game. In the first inning,

    Graham Brown led off with a

    looper over the Watkins second

    baseman and stole second. Chad

    Raiche reached first base on an

    error, sending Brown to third. He

    then scored on Dusty Deckersinfield ground-out.

    In the second inning, with the

    score 1-0, Brian Redemske

    walked and Luke Fobbe singled

    to right field. Brown lined to right

    field to drive in Redemske. Tim

    Queck reached base on a bunt hit.

    As Brown and Queck went into

    motion for a double steal attempt,

    the Watkins catcher overthrew

    third and Brown scored. Raiche

    drove in Fobbe with a sacrifice

    fly to left field.

    In the sixth inning, with the

    score 5-2, eight batters came to

    the plate and accounted for three

    more runs. Decker drove in

    Brown for one run, but the big

    blow was Wurms two-run base

    hit to right field with bases


    Playing third base, Browns

    bat was on fire. The speedster

    was 4-4 with four runs scored

    and two RBI to lead Laker hit-

    ting. He led off the fourth inning

    with a rare triple and scored when

    Raiche grounded out for an RBI.

    Raiche, Dusty Decker and Wurm

    each had two RBI. Fobbe had

    three hits for the night.

    The Lakers scored their first

    four runs off starter Matt Geis-

    linger and continued the carnage

    with five runs off reliever Jeremy

    Hindirks, a draftee from Sacred

    Heart. Manager Bruce Geis-

    linger, the starters father, pitched

    the ninth for Watkins.
