Lions win seven straight this week
June 14, 2013 · Crystal Eskelsen


The Lisbon baseball team scored an average of just over 10 runs a game last week, helped by a 15-run effort and a 19-run game.

The Lion offense helped Lisbon to a 5-0 week with everything from a sound beating of HLV 19-0, to sneaking out a 3-1 win over West Branch.

The week started with a 15-5 win over Highland. The Lions scored runs in every inning except for the fourth, totalling 12 hits in six innings. Colton Krob and Hunter Caspers both hit doubles and Keegan Tritle hit a home run.

The Lions also earned a shut-out win over North Linn, 9-0. Tritle pitched the shutout, going seven innings and giving up just two hits.

Lisbon also earned a 5-2 win over Danville this week. The Lions scored two runs in the second inning when Austin Springsteen doubled up the middle and brought Ryan Kortemeyer and Ryan Light home.

Lisbon added three more runs in the fifth to earn the 5-2 win. Connor Woodward was credited with two RBI when he singled to right center and Ryan Schrantz and Springsteen scored.

The Lions are at Calamus-Wheatland today (Thursday, June 13). They are at a tournament in Mason City Saturday. Monday, Lisbon hosts Camanche in a varsity doubleheader.
