Eagles finish regular season strong

The Morris Eagles finished out the regular season strong with two wins, ending the regular season 11-4.

Morris 12, Madison 5

All nine starters had at least one hit and three pitchers combined for a five hitter as the Morris Eagles downed Madison 12-5 Wednesday night in Land O Ducks league baseball in Madison.

Tanner Picht led the 17 hit parade for the Eagles with four, including two doubles. He drove in two, and Craig Knochenmus had three hits and drove in two runs; he also had a couple doubles.

Kirby Marquart, Mitch Carbert, and Jacob Torgerson had two hits each. Marquart drove in three runs.

Sam Mattson started on the hill and allowed three hits and two runs in six innings. Mattson walked two and struck out 10 to pick up his team leading fifth win of the year. Knochemus pitched a third of an innings and Torgerson finished up, retiring all eight batters he faced.

Morris 6, Dumont 5

The Eagles clinched the No. 1 seed in the North with a win over the Dumont Saints in Morris. It wasn’t pretty, said team manager Eric Asche afterwards, but the Eagles escaped an ugly defensive performance of eight errors to beat the Saints 6-5 on Sunday, July 13.

Picht and Knockenmus led at the plate for a combined five hits with a double apiece with Picht scoring three times. Bryce Jergenson had three hits, and Torgerson and Marquart both had RBI singles in the win.

Nate Haseman started on the mound for the Eagles allowing four unearned runs on five hits. Nathan Gades finished up strong, getting the win in 3.2 innings pitching and allowing just one earned run while striking out four.

The Eagles finished the regular season 11-4 on the year and are set for post season play.
