Peewee House League Season Wraps Up; Team Red Splits Double Header
Submitted By Trevor Russwurm on Thursday, September 10, 2020
The Mitchell Minor Baseball abbreviated Peewee House League season came to an end on Sept 9th after a 6-week / 8-game schedule for each of the three teams.  Team Red drew the double-header on the closing night, coming from behind to beat Team Green 9-7, and then falling 9-4 to Team Blue in the nightcap.

In the opening match, Team Green leadoff batter and starting pitcher Keegan Priestap was 3-for-3 with a double and 3 runs scored.  Jonah Gibbings reached base in all three at-bats scoring twice, while Wade Campbell chipped in with an RBI double.  For Team Red, Carson Harmer, Griffin Bree, Joel Meinen, and Max Hannon reached base in every at-bat, and Bree, Meinen, and Matthew Menheere each scored two runs.  Led by starter Meinen, Team Red pitchers combined for six strikeouts.
Jordan Visneskie opened the second game with a leadoff triple for Team Blue, and Hayden Nicholson swung the hot bat all game, going 3-for-3 for a pair of doubles, a run scored, and 4 RBI's.  In a well-balanced attack, each Team Blue player scored at least one run in the game.  Team Red bats were quiet for the first three innings, only managing one run scored on a Meinen RBI groundout.  A brief rally was staged in the last inning, as Ethan Jarmuth opened with a double, scoring on Charlie Geiger's RBI base hit.  Geiger and Carter O'Brien would also score before two strikeouts would squash the rally and end the game.
