CF Legion beats Randolph 4-2

by Mike Dalton

The Cannon Falls American Legion baseball team beat Randolph for the second time this season, 4-2 in a game played Thursday night. The locals dropped a game to Jordan Monday.

Noah Callister gave up two runs in the 1st inning, then didn't allow a hit the rest of the way in picking up the pitching win. He struck out 14. Nathan Overby took the loss.

Randolph's only runs came on a one-out double by Drew Weidner. He scored on a double by Max Stoesz, who scored on an error.

Tanner Jackson drove in Callister for Cannon's first run in the 2nd, and a double by Hunter Blakeslee scored Austin Jacobs in the 3rd. Two insurance runs scored in the 6th on a couple of singles and a passed ball on a strikeout.

"Our pitching continues to hold opponents down," coach Bob Brintnall said. "Overby did a nice job for them; he kept us off-balance. Callister is such a work-horse. He can really be tough to hit.

"Randolph has played very well both times we've played them, and they made some nice defensive plays to keep us from scoring. Jacobs had a great play in the 7th, making a diving catch to steal an extra base hit."

Cannon suffered its first loss in the game against Jordan. Both teams were 4-0, and Jordan escaped with a 3-2 win.

Jacobs went the first four innings, giving up two runs and striking out two. Taylor Carlson took the loss, giving up a run in the bottom of the 7th.

Jordan had three hits and drew three walks in the 1st inning, but could only scare up two runs. A Tyler Wilson-to-Paul Rolfes-to-Peter Haggerty play cut a runner down at the plate.

Cannon scored twice in the 6th, following a single by Brock Peterson, a double by Blakeslee and a single by Callister.

The winning run was unearned. After a leadoff walk, a throwing error on a sacrifice bunt moved a runner to 3rd, and he scored on a single.

"All three of their runs came after walks; that very uncharacteristic of us," Brintnall said. "After the 4th inning we started hitting the ball much sharper. Haggerty has been a bright spot over the past couple of games; he's a tough out. Peterson was 3-4, and Callister's hit in the 6th was nice to see; we've stranded a lot of runners."

The squad is home Thursday against Kenyon-Wanamingo. The team makes its annual trek through Wisconsin this weekend, then returns home to host Pine Island on Monday, June 24.
