MV sweeps a WaMaC pair
June 14, 2013 · Crystal Eskelsen

The Mount Vernon baseball team earned doubleheader sweeps of both Vinton-Shellsburg and Anamosa last week. They also lost both games of a doubleheader with Clear Creek-Amana.

In the opening game against Vinton-Shellsburg both teams took awhile to get their offenses going; after three innings the score was still 0-0.

Mount Vernon took the lead in the fourth inning and didn't look back, finishing the game by scoring six runs in the seventh inning.

Mustang pitcher Adam Ketelsen earned the win, allowing just one Viking run while striking out four and walking three.

In the nightcap, Mount Vernon got their bats going early and scored three runs in the first and three again in the second. The Mustangs totaled 10 hits as a team including doubles by Trey Ryan and C.J. Eldred and a home run by Connor Welch.

The Mustangs earned the 11-4 win behind the pitching of Marquis Dew in the final four innings of the ball game.

Mount Vernon hosts Marion today (Thursday, June 13) in a varsity doubleheader. Monday the Mustangs host Maquoketa in a doubleheader.
