Jr Royals take lead in Richardson Pioneer Fastball League

Rosebud JR Royals win 3-1
Over Rhein Rockets

WP Koby Faubert
Hr Evan Neibrandt Rockets

Friday night at RE/MAX Diamond in Wadena saw a intense ball game 1 of the Richardson Pioneer Men’s Fastball Finals. Veteran Pitcher Terry Peppler from the Rockets and 16 year old Koby Faubert didn’t allow many base runners all game in a low scoring battle. The Royals came out on top with error free defence and a great display of “small ball” to score some of their few base runners with bunts, stolen bases and Clutch hits.

The Royals jumped to a 1-0 lead in the 3rd but Evan Neibrandt quickly tied it up with a solo home run in the top of 4. The Royals speed was showcased in the bottom of 6 with Carter Petersen getting a lead off bunt single Between 3rd and the pitcher and a stolen base, followed by a 0-2 single by Luke Scutchings. Scutchings was able to reach 3rd off a stolen base and error and Lucas Ochitwa’s scored him on a groundout to 2nd to take the lead 3-1. Royals shut the Rockets bats down once again in the top of 7 for the win thanks to pitcher Koby Faubert and solid defence by the teenaged Royals.

Game 2 In Rhein 2:00 Saturday.

Game 3 if needed to follow extra inning Sudden death format.

Finals are set

Final series dates (modified best of 3):
Friday at 6:30 in Wadena. 7 inning game.
Saturday at 2:00 in Rhein. 7 inning game. One-inning game 3 if needed would happen at the conclusion of game 2.

The League Final will feature a proven Rhein Rockets team having won 1st place in the league and been around the Men’s Fastball Circuit for year against a young team that has improved in the ranks every year of the leagues existence. The Jr Royals are made up of all U19 (formerly Midget Aged) and would have been competing for another Provincial Championship this year but with those cancelled this league title will be their last competitive games of the year.
