Osakis boys drop third game of the week, fall to Sauk CentreThe Silverstreaks wrapped up their week with an 0-3 record after dropping an 8-1 game against Sauk Centre last Friday.
The Silverstreaks wrapped up their week with an 0-3 record after dropping an 8-1 game against Sauk Centre last Friday.
Osakis saw its record drop to .500 after the loss at 4-4 overall. Sauk Centre took a 3-0 lead in the third inning on the back of three hits, two walks and an Osakis error. The Mainstreeters would never relinquish that lead as they added on over the late innings.
“We are lacking consistency right now and focus,” head coach Shad Schmidt said. “Not a good way to back up a 3-0 week with an 0-3 week. The good news is we have a four-game week, and we get a new opportunity to play and get better and pick up some wins, hopefully.”
Hunter Scherr got the start and took the loss on the mound. He threw the first four innings, allowing four runs on six hits and three walks. Lane Berberich and Drew Fearing combined to allow four runs, two earned, over the final two innings.
Doug Zimmel led the Osakis offense with two hits. He had the team’s only RBI with a run-scoring single in the sixth that brought in Berberich. Fearing and Berberich had the only other hits of the game for Osakis.
“We’re not going to let this week affect the rest of the season,” Schmidt said. “We are going to go out and play better and be better this week.”
