Gladstone Tops Bark River To Win Soo Tournament

SAULT STE. MARIE---The Gladstone Indians and Bark River Bucs represented Delta County well at the Sault Ste. Marie American Legion Baseball Tournament this weekend.

The two local teams both advanced to the championship game before Gladstone won the trophy on the mercy rule, 13-0, at James Field.

This happened after Bark River upset the EUP Travelers Class AA team, 4-3, in the first semifinal, before Gladstone held on to beat Marquette, 3-2, in the other semi.

The Bucs won when Duner Englund ripped a two-run homer in the top of the seventh inning, and then retired the Travelers in the bottom of the inning.

Then the Indians grabbed a 3-0 lead as Marquette made several errors and had a hard time hitting Gladstone pitcher Ben Kelly. Kelly had beat Marquette, 1-0, two weeks ago at the Gregg Johnson Memorial Tournament in Gladstone, and he had another shutout going until the Blues managed to score twice in the sixth inning.

In the championship game, Bark River simply ran out of pitching.

Nick Javurek got the ball and the Indians pounded him for seven early runs. Matt Richer came in for a bit, but he couldn't get outs, so Javurek came back in to pitch. Adam Cappaert even got some mound time for the Bucs.

Tyson Seymour and Jared Crow each had triples for Gladstone, and Crow earned the pitching victory. The Indians improve to 15-4 on the season. Bark River is 9-6.

The two teams will play each other again this Tuesday, in Bark River. Game time is 5:00. It will be broadcast live on WCHT-AM (NewsTalk 600) and

Escanaba, meanwhile, lost all four of its games, and fell to 1-14 on the season. The  Cubs have a home game scheduled Tuesday night against Niagara, Wis.


--The Gladstone Indians beat the Sault Ste. Marie 'Class A' team for the second time in as many days, this time, 8-0. Tyson Seymour pitched all five innings for the shutout win. Cody Frappier and Braeden Lamberg both hit two-run homers and Jared Crow executed an RBI squeeze bunt. Earlier in the day, the Indians beat the Iron Mountain Golds, 12-1.

BUCS SNEAK OUT TWO WINS---The Bark River Bucs beat the Iron Mountain Golds at the Sault Ste. Marie 'Class A' team by identical 7-5 scores. Mason Korhonen pitched the Bucs to the win over the Sault, and Sam Hall was the winning pitcher against Iron Mountain. Duner Englund hit a home run for the Bucs.

GLADSTONE 14,  SAULT STE. MARIE CLASS A 2---The Indians won their second game of the day with an easy win over the Soo in a game played with wooden bats on a smaller field. Braeden Lamberg, Dan Martin, and Tyson Seymour all hit home runs for Gladstone, and Jared Crow had a two-run single. Jake Rogers earned the pitching win.

BARK RIVER 14, IRON MOUNTAIN 1---The Bucs bounced back from the earlier loss with an easy win over the Golds. Matt Richer and Sam Hall combined to pitch a no-hitter, and Zach Englund clubbed a three-run homer for Bark River.
