T-town, St. Anthony highlight a busy weekend

Teutopolis overwhelms Salem in doubleheader

The Wooden Shoes didn’t look like a team that had been impacted in the preseason by harsh weather conditions. Teutopolis got its season rolling with a two-game sweep over the Wildcats on Saturday in Salem.

Teutopolis surrendered just one hit in the first game and had 12 of their own, outmuscling the opponent for an 11-0 win. Starter Ryan Ruholl was rock solid in first start, pitching four shutout innings and allowing the only hit of the game for Salem. Ruholl struck out two batters and walked one, earning the season-opening win.

At the plate, Teutopolis methodically built its lead, scoring runs in every inning but the second and seventh. Reed Hardiek, Alex Goldstein, Kyle Pruemer and Bobby Wenthe all knocked in a pair of runs, and Wenthe also cracked a home run in the big victory.

In game two, Teutopolis allowed its only run of the afternoon, but the offense did more than its fair share to come away with another wide margin of victory, 14-1.

Bobby Wenthe pitched four shutout innings, and struck out a staggering nine batters in his first outing for the win. Wenthe got it done again at the plate, batting in two runs off a double. Andy Borries also had two RBIs, and Chase Wendling, Probst, Justin Kenter, Timothy Probst and Michael Gillespie had an RBI apiece.

The pair of wins improved the Wooden Shoes’ record to 2-0 out of the gates, and Teutopolis plays next on Tuesday when they welcome Cumberland.

    It's not fair to say Windsor/Stew-Stras' Christian Vonderheide has been planning on attending College of the Ozarks since he was 13 years old.
    But the seed was planted when the senior righty first attended the Sho-Me Baseball Camp as a 13-year-old, establishing a relationship with the college and the coaching staff over the years.
    He made it official last month, inking his letter of commitment to play for the NAIA school in Point Lookout, Mo.
