Dons’ baseball season at an end
By Ken Thoma

Don Bosco baseball state playoff action started with first inning concerns as Dunkerton scored first and had the bases loaded with only one out before the Dons put in a new pitcher on July 11. Even then it was another run for the Raiders due to a walk before the new pitcher, Lewis Havel, would settle in and get the final two outs with a pop-up to shortstop and a ground-out short to first.

After a strikeout, the Dons would load the bases and get one run back with a bases loaded walk only to have a hard hit ball that was caught by the Dunkerton first baseman who made a great double play to keep their lead of 2-1 at the end of the first inning.

Both pitchers then settled down in the 2nd inning, and the start of the 3rd. But the high powered scoring Dons then put 8 batters to the plate in their half of the 3rd inning while scoring 4 runs. They would add a run in the 4th and 3 more in the 5th.

With the Dons leading the game 9-2, Havel was then replaced by the Dons’ ace, Trever Brown, for the 6th inning who got 2 strikeouts and a ground out while giving up only a walk in that inning. The Dons would then close out the game with a big 6th inning for themselves as they scored 3 runs when #16, Austin Miller, would get a long hit to right field to drive in a run which was followed by the 7th Dunkerton error of the night and then a double by Bryce Schares would score 2 more runs to end the game under the 10 run rule.
For the record, Havel only pitched to 15 batters in his 4-2/3 innings, giving up one walk and one hit that was wiped out with a sparkling double play in the 4th inning.
