After having trouble scoring runs earlier in the season, the Pheasants erupted with 16 runs in game one, for a 16 to 3 victory and 15 runs in game 2 for a 15 to 0 victory over Mobridge. The young Pheasant team pounded out thirteen hits, including five extra base hits in game 1. Ercic Felderman contributed 3 hits in the lead off role, Sutton Masat added two hits including a solo shot over the left field fence, and Elliot Millar added two hits including a bases clearing double in the first inning to get the Pheasants going. Nate Binger continues to have a hot bat as he added two hits and Drew Dickhaut added a 2-run homer that was a no doubter when it left his bat. Tommy Gregg pitched 5 solid innings to claim his first victory of the year. Coach Millar commented that he was glad to see Tommy pick up his first win, as he has pitched a number of quality innings this year already, but suffered from run support.
Mobridge’s pitcher had difficulty finding home plate in the second game as numerous walks and a few hits lead to an 11 to 0 lead for the Pheasants after the first inning. The Pheasants added 1 run in the second and 3 runs in the third to end the game in 3 innings with a score of 15 to 0. Eric Felderman and Drew Dickhaut each had a double and single to lead the Pheasant hitting attack. Elliot Millar pitched 3 innings of solid baseball allowing only one hit.
