Hermantown 9, A's 7

After defeating Hermantown 5-4 on Friday night, the A's couldn't do it again Saturday.

Hermantown scored four in the fourth to take a 7-4 lead and scored two more in the sixth after the A's cut the deficit to 7-6.

Jerry Fletcher and Jack Eustice each went 2-for-2 with a double and two runs scored to lead the A's offense.

"This was a disappointing game for our guys," coach Todd Stellmaker said. "We had no competitive edge, no will to find a way and want to win. We have to show up each game and want to compete to win instead of just showing up and playing a baseball game."

A's 18, Bloomington 0 (4)

The A's bounced back from the loss to Hermantown in dominating fashion, smashing 23 hits and combining for a no-hitter.

They will now play Chatfield for fifth place at the Firecracker Tournament.

Overall, the A's (7-5-1) finished with six extra base hits, while Peyton Milene, Blake Baudoin and Eustice combined to deliver four hitless innings.

"Our bats absolutely came alive," Stellmaker said. "I've been a part of games this lobsided over the years on both sides and a lot of the times it's due to one team walking too many guys or making too many errors. But Bloomington Gold's pitchers threw strikes and they only made one error in the field. We just flat out hit the ball like crazy.

"As a whole we did a great job not being over anxious and being disciplined hitters and hitting the ball where it's pitched. We had hits to all areas of the field."

Eustice finished 3-for-4 and is now 8-for-10 through three games this weekend. He was one six A's (Josh Fletcher, Jerry Fletch, Cole Rocholl, Sam Johnston and Matt Haun) to finish with three or more hits.

Our newsroom occasionally reports stories under a byline of "staff." Often, the "staff" byline is used when rewriting basic news briefs that originate from official sources, such as a city press release about a road closure, and which require little or no reporting. At times, this byline is used when a news story includes numerous authors or when the story is formed by aggregating previously reported news from various sources. If outside sources are used, it is noted within the story.
