Cubs, Wright trip Cascade

SEMI-PRO BASEBALL

     Kyle Wright hurled a five-hitter over seven innings, and was backed by an offense that collected a season-high 15 hits, as the Monticello Cubs scored a 6-1 semi-pro baseball victory July 8 at Cascade.

     “It was good to go to Cascade and get a big win,” Monticello player-manager Tanner Felton said.

     Wright allowed one earned run and struck out five, and the Cubs (7-9) turned three double plays as part of a key victory over a longtime Eastern Iowa Hawkeye League nemesis.

     “Kyle Wright had another great outing on the mound,” the manager said. “He was hitting his spots and getting a lot of ground balls.

     “Our middle infield turned three double plays, which was huge for us.” 

     Quinn Miller and Wright each batted 3-for-4; Wright had two runs batted in, and Miller stole three bases. Getting two hits apiece were Tanner Felton, Tyler Felton (including a double) and Cade Armstrong. Andrew Mescher had two stolen bases.

     “Everyone has been swinging the bat well, and we ran the bases exceptionally well,” Tanner Felton said.

     Earlier, the Cubs played another league game at Worthington July 2, and lost 13-4. The Cardinals put together a 10-run fifth inning to break this game open and lead 12-0, before Monticello answered with four runs in the top of the sixth.

     “Worthington was a tough game. All credit to them,” Tanner Felton said. “They pitched well and had a big inning to seal the deal.”

     The Cubs were held to four hits. Conner Burk knocked in two runs. Tyler Felton, Tanner Felton and Mescher were the Monticello pitchers, with Tyler Felton taking the loss. 

All-Star picks

     Andrew Mescher was selected and served as the starting centerfielder for the EIHL’s All-Star Game. Matt Holmes was also selected, but could not attend, and was replaced by teammate Kyle Wright.

     “All three deserved to be a part of that,” Tanner Felton said. “They are all a huge part of our team.”
