Saints report: CSS baseball stumbled twice – Reuters

ST. PAUL — Two St. Scholastica baseball comeback attempts failed in a Minnesota Intercollegiate Athletic Conference doubleheader against St. Mary’s played at Northwestern University on Sunday.

The Saints only recovered halfway down 6-0 in a 6-3 loss in game one, then lost game two 8-7 after leading 7-2 at one point.

In Game 1, Jake Schelonka broke the CSS offense seal with a solo homer late in the sixth inning and was followed by an RBI double from Cody Venske, who scored on an RBI groundout from Zach Harding . However, St. Mary’s came out of the inning and retired the Saints in order in the seventh and final inning for the win.

Schelonka and Luke Schemenauer had two hits apiece for CSS, while Dallas Miller allowed six earned runs on five hits in five innings and took the loss.

In Game 2, a contest of nine innings, two walks, two wild pitches and three straight hits sparked the CSS offense in the bottom of the eighth. Mitchell Olson’s two-point brace was the biggest blow and put the Saints close at 7-6. CSS had the runs tied and green lighted on the base, but couldn’t add to its total.

Trevon VanEgtern made it 8-6 at St. Mary’s with a one-out solo shot in the top of the inning, which provided enough cushion, but barely. CSS loaded the basics with no one on a hit per throw, a single, and a hit. Matt Tautges drove in a run with a sacrifice fly, but the Saints failed to get a hit in the tying run.

Tautges went 3 for 4 with a triple to go with his sacrificed fly. Olson had two hits and Jack Tiemann had two hits and three RBIs.

Grant Taival allowed seven runs (six earned) on nine hits in 5 1/3 innings and took the loss.

CSS (5-9, 0-2 MIAC) is set to host Bethel in an MIAC doubleheader on Wednesday at Wade Stadium in Duluth.

Saints Arrested by Saint Benedict

St. Scholastica softball was limited to a single solo homer from Olivia Howe in a 7-1 MIAC softball loss at St. Benedict on Sunday at St. Joseph. The second match of the scheduled doubleheader has been postponed.

Howe also doubled and finished with half of St. Scholastica’s six hits.

The Bennies retired with four runs in the sixth to extend their lead to 6-1.

Haley Rosenthal took the loss, giving up seven runs, six of which were earned, on nine hits. She pulled out two and walked three.

The Saints (9-8, 1-2 MIAC) play a league doubleheader at Concordia-Moorhead on Thursday.
