Parker Red blasts Canton

Parker Red 12U was able to blow away the Canton C-Hawks last week and did it with just eight players. The first inning was blow for blow for both teams. Parker took the lead early, as Brady Beyer reached bases on a HBP while Luke Travnicek singled, scoring Beyer. Jack Anderson advanced Travnicek but was thrown out, with Brock Frederickson up next, hammering a shot and scoring Travnicek. Frederickson also scored, being walked in with the inning ending with Parker up 3-0. Canton scored two runs in the bottom of the second, but three straight outs stopped the bleeding with the Pheasants still up 3-2.

Five runs scored in the second inning for Parker as Beyer, Travnicek. Anderson, Garrit Postma and Eli Anderson all scoring, pushing the lead to 8-2. Beyer went back to work on the mound, keeping the C-Hawks at bay with the Pheasants adding one more run in the third on a triple from Jack Anderson who was hit in from Frederickson. Canton did manage to add two more runs in the bottom of the fourth, pushing the score to 9-4, but another offensive blast from Beyer, Travnicek, Anderson, Frederickson, and Postma, pushed the lead to 14-4. 

The Pheasants posted 13 hits on the day, with Beyer striking out six batters over four innings.

“We played well tonight,” said assistant coach Ross Frederickson. “We got the bats going after a tough league tournament so that was nice to see, collecting 13 hits. Our defense was also solid, with several good plays on the infield.”

The win improved Parker to 9-2-1 on the season with one game remaining.
