RIVALRY BATTLE: Indians Cruise Past Escanaba

ESCANABA---The Gladstone Indians did the little things right Thursday night and posted an easy 7-1 win over the Escanaba Cubs in Upper Peninsula u19 Baseball League game.

The junior game was won by Escanaba, 10-4.

In the senior game, Drake Forrest handcuffed the Cubs on two hits over five innings. He struck out six batters and walked only two. Forrest got into trouble only once: in the second inning, when he walked two batters and gave up a bad-hop single to Jake Anderson.

Forrest struck out Brett Schlenvogt to end that inning. The only other hit he allowed was a one-out single to Nick Kolich in the third inning.

Meanwhile, Escanaba pitcher Hunter Lancour worked in and out of trouble He walked seven batters before leaving with arm problems one out into the fifth inning.

Gladstone took a 2-0 lead in the first inning when Zach Hanson singled, Dan Martin drew a one-out walk, and Dayton Bernson lifted sacrafice fly. Parker Frappier followed with an RBI double to make it 2-0.

In the fourth inning, Bernson and Frappier delivered RBI again with Bernson brining home Hanson with a grounder and Frappier singling home Martin again.

Martin scored three of Gladstone's runs after walking twice and being hit by a pitch. He also stole home while the Cubs tried to get Ian Schwalbach on a pick-off attempt at second base.

Noah Lancour relieved Hunter Lancour on the mound for Escanaba in the fifth inning and he allowed two runs in the sixth inning. Bernson and Frappier both had hits in that inning.

Escanaba's only run came in the bottom of the sixth inning after Frappier relieved Forrest on the mound. Collin Arnt led off with a double and scored on a single by Riley Lamb.

It was a flat performance for the Cubs, after Escanaba upset Menominee the night before, 8-2. The Indians, meanwhile, continued to play consistent ball, following up Wednesday night's 6-0 win over Iron Mountain with Thursday's rivalry victory.

Escanaba and Gladstone will meet again in Gladstone on Tuesday at 7:00. The game will be broadcast on WCHT-AM (NewsTalk 600) and on-line at www.rrnsports.com.

JUNIOR GAME: ESCANABA 10 GLADSTONE 4---In the junior game, it was a pitcher's dual into the fifth inning between Escanaba's Trent Lawson and Gladstone's Aeden Creten.

The J-Cubs scored two runs in the first inning and the Junior Indians were held off the board until the fourth inning, when Nick Martin led off with a double and was squeezed home by Creten.

In the sixth inning, Escanaba scored five runs against reliever Tyler Darmogray. Jack McEvers drove in two of the runs with a single. Willette and Jarret Olson added sacrafice flies.
