Resorters league baseball: Cougars win, Bluedogs split
Four pitchers combined to throw a no-hitter for the Carlos Cougars in an 11-0 win over Ashby to open the Resorters season on April 29.
Mark Hillesheim, Matt Hoelscher, Ben Bruggeman and Joe Snaza worked together to keep the Ashby lineup off balance all night. Bruggeman struck out six in his two innings of work as the four combined to strike out 16.
Snaza led the offense with a home run on a day where he finished 2-for-3 with two runs scored and four RBIs. Bruggeman added two hits and two RBIs, while Neil Jenzen and Ryan Severson combined for three RBIs as well.
The Hoelscher brothers controlled the Brandon-Evansville lineup in a 2-0 Cougars win over the Bluedogs on Saturday.
Nate Hoelscher got the win after going the first five innings, allowing three hits, two walks and striking out five. Matt Hoelscher relieved him in the sixth and worked the final four innings. He allowed two hits and a walk, while striking out four.
The Cougars broke a scoreless tie with two runs in the fourth inning. Aaron Noetzelman had two hits and an RBI in the game and Justin Steidl and N. Hoelscher scored the two runs for Carlos.
Brandon-Evansville followed that loss to Carlos up by earning a split over the weekend with a 7-0 win against Detroit Lakes on Sunday.
The Bluedogs pounded out 13 hits and took advantage of several Detroit Lakes' errors in the game. Lee Nelson had a home run and three singles to lead the Bulldogs' attack.
Colin Modahl allowed just one hit through four innings of work on the mound. Matt Bruns (3IP), Aaron Lund (2IP) and Kyle Bruns (1IP) didn't allow a hit in relief over the final five frames.
