The Albion Tigers waited patiently while Adam Gregory completed his collegiate career at UW-Whitewater before joining the Tigers for their 2015 season.  But once he did, he wasted no time in making an impact.  Gregory went 3x4 with a double, triple, 3 RBI, and 3 runs scored in his season debut, leading Albion to a 13-0 victory over the Cambridge Blues on a sunny afternoon at Albion Park.  Josh Eastman dealt five innings of one-hit ball to pick up his second victory of the season, striking out four and walking only one.

Albion rookie Lucas Gregory, who plays collegiately at UW-Oshkosh, made his pitching debut for the Tigers on Sunday, fanning five Blues in only two innings of relief work to end the game after seven innings due to the 10-run rule.

The Albion bats were aggressive all day, as four Tigers had multiple hits and five Tigers had multiple RBIs.  Adam Gregory's RBI single in the first inning plated Aaron Laskowski, and the Tigers moved ahead 2-0 when Kyle Johnson knocked in Gregory.  Albion grabbed another run in the second inning when Laskowski's sacrifice fly sent Kris Agnew (2x3) home, and Agnew's RBI single in the 3rd pushed the tally to 4-0.

Jim Eastman and Evan Deegan scored on Adam Gregory’s double in the fourth inning, and Josh Eastman and Johnson each drove home another run in that frame.  Tyler Oren’s 2-RBI drive to deep rightfield plated Johnson and Austin Mades (2x4) to score two more in a 6-run fourth inning.

A fifth-inning RBI single by Josh Eastman and consecutive RBI doubles by Mades and Agnew pushed the final three runs across for Albion.

TIGERS POUND DEMONS IN 2015 HOME OPENER -- Albion ace Josh Eastman made his season debut for the Tigers at Albion Park on Sunday afternoon, and it didn't take him long to get comfortable on the mound he's had such great success on over the last few seasons.  Eastman worked five scoreless innings while yielding only one hit and walking none.  The righty fanned nine Deerfield Demons in earning his first win of the summer and improving his Tigers to 3-0.

Southpaw Bryant Schulte struck out two more Demons in two scoreless innings to wrap up the contest that was called after the 7th inning due to the 10-run rule.

Albion grabbed a run early when Aaron Laskowski (2x4) reached on an infield single and was driven home by Austin Mades.  The Demons should have escaped the 2nd inning unscathed, but the Tigers took advantage of a defensive miscue and strung together four consecutive hits with two outs.  An Evan Deegan RBI single and consecutive 2-RBI singles by Kyle Johnson and Mades pushed the score to a 6-0 Tiger advantage.

Three more Deerfield errors in the 3rd inning led to five Albion runs, highlighted by a Tyler Oren (3x5) 2-RBI single.

Cameren Wileman (2x2) added more insurance for the Tigers with a pinch-hit 2-RBI single in the 5th, along with another RBI single in the 6th.  After a deep sacrifice fly by Mike Nanstad plated Lucas Gregory, RBI singles by Oren and Tim Houfe put the Demons away for good when the Mercy Rule took effect just before the rain rolled in to Albion.

AGNEW SHUTS DOWN JAYS, TIGERS IMPROVE TO 2-0 -- The Albion Tigers remained undefeated on the young season with a 9-1 victory over the Evansville Jays at Lake Leota Park on Saturday night.  A tight contest for most of the evening, the Tigers' bats came alive late in the game and propelled Albion to the victory and a 2-0 record.

Kris Agnew hurled eight innings for Albion, yielding only three hits and striking out 13 Jays.  Leading only 2-1 going in to the 7th inning, the Tigers' bats woke up and plated four insurance runs in that frame, and then three more in the 9th.

Agnew also contributed offensively, going 3x5 at the plate while driving home a run and scoring two more. 

After giving up an early run to the Jays, the Tigers evened the score when Sam Martin scored on Aaron Laskowski's RBI triple in the 3rd inning.

The contest remained tied until Agnew scored in the 6th inning when Evan Deegan (2x5) reached on an error.  Then the Tigers pulled away in the 7th with RBI singles by Agnew and Austin Mades (2x5), and a 2-RBI double to deep left-center by Kyle Johnson.  Johnson grabbed another RBI in the 9th inning when he drove home Laskowski (2x3).  Albion capped the scoring when Deegan ripped another hit scoring Johnson and Mades.

VETERANS LEAD TIGERS TO OPENING DAY WIN -- Mike Nanstad started his 17th season in a Tigers uniform the same way he has started many of the previous sixteen; toeing the rubber as Albion's opening day starter.  The veteran and 2009 Section MVP also enjoyed a similar result as he has many times in the past; earning a victory and pushing his Tigers to 1-0 in Southeast Section play.  After throwing seven innings, Nanstad watched from the dugout while his Tigers held off a 9th-inning scare by the Waterloo Firemen to secure a 4-2 victory.   

After giving up a run on consecutive doubles to the first two Waterloo hitters he faced, Nanstad struck out five and yielded no more hits before departing at the end of the 7th inning.  Kris Agnew fanned four Firemen in two innings of work to earn a save, including a strikeout to end the game with the tying run at second base. 

A group of experienced Tigers also led the way offensively.  Nanstad, Jim Eastman (2x5), and Agnew (2x4) combined for five of the team's seven hits.  With Waterloo leading 1-0 in the second inning, Nanstad doubled to the left-field fence, scoring Agnew and Marty Johnson.  And in his 27th season with Albion, Eastman singled and scored what turned out to be the winning run in the 8th inning.

Albion grabbed one more insurance run in the 9th when a cramping Sutton DeVoll crawled home (literally) on an RBI single by Aaron Laskowski.
