Shenandah slips past Monarch boys

Monarchs vs. Mustang baseball

Denison-Schleswig fell to 0-2 on the young baseball season following the Monarchs’ 4-1 Hawkeye 10 Conference loss to Shenandoah on Thursday night at Denison.

The game was called in the top of the seventh due to lightning.

D-S managed only two hits off Shenandoah pitcher Austin Herold, who struck out 15 Monarch batters and walked only three in five and two-third innings of work.

Braiden Heiden and Nathan Gallup both singled for D-S. Jack Mendlik scored the lone run for the hosts.

Gallup was credited with his team’s lone RBI.

Heiden started on the hill for D-S and went five innings, yielding three runs (two earned) on six hits with 12 Ks to his credit and only two walks.

Gallup relieved Heiden and gave up one run on one hit with one K and one walk in an inning on the mound.

Herold also went 2-for-3 with one RBI at the plate for the Mustangs.

Braden Knight was 2-for-4 with one run as well.

"The guys competed well, but we just didn’t do a lot of the little things you need to do to win games," commented Denison-Schleswig coach Travis Wessel.

"The Herold kid being a lefty really kept our hitters off-balanced all night at the plate. He throws in the low 80s and our guys just weren’t used to seeing a left-handed pitcher that throws like that," he added.

"You’re not going to win a lot of games with only two hits, though."

Defensively, I thought we did a pretty good job behind Braiden Heiden, as they (Shen) didn’t hit him hard, but they were just able to manufacture some runs and that was the difference."

"Heiden threw well I thought. Heck, he had 12 strikeouts and had good command of his fast ball and curve ball," Wessel said.
