Sunday, May 22

The Albion Tigers scored early and often to outpunch an explosive Utica lineup on Sunday afternoon at Albion Park.  The Tigers banged out 15 hits and held off a potent Utica offense to earn a 13-9 victory in a marathon game that lasted nearly three and a half hours.  The win improves Albion to 3-1 on the season. 

Having lost the previous five contests with Utica dating back to to 2014, the Tigers bats were determined to provide a different outcome Sunday.

Utica scored two in the top of the first inning, but Albion answered with four in the bottom half on an RBI double by Kris Agnew (2x5), a sac fly by Kyle Johnson, and RBI singles by Tyler Oren (3x5) and Sam Martin.  The Association quickly knotted the score with two more in the second inning, but Albion answered with another four-run inning in the third, highlighted by Evan Deegan's RBI single and a 2-RBI single by Aaron Laskowski (2x6).

With the score in Albion's favor 8-5 after another Utica run in the fourth, Albion put up yet another four-run inning in their half of the fourth with RBIs from Lucas Gregory (2x4) and Deegan (2x5).  Gregory drove home Oren in the fifth as well, when his ground-rule triple to deep leftfield rolled across Academy Drive.

Along with swinging a big stick, Lucas Gregory also picked up the win for the Tigers on the mound, tossing 4 1/3 innings in relief and giving up two earned runs.  Rookie Jake Zeimet finished the game by blanking Utica in the eighth & ninth innings to secure the win for Albion.

AGNEW'S ARM, TIMELY HITS LEAD ALBION OVER DEERFIELD -- Kris Agnew held the host Deerfield Demons hitless through 6 2/3 innings on Sunday afternoon, ultimately yielding only one hit and one run to pick up his second victory of the season.  The veteran southpaw threw seven innings and struck out five in leading his Tigers to a 7-1 victory at Fireman's Park in Deerfield.  Josh Eastman fanned three in two scoreless innings of relief work on the mound.  The win improves the Tigers to 2-1 in the 2016 campaign.

After scoring two unearned runs on a throwing error in the first inning, Adam Gregory knocked home Cole Demrow and Agnew with a 2-out, 2-RBI single in the second inning to stake the Tigers to a 4-0 lead.  Albion scored their final two runs when Demrow lined 2-out RBI singles in both the 5th and 7th innings, en route to a 3-hit day for the Tiger rightfielder.  In both innings he drive home Tiger shortstop Tyler Oren, who was 2x3 with a double.


ALBION KNOCKS AROUND EVANSVILLE, WIN 12-1 -- After a tough 2-1 loss at McFarland in their season opener last weekend, the Albion Tigers were anxious for their first win of the season.  They grabbed that win on Saturday night in convincing fashion at Lake Leota Park in Evansville against the home Jays, winning 12-1 in a game shortened to seven innings by the 10-run mercy rule.  The win evens Albion's record on the young season at 1-1.  Left-hander Kris Agnew struck out the side in the first inning and never looked back, fanning eight hitters in five innings of work.  Agnew yielded only two hits, one walk, and one unearned run in five innings of work.  Bryant Schulte tossed two scoreless innings to close out the contest.

Tyler Oren's 2-out, 2-RBI single started the scoring, and Evan Deegan's RBI single gave the Tigers a 3-0 advantage in the first inning.  An RBI double by Austin Mades and a couple Jays defensive miscues gave the Tigers three more in the 2nd.  The game was put out of reach in the 3rd when Adam Gregory's base-clearing double drove in Brennan Deegan, Aaron Laskowski, and Agnew.

Mades hit his second double of the night to deep leftfield in the 7th, and he scored when leftfielder Sam Martin also doubled.  Martin came home on Evan Deegan's sacrifice fly, giving the Tigers their final tally.


2015 ALL-STARS LEAD TIGERS TO EXCITING EXHIBITION WIN -- Aaron Laskowski and Kris Agnew represented the Albion Tigers in last year's Home Talent League All-Star Game, and both players picked up 2016 where they left off 2015 in leading the Albion Tigers to a 4-3 win over the Sun Prairie Sun Dawgs in an exhibition game at Ashley Field on Sunday.  Laskowski, the reigning Southeast Section MVP, went 2x4 with a double and scored a run in the 1st inning and Agnew started on the hill and fanned ten in only four innings.

Fellow southpaw Bryant Schulte earned the victory, tossing scoreless frames in the 5th, 6th, and 7th.  Facing bases loaded and no outs in the 7th, Schulte induced a comebacker that he threw to catcher Sutton DeVoll for the first out.  A pop-up to Tigers second baseman Evan Deegan recorded the second out, and Schulte caught Sun Prairie centerfielder Aaron Schmidt looking to end the inning with no damage.

Sun Prairie threatened again in the 8th by loading the bases again with no outs, but Cameren Wileman fanned two Cardinals and got Jessie Lehman to ground out to end the threat yielding only one run.

Holding on to a 4-2 lead, Wileman loaded the bases with a one-out walk, and then hit a batter to push the game to 4-3.  But Cardinals thirdbaseman Mike Brekke lined out to Tiger rookie thirdbaseman Brennan Deegan, and he flipped to Matt Towns at second base to double-up Schmidt and end the game.


TIGERS GETTING READY FOR SPRING -- The Albion Tigers have finalized their 2016 schedule, looking to continue the success that they have had in recent years. The Tigers finished last year with a 17-10 overall record, including 12-4 in the Southeast Section and qualifying for the postseason for the tenth time in the last fourteen years. 

The Tigers will play April exhibition games in Sun Prairie and Cottage Grove before starting Southeast Section play on May 1 against McFarland. The home season starts Sunday May 22 against rival Utica at Albion Park, followed by a Memorial Day tilt against the Waterloo McKays (Monday May 30).

Other highlights of the schedule include two visits from defending Southeast Section champ Fort Atkinson (June 12 and June 23) and a July 10 showdown in Albion against the perennial contender Stoughton Merchants.

New this year - the First Annual Wally Olstad Classic will be played on Sunday July 17 at Edgerton Racetrack Park as part of Tobacco Heritage Days. The Tigers will face the McFarland Muskies with a 2pm first pitch.

One other date for Tiger fans to take note of is the Albion Par Three Challenge at Creekview Par Three on Sunday August 7.  Details on the golf outing will be coming soon. It's almost spring!!!
