Parker 9-10 off to hot start at 3-0

The Parker 9 and 10-year-old baseball team has gotten off to a hot start this season, winning their first three games in league play.

In their first game of the season, Parker faced off against Tea Javers. The Pheasants jumped ahead early when Korbyn Leveille singled scoring Carter Berens. That put Parker up 1-0. Another score in the second by Emmitt Rowe had Parker up 2-0, and a big offensive third inning saw the Pheasants run off five runs, thanks to RBI’s from Caleb Christensen, Carson Hively, Liam Masters, Rowe and Hudson L all pushing runs across.

Tea then tried to rally in the fourth, but it was too little too late as Parker held on for a 7-5 victory. 

Leveille started on the mound for Parker, allowing zero hits and zero runs. Berens and Christensen also entered in relief.

Logan Gillespie, Miles Even and Leveille all collected one hit to lead the team.

In their second game of the season, the Pheasants played host to Tea Willemssen.

Parker used steady scoring in each inning to take the win. In the first inning Miles Even doubled on a 2-2 count, scoring one run and making it 2-0 in favor of Parker. The defense held, thanks to the pitching of Leveille who went three and a third inning allowing one run and striking out eight.

Even, Berens, Leveille and Franklin Griffith each collected a hit on the night helping Parker to a 6-1 victory.

In their third game of the season, Parker hosted Lennox Reilly, coming away with a hard fought 6-5 win.

Lennox jumped ahead early in the first, pulling ahead 4-0. Carter Berens was first to bat for Parker, hammering a home run shot to the fence to pull Parker back within three.

The Pheasants allowed just one more run in the next inning, while scoring five, Hively, Bostyn Knutson, Logan Gillespie, Landon Even and Lawson Latterell all scored pushing Parker ahead 6-5 and were able to hold on in the final frame for an impressive win and improve to 3-0 on the season.

“Our pitching is coming on and we really want to see the bats come alive,” said head coach Max Masters.

Parker plays Tea Klein Monday, June 7 and Wednesday, June 9.
