On Tuesday, June 13th, the BerMis junior and senior legion baseball teams traveled to Overton to play. Only one certified umpire was there, so both teams officially won by forfeit 7-0.
The games were played anyway and the juniors were outscored 5-8. The seniors came up on the short end of an 8-9 score.
In the juniors’ game, BerMis scored in the top of the first when leadoff batter Brian Hemmele was hit by a pitch and moved around to third when the next two batters grounded out. Isaac Dunn then hit an RBI single, scoring Hemmele before Dylan Boggs struck out to end the inning.
Another BerMis run came across in the second when Andrew Dennis reached on an error. He scored as Justus Harvey walked and Hank Green grounded out before Hemmele popped up to short to end the inning.
BerMis scored two when pitcher Spencer Rice reached on an error to lead off the third and advanced on a single by Ike Wahls. Both crossed the plate as Dunn flew out to left and Boggs struck out before Aden Matejka reached on an error and Dennis grounded out to short to end the inning.
The final BerMis run came in the fifth when Rice tripled to lead off. He scored as Wahls flied out and Dunn struck out. Boggs was hit by a pitch, but died at second as Matejka gounded out to first to end the inning.
The seniors scored one in the second and seven in the third for their total.
Hemmele was hit by a pitch to start the inning and came around to score on a single by Chandler Wagner, a strikeout by Riley Johnson and a walk by Rice before Drew Lauby popped up to second, Grant Dahlgren was hit by a pitch and Ashton Wasenius struck out to end the frame.
After A. J. Matejka struck out to start the third, the big rally started with consecutive walks to Seth Beisner, Hemmele and Wagner, followed by back-to-back singles by Johnson and Rice. Hemmele was put out, but the other four scored. Lauby and Dahlgren drew walks and Wasenius was hit by a pitch and all three scored when Matejka reached on a shortstop error. He stole second, but was thrown out at third to end the inning.
BerMis’ only other hit was a single by Lauby in the fifth.
