With last Monday's game being cancelled, Blue Earth Area's baseball team only played two games.

The Bucs finished the week 1-1 winning their first game of the week and losing the second.

Going into the season, New Ulm was one of the teams the Bucs knew would be tough competition. And while they didn't get left completely in the dust, they did lose, 7-1.

The Eagles came out on top right away with 13 hits and scoring seven runs all within the first inning.

The Bucs tried to keep up, but only managed to get one run in the fourth inning, when Alex Stewart crossed home plate.

Alec Huber pitched four innings for the Bucs. He faced 25 batters, allowing two walks, 11 hits and 7 runs.

Alex Stewart also pitched for the Buccaneers, taking the mound for two innings. He pitched to eight batters, allowing two hits.

Quinn Huismann, while unable to score a run himself, was responsible for the one RBI of the game bringing teammate Stewart in for a run in the fourth. As a team, the Bucs had seven hits.

With one win and one loss this week, the Bucs overall record this season is at 3-2 and their conference record remains at 0-2.

The Buccaneers' next regularly scheduled game will be Thursday, April 24 at 5:30 p.m. against the Fairmont Cardinals in Blue Earth.


The Buccaneers took on the opposing New Richland Hartland Ellendale Geneva Panthers at the Winnebago field last Tuesday.

The baseball game ended with a very close score, but the maroon and gold came out on top with a final score of 6-5.

The Panthers scored the first two runs of the game in the top of the first inning, but the Buccaneers were quick to tie things up in the bottom, producing two runs of their own. Luke Schavey and David Franta crossed the plate for those runs.

The Panthers pulled ahead again in the third inning, scoring two more runs. The Bucs answered with another run, keeping the score close and ending the third inning, 4-3.

Continuing in the same pattern, NRHEG started the fourth inning with a run and the Bucs quickly caught back up with two more runs.

The bottom of the fourth inning brought in runs from Matthew Bell and Alec Huber which tied the game.

The tie didn't last long because the Buccaneers had the final say of the game and Alex Stewart brought in a run to pull ahead and win the game by one.

Bell took the mound for four innings allowing one NRHEG hit and two walks.

Bell also accounted for one BEA run from two turns at bat.

Quinn Huisman pitched the other three innings of the game. He allowed three hits, four runs and two walks. Huisman also struck out one runner.

Schavey took the plate three times for the maroon and gold accounting for two of the six runs scored. He had two hits and two RBI.

Stewart was three for four with three RBI. Franta also accounted for one of the six runs.

Jose Rios, while unable to cross the plate for a run himself, was one for one and also contributed an RBI.
