 In Boys Minor League, Red Sox, Tigers, and Yankees Get Wins


May 23, 2007 - Recent Knightstown Optimist Club boys major league softball game results were reported to The Banner as follows:


The True Communications Red Sox resorted to dramatics to pull out a close game against the State Farm Insurance Athletics in boys minor league baseball action Saturday.

With the game tied 5-5 in the bottom of the sixth inning, Michael Weiland got things going for the Sox with a single. Lucas Haase then followed with another base hit, and Jacob Bearhope rapped out the game-winning hit, driving home Weiland with the winning run.

Bearhope crushed three hits in the game, including two doubles and the game-winning shot in the final inning. Dakota Locker had two hits, including three RBI and a two-run homer for the winners, who improved to 2-3 with the victory.

Bearhope and Tyler Littleton combined to strike out six Athletics in the game. Haase, Riley Ruble and Cory Speicher all had two hits, while Littleton and Weiland also hit safely for the Red Sox.

No individual player information was available on the Athletics.



Adam Bundy and Travis Issacs each had two hits and scored two runs to lead the Farm World Tigers to a 6-4 victory over the National Road BP Pirates in the Knightstown Optimist Club’s boys minor league baseball play.

Jared Waterman and Marcus Couch also had two hits for the winners, while Waterman also scored a run. Their efforts overcame great games by the Pirates’ Jarrett Weidner, who doubled and tripled in the game. Logan Whitaker slammed a triple in going 2-for-3 with two runs scored.

Dane Corbett, Seth Emerson, Lane Parker and Justen Madren also hit safely for the Pirates. Whitaker pitched one inning, allowing one run and striking out three batters.

The Knightstown Volunteer Fire Department Yankees fought to a 6-6 tie with the National Road BP Pirates in boys minor league baseball play last week.
