3-2 weekend for Summer Bullpups

By Steve Sell
June 18, 2018

OMAHA, Neb. — It was a winning weekend for the McPherson Summer Bullpups, who concluded play in the Battle of Omaha with a 3-2 record.

“We finished with a winning record, which is good,” McPherson coach Matt McCasland said. “We had a good shot at winning the Edwardsville game, but unfortunately the offense just never broke out. Hats off to our pitchers this weekend. We had to use multiple arms in each game to get us through the weekend, so some of our guys had 2-3 outings over the weekend. We scored a lot of runs this weekend. We also gave away a lot of free runs. We took a step in the right direction this weekend after losing four straight coming into this tournament.”

The weekend leveled the Bullpups’ record at 6-6 and they have another busy weekend coming up with the Bob Hooper Classic at Grant Complex and Bulldog Park. The action begins on Friday.

• Climber Baseball 13, Bullpups 1 — The Climbers did all their damage in the first three innings, with the game ending after four. Spencer Whitfield drove in Zane Myers with the only run.

• Bullpups 18, Norris 1 — Nine runs in the first and eight in the fourth led to the easy win. Myers, Shane Starkel and Whitfield all collected two hits and Whitfield drove in three runs. Starkel, Myers and Garrett Farney all drove in two runs. Three pitchers worked the five innings.

• Edwardsville 8, Bullpups 3 — The team from Illinois put the game on ice with three runs in the sixth. Jakob Feil had a huge game by going 3 for 4 with two runs scored. Chandler Wiard took the loss despite allowing just two earned runs.

• Bullpups 12, Bryan, Neb. 3 — The ‘Pups exploded for five runs in the first and six in the second and used four pitchers to keep Bryan in check. Whitfield was immense by going 3 for 3 with three runs scored. Myers had two hits and two RBIs, and Dylan Rinker drove in two runs.

• Bullpups 17, Northeast Nebraska 9 — It was tight until the fifth when the Bullpups unleashed a 10-run avalanche. Jakob Feil was 4 for 5 with two RBIs, while Wiard was 4 for 4. Farney was 3 for 4 with three RBIs. Rinker and Brayden Stanford drove in three runs and Whitfield added two RBIs. Three pitchers shared the load.

Typical rehabilitation improvements include windows, siding, air conditioning, heating and roof replacement.

The designated target area for the project is defined as “an area bound by 1st Street on the south, west to Main Street, north on Main Street to Hulse Street, then east on Hulse Street to Wheeler Street; south on Wheeler Street including both sides of the street, south to Loomis Street, then east on Loomis street, including both sides of the street, to the alley between Barber Street and Myers Street, then south in the alley to the southern border at 1st Street.”
