Marshfield Chaparrals baseball holds off Plover

PLOVER – The Marshfield Chaparrals used some early offense, capitalized on some shaky defense and registered their first error-free game of the season in downing the Plover Pterodactyls 8-6 in amateur baseball action Tuesday at Memorial Park.

The Chaps got after Plover starting pitcher Steve Pettit early and often, chasing him after just 1 2/3 innings.

The Chaps did all their damage in the second. Pettit promptly plunked Noah Panzer. Alex Steines walked in front of a Cale Cuddie single, before Ryan Metz unwittingly drove in a run by getting drilled by Pettit as well, giving the Chaps their first run.

Nate MacDonald’s two-run single made it 3-0, Pilz was hit by a pitch, Riley Erickson drove in a run with a fielder’s choice, and Luke Wirtz had a sacrifice fly to push Marshfield’s lead to 6-0. Pettit left the game after another hit and a pair of wild pitches.

When the smoke cleared, the Chaps had eight runs on just four hits on one error, a couple wild pitches, and three hit batters. They wouldn’t score again, but it proved to be enough for Marshfield.

Bill Held, a grizzled vet, who pitched for Winona State at one time, gave the Chaps nothing. When he wasn’t throwing it by them with a fastball that seemed to get faster as the game went on, he was screwing them into the ground with myriad of off-speed pitches that left some Marshfield batters flailing at balls in the dirt. Held struck out 14 of the 27 Chaps he faced, walking no one and scattering six hits in 7 2/3 innings.

Plover’s Mitch Malek hit a three-run homer in the third inning to cut the lead to 8-3 and the Pterodactyls chased Marshfield starter Jack Donahue after a hit batter, a double, and consecutive run scoring singles that made it 8-5.

Noah Panzer took over for Donahue and pitched the final three innings allowing a run in the ninth on a single by Jason Jones, but he shut it down from there for the three inning save.

Co-managers Justin Rayburn and Sam Schwanebeck, and veteran Lucius Messerschmidt benched themselves so some of the younger Chapparrals (4-4) could get some at-bats as the summer schedule starts to heat up.

“Tonight we scored early and played good defense,” said Rayburn. “Anytime you do those two things, it puts pressure on the opposing teams.”

The Chaps will look to get their record over .500 as they take on Everest at 7:30 p.m. Saturday night at Simon Field in Schofield.

Marshfield Chaparrals baseball falls short at home to Merrill

Posted on 20 June 2017 by paul

By Steve Pilz

MARSHFIELD – The Marshfield Chaparrals amateur baseball team saw their record fall to 3-4 after a 3-2 loss to the Merrill Rangers on Monday night at Jack Hackman Field.

After three consecutive postponements due to rain, the Chaparrals must have been chomping at the bit to get back on the diamond after a 10-day lay-off.

Chaps starter Drew Spaeth walked the first batter he faced. With one out, Spaeth gave up three consecutive singles that scored three runs before striking out the side. But the damage was done and the Rangers led 3-0 before Marshfield even batted.

Cale Cuddie drew a one out walk in the third and moved to third on a double by teammate Nate MacDonald, but the Chaps left them stranded with a strikeout and a groundout. That’s as close as anyone would come to scoring until late in the game.

Spaeth settled down to his normal self after the first, eating innings and mowing down Merrill. The big right-hander left after eight innings of work, giving up just five hits, with seven stikeouts and only the one walked surrendered to the leadoff hitter in the first. Ryan Metz pitched the ninth.

Spaeth’s counterpart, Chase Nelson, kept Marshfield off balance all night. He pitched a complete game seven-hitter, striking out four and walking just two.

The Chaparrals finally scored after one out in the eighth inning. Riley Erickson put a ball in play that the third baseman couldn’t handle and Sam Schwanebeck plated him with a ringing double over the centerfielder’s head. Luke Wirtz then reached first after another Merrill mishap that allowed Schwanebeck to score from second, but they could do no more damage.

Another Chaps’ scoring opportunity went awry in the ninth. After a strikeout, MacDonald was drilled in the back and awarded first base. He promptly stole second and got to third on a pitch that got away from the catcher. But he too was stranded and the Chaps saw their Dairyland League record fall to 2-3.

“We hit the ball better tonight, but didn’t have any timely hitting,” Chaparrals manager Justin Rayburn said. “We left a lot (11) of guys on. I was happy with the late rally. We did have some tough late-inning at-bats.”

The Chaparrals will look to even their record Tuesday night when they travel to Plover for a 7:30 p.m. game against the Pterodactyls.
