Ending Four Rivers Conference play on a winning note, the Union baseball Wildcats picked up wins over Owensville and New Haven this week.

Union knocked off the Dutchmen at home Tuesday, 15-4, and then won 7-2 at New Haven Wednesday.

Weather permitting, the Wildcats (5-7, 4-3) play Friday afternoon against Borgia at Rotary Recreational Complex - Ronsick Field in Washington. First pitch is scheduled for 4:30 p.m.

The Wildcats go to Jefferson City Saturday to take on Hickman at 12:30 p.m. and Helias at 2:45 p.m.

On Monday, the Wildcats close out the regular season with a game against Potosi at East Central College. First pitch is set for 4:30 p.m.

Owensville

Union’s nine-run second inning proved to be the difference in Tuesday’s 15-4 Four Rivers Conference win over the Owensville Dutchmen at East Central College.

“We started off slow and spotted them a two-run lead,” Union Head Coach Ryan Bailey said. “Scoring nine runs in the second inning gave us some breathing room but then they scored two runs over the next two innings to cut into the lead.”

Owensville added single runs in the third and fourth innings to go with the two first-inning runs. Union led 9-4 before adding one run in the bottom of the fifth and then ending it with five runs in the bottom of the seventh.

“We stopped hitting until the sixth when we broke it open and were able to end the game early with the 10-run rule. Overall, it was nice to win a game after a long stretch of close losses.”

Union poled out 16 hits in the game, including two doubles. Brendan Burgess and Dillen Myers had the doubles.

Emmett Parker led the way with three singles. He also scored twice, drove in two, stole a base and added a sacrifice.

“Emmett Parker had a good game at the plate,” Bailey said. “All three of his hits were solid contact and up the middle.”

Burgess, Dustin Griffin, Ashton Dehn, Aldwin Fleer and Myers each had two hits.

Drew Juengel, Andrew Lenau and Mike Wachter each had one hit.

Burgess and Parker scored two runs apiece.

Burgess, Juengel, Dehn and Parker each drove in two runs. Griffin, Lenau, Myers and Wachter each had one RBI.

Juengel, Dehn, Fink and Jacob Lenau walked.

Burgess stole two bases. Griffin, Juengel, Parker and Myers each posted one stolen base.

Griffin, Parker and Myers contributed sacrifices.

Dehn pitched 4.1 innings and earned the win. He allowed two unearned runs on two hits and two walks. Dehn struck out eight Dutchmen.

Juengel pitched 1.2 innings, allowing two runs on five hits and one walk. He struck out one.

“We’ve been playing quite a few underclassmen due to some changes in our roster,” Bailey said. “Although that makes it harder to compete with senior-dominant teams, it’s been fun to see some of our younger players start to come through for us in big situations.”

New Haven

Union followed up Tuesday’s win with a 7-2 victory at New Haven on Wednesday.

“With the weather coming up this weekend there’s a chance this was our last game before districts,” Bailey said. “If so, it was a good game to end on. We played a lot of small ball and when doing that the guys need to be able to get their signs and execute those signs. For the most part I thought we did that. I was proud of the way we played and I thought it was our best overall game of the year.”

Union broke through first, scoring two runs in the top of the third and three more in the third.

New Haven got one run back in the bottom of the third. Union scored twice in the sixth and New Haven got its other run in the bottom of that inning.

Union outhit the Shamrocks, 10-9, but took advantage of five New Haven errors as well.

Fink went the distance on the hill for Union, allowing two runs on nine hits and one walk. He struck out six.

“Trey Fink pitched a good game,” Bailey said. “He’s stepped up and thrown two complete games for us in his last two starts after we’ve lost some players on our roster to discipline problems. He’s a guy we need to step forward both the rest of this year and for next year and it’s good to see him doing that.”

Austin Madden went six innings for New Haven, allowing seven runs (four earned) on nine hits and three walks. He fanned four.

Garrett Schoenfeld pitched the final inning, walking one and striking out one.

Griffin recorded three hits, two RBIs and two stolen bases for Union.

Juengel and Myers each had two hits. Juengel doubled, scored and drove in three. Myers also walked.

Dehn (one run), Parker (two runs and a walk) and Andrew Lenau (one run) posted one hit apiece.

Fink and Jacob Kreutz walked. Burgess and Nick Schumaker added sacrifices.

“We had some guys have nice days all over the field,” Bailey said. “Drew Juengel had two hits and three RBIs and came through in some big spots in the field. Dillen Myers took some good at-bats and came away with two hits. Dustin Griffin hit the ball hard and raised his batting average over .400. As a sophomore, he’s become a big bat in the middle of our lineup. Brendan Burgess didn’t have a hit, but he put the ball in play and moved runners over and he made some big defensive plays behind his pitcher which picked the team up when we needed a lift in the middle innings.”

For New Haven, Madden, Kyle Ruediger and Schoenfeld each had two hits. Schoenfeld’s hits were doubles. Madden also hit a double.

Cameron Prichett, Tyler Strobel and Brandon Carey each had one hit.

Ruediger and Carey scored the runs. Madden and Carey drove in runs.

Schoenfeld walked.
