Pitchers Battle Results in a 2-2 Tie in Wadena
Tuesday May 17th in Wadena, SK
A large crowd applauded the Rosebud Royals and Fishing Lake Mariners after a 2-2 tie Tuesday night in Wadena. The Rosebud Royal jumped to an early lead with two runs in the first inning but the Fishing Lake Mariners answered back scoring one in the top of the second. For the next four and a half innings pitchers James Holowaty and Dusty Keshane did not allow a run. In the 5th Inning, Royals center-fielder Kory Achtymichuk made spectacular diving catch and doubled off the runner at second base to hold the Rosebud Royals lead until Darcy Kayseas hit a solo home run in the top of the 7th. Kayseas’ home run lead to a 2-2 final score for the first men’s league game in Wadena since the mid-1990’s.
