Parker 10U Blue outguns Centerville

Shane Merrill |  Writer

Coming of the state tournament with players from both teams combining, the Parker 10U Blue team returned together last Wednesday night, facing off against Centerville. Parker continued their hot streak, topping the Tornadoes 16-5 in the contest.

Starting on the mound was Teegun Wentzel on the night. The first batter was walked, but a line drive to first baseman Rush Bleynberg allowed for the first out, with Bleynberg turning a double play for the second out. The third out was a grounder to second baseman Owen Travnicek, getting Parker out of the inning with no damage. The bats were swinging on the night, with Parker totaling 16 hits compared to two for Centerville. Parker put up five runs in the first inning, taking a quick 5-0 lead. Two errors in the second allowed the Tornadoes right back into the contest, with Parker allowing five runs, with things tied 5-5. Parker put up another four runs in the bottom of the inning, and Luke Travnicek entered to pitch, shutting down any offensive threat and pushing Parker back up to bat. Parker put up another four runs in the third and three runs in the fourth, pushing past the visitors for a 16-5 win. 

Leading Parker on the mound was Travnicek going two innings with zero hits and six strike outs. 

Offensively, Bleyenberg led with four hits and four RBIs. Luke Travnicek also had four RBi’s while Marquice Bortnem had three. 

“Fun to get back together after the state tournament,” said head Blue coach Shane Merrill. “Wasn’t sure how everyone would respond with some not playing for a couple weeks, but everyone was ready to go. These guys want these last two so will be fun to see how we can finish.”

Parker Blue now sits at 10-0 on the season with two league games remaining, The Pheasants need to win one of the last two to clinch the league championship. Parker plays Lennox Dressen at home on Monday night and travels to Tea Schram on Thursday for the final game of the season.
