EL falls in regional finals

CAMPBELLSPORT – Brett Kasper's pitching and a key error by Elkhart Lake- Glenbeulah paved the way for a 4-2 win by Two Rivers in a regional baseball final here Friday evening.

The No. 13-seeded Resorters ended their season at 8-16. The Purple Raiders, seeded 12th, improved to 10-12.

Two Rivers scored three runs in the bottom of the second inning with two coming home on a dropped fly ball for an error. The Purple Raiders, who had two hits and a double-steal in the frame, led 3-1 after the second.

Kasper went the distance to notch the win. The junior allowed only four hits, walked just one, struck out six and gave up two earned runs.

Josh Schneider was the losing pitcher – also throwing a fourhitter. The senior allowed two earned runs and seven walks, fanned four and hit two batters.

The Resorters took a 1-0 lead in the first on Schneider's RBI double. Elkhart shaved Two Rivers' lead to 3-2 with a run in the fourth. Kyle Rentmeester doubled and scored on Schneider's single.

“Kasper really threw well. He had a lot of first-pitch strikes and was very active with his breaking ball,” said Resorter head coach Davin Hill. “He kept us off balance.

“Josh battled all night [on the mound]. It was uncharacteristic for him to walk that many. We were able to get out of some jams.”

Schneider led Elkhart in hits with two. Taylor Kaboord's double accounted for the team's other hit.

“Josh, Taylor and Kyle hit the ball hard,” Hill said.

Hill said it gave the Resorter baseball program a boost by having a good postseason. The team upset Campbellsport, 7-4, in the first round.

“Our team made a step in the right direction by beating Campbellsport, and then we had a chance to win against Two Rivers,” Hill said. “This should give the kids who are coming back confidence.”
