Creek Boys and Stormin’ Pointers split

CCA comes back from 8-6 loss for a 5-3 win against CPU

TIFFIN– Clear Creek Amana’s (CCA) varsity baseball team remained at the top of the WaMaC West with an 8-3 overall record and 8-2 conference mark in the wake of a split with the pesky Stormin’ Pointers from Center Point-Urbana (CPU) Monday, June 29, in Tiffin.
The Pointers took the opener, 8-6, but the Creek Boys reloaded and took a 5-3-nightcap win. CPU moved to 5-7 overall and 4-6 in the WaMaC West.
The dogs bit the Creek Boys with two runs in the top of the first inning in game one, and had the potential for more runs, but timely outs by the Clippers limited the damage. The Pointers added one run each in the second and third innings before Tyler Schrepfer was able to score on an error in the bottom of the third. CCA plated one in the fourth and fifth to trail 4-3 ahead of a three-run volley by the Pointers in the sixth. CPU added one more in the top of the seventh. The Clippers attempted a rally in the bottom of the seventh, coming up with three runs, but fell short for the 8-6 loss.
Brock Reade, Ben Swails and Sam Young smacked a pair of singles each with one RBI apiece for Parker Smith, Reade, Grant Jensen, and Swails. Young worked three innings on the mound, giving up eight hits and four runs with one strikeout. Stirlen Roberson put in three innings on the bump, giving up two hits and three runs with two Ks, while Cooper Hoffman pitched one inning giving up two hits.
The Creek Boys went on the offensive early in the nightcap, holding the Pointers scoreless through four innings while plating two runners in the bottom of the second, and again in the third. CPU broke through in the fifth with two runs, which was answered with a Clipper run in the bottom of the inning. The pups’ last effort came in the top of the seventh with one runner scoring for the 5-3 Clipper victory.
The Clippers took the win with only four hits, all singles, from Smith, Jensen, T.J. Bollers and Schrepfer with an RBI from Young and Roberson. Schrepfer went the distance for the win giving up five hits and three runs with nine strikeouts.
