Delano A’s game at Maple Plain Monday postponed

Mother Nature washed away Delano’s scheduled game at Maple Plain Monday night. That game will be made up Thursday night at Maple Plain.

Also, Delano is making up its previously postponed home game against Maple Lake Tuesday night at Dave Zitzloff Field in Delano.

Both games are at 6:30 PM.

A’s at Dassel-Cokato Friday night

It’s looking like the weather will give us a break and the Delano A’s will have a great night for baseball Friday night at a great ballpark, and to top it all off, with great food.

No need to make dinner tomorrow night as Dassel will be having its annual pork chop feed during their 4:30pm legion game, and running through the first few innings of the Athletics/Saints game.  The money made will go to the Legion Post 209 Baseball team.  They do good work out in Dassel and have some great baseball people, so come hungry.
Upcoming Games for the Athletics:
Friday, July 12 – 7:30pm at Dassel
Saturday, July 13 – 4:00pm at Watertown
Monday, July 15 – 6:30pm at Maple Plain

Larks top Stingers as visitors at home


Sports Editor

LORETTO ­— Loretto played as the visiting team at Arnold Klaers Field Wednesday, when Montrose came to town.

The Larks took the road win 9-3 over the Stingers, who booted the ball around to the tune of five errors (at least).

Loretto took control with three runs in the top of the first inning off Montrose veteran Robb Moynagh.

The Larks added two runs in the fourth, one in the fifth and three in the seventh off Moynagh and two relievers.

Montrose scored one run in the bottom of the first inning off Larks’ starter Keenan Hodgkin and two in the eighth off reliever J.J. Strumbel.

Hodgkin struck out eight batters in 5 1/3 innings to earn the win. He gave up the one earned run on six hits.

Strumbel gave up two runs (one earned) in 2 1/3 innings of relief. Mark Ricke finished the final inning-and-a-third innings.

Moynagh took the loss for Montrose after giving up six earned runs on five hits and two walks in four innings.

Loretto finished with 15 hits.

Kent Koch and Eric Schutte both had three hits for the Larks. Nathan Maher had two hits.

Hodgkin gave himself the early lead to pitch with when he doubled home Tyler Maher and Koch with two outs in the bottom of the first inning. Hodgkin then scored on Schutte’s single to make it 3-0.

In the fourth inning, the Larks used a double steal to plate the first run. Kent Koch took second base, and, on an error on the throw by the catcher, Nathan Maher trotted home. Schutte came through again, singling home Koch to make it a 5-1 game.

In Loretto’s three-run seventh inning, an error on a ball put in play by Hunter Petron allowed Drew Van Dehey to score; Koch sacrifice fly scored Bradley Koskie; and Nathan Maher scored on a wild pitch tossed by reliever Jeff Keavy.

Loretto moved to 7-11 with the win.

The Larks go to Litchfield Friday night and host Maple Lake Sunday.

Next week, Loretto hosts three games. Montrose returns to Arnold Klaers Field Wednesday night; Maple Plain visits Friday, July 19; and Cokato visits Sunday, July 21, in the regular-season finale.
