By Staff | Apr 17, 2016

Buccaneer pitcher Alan Davids hurls the ball towards the plate in the opening innings of the game against the New Ulm Eagles on last Tuesday.

It was a rough start to the season for the Blue Earth Area Buccaneer boys baseball team.

The BEA team fell 12-3 to the New Ulm Eagles in a game played this past Tuesday night on the Buccaneers home field in Blue Earth.

New Ulm scored four runs in the first inning, three in the second, one in the third, one in the fifth and one in the seventh.

The Buccaneers meanwhile, came up with one run in the second, one in the fifth and one in the sixth.

Scoring runs for the Bucs was Logan Jahnke, Kolt Gorg and Chris Sanders.

Sanders was 2 for 2 at the plate while Gorg was 2 for 3. Jahnke, Alan Davids, Matthew Meier and Cole Hendrickson all had one hit each, giving the Bucs a total of seven.

Davids pitched two innings for the Bucs, giving up seven runs on six hits. Zac Schonrock pitched three innings and gave up two runs on three hits. And Collin Bell pitched the final two innings and gave up three runs on two hits.

BEA played Worthington on Friday, after the deadline for this week’s Faribault County Register.

Next up for the Buccaneers is a game at St. Peter on Tuesday and then they host Fairmont Thursday.

BEA baseball and softball stumble into season

The Buccaneer softball team played against St. James last Thursday, and one player slide safely home to score a run. Results from that game will be in the next issue of the Register.

The Blue Earth Area softball team has officially kicked off their season, as they traveled to take on the New Ulm Eagles last Tuesday.

Although the Buccaneers started off with a loss for their first game, 10-0 in five innings, the first game was still a good game according to head coach Abby Bloomquist.

She says the loss is not because of a lack of skill.

“The promising aspect is that our loss came as a result of mental errors rather than skill deficiencies,” she says. “When we pull together mentally and become better at anticipating plays, we will find ourselves to be more successful.”

Bloomquist felt the team’s biggest issue during their first game was their third inning.

Adri Dulas pitched all five innings during the Buccaneers’ matchup against the New Ulm Eagles last week. She allowed five hits and three walks, but had two strikeouts.

“The overall score is misleading and definitely doesn’t reflect the talent of our team,” she says. “If you were to take away our third inning, where the wheels seemed to fall off, we would’ve ended with a 3-0 ball game.”

Adri Dulas pitched for the maroon and gold for all five innings of the game. She allowed five hits off 22 batters. She had two strike outs and three walks.

Grace Leland, Jalyssa Wilson and Angie Cyphers were all 1 for 3 at bat for the maroon and gold.

Jalyssa Wilson was also able to steal a base, as was Annaliese Klinkner during their time on the bases.

Caitlyn Holm and Sara LaRow were 1 for 2 at bat for the Bucs.

Also batting for the Bucs during the New Ulm match up included Makenzie Slette, Ryanne Klabunde and Adri Dulas.

“We are excited to have another crack at New Ulm later in the season,” Coach Bloomquist adds. “There’s no doubt we can compete with them and we are looking forward to facing them again once we regroup.”
