VFW Baseball: Boser, Strack pitch Little Falls past Princeton
By PATRICK SLACK
Little Falls opened the week by coming out on top of a pair of low-scoring games against Princeton, Monday, winning 2-0 and 2-1.
The Flyers mustered only two hits in the opener, but didn’t need any more as Kyle Boser dominated on the mound, striking out nine in a four-hit shutout.
The Flyers scored a run in each of the first two innings, with Alec Zack driving in Gabe Ploof in the first, followed by Ploof drawing a bases-loaded walk to force home Lucas Cofell in the second.
“Boser was dominant on the mound, as he mixed and matched pitches all day long,” coach Chad Kaddatz said. “He really had a hard fastball going, but was able to constantly change speeds to keep the Princeton hitters off balance.”
Jeremy Klein led off the finale with a base hit, stole second and came in to score on a botched pickoff attempt.
The Flyers added their second run in the fourth, as Nick Anderson walked, advanced to third on a single by Evan Athman and scored on an error.
Brett Strack went the distance on the mound, holding Princeton to just one unearned run on three hits and one walk.
