Wooden Shoes sweep Flaming Hearts in doubleheader

Effingham hosted Teutopolis Tuesday for a doubleheader, and thanks to the Wooden Shoes' consistent approach at the plate and solid pitching, left with a pair of defeats.

Teutopolis downed Effingham 6-1 in game one and 5-2 in game two to sweep its regional rival.

Now, with bad weather looming, it'll be Effingham's second doubleheader in two days, as the City Series with St. Anthony will feature two games today.

The Wooden Shoes' game one victory was a team effort, but started on the hill with freshman Kadi Borries. She pitched a complete game, allowing one run and six hits while striking out 10.

"Kadi did a really nice job that first game," said Teutopolis coach Rich Niebrugge. "She was very efficient and right around the plate all night long. Dakota (Swingler) came in and gave them a different look in game two."

Opposing starter Ciara Kronewitter ran into some trouble, loading the bases in the first inning. Allison Apke got Teutopolis on the board with a sacrifice fly for the only run of the enning.

Madison Cowman drove in a run in the third, followed by Apke's second RBI of the game to put Teutopolis up 3-0.

The Hearts got their only run in the fourth, scoring on doubles by Deedra Myers and Shelby Nunamaker to make it 3-1.

"She drove in some big runs for us today," said Effingham coach Jerry Trigg. "Even though she's a freshman, she's one of our better hitters."

Teutopolis got it right back, scoring on RBIs by Danielle Repking and Julie Wente in the fifth, and Apke's third RBI of the day in the sixth to clinch the 6-1 victory.

Game two started differently, with Myers and Swingler battling for three scoreless innings.

Cowman led off the fourth by reaching on an error, and then stealing second. Kaylee Tonn's throw into center went wide, and the throw to third also went wide, allowing Cowman to score on one pitch.
