The Flames upped their Tri- County record to 2-0 (11-4 overall). Plymouth and Hartford also compete in the Rock River League.

“The Hartford game was a nice win. They are 8-2 in Rock River play and have posted numerous shutouts on the season,” said Flame manager Rick Meyer.

“He pitched with confidence and gave us our first nine-inning complete game of the season. Although not overpowering, Jake keeps hitters off balance with offspeed pitches that make his fastball sneaky fast.

“We played good defense behind him and Hartford never mounted a serious threat,” said Meyer.

Klemme surrendered one earned run on six hits with three walks, one hit batter and six strikeouts en route to the win.

Plymouth gave all the support Klemme would need when it scored two runs in the top of the first inning. Klemme doubled in a run and scored on Luke Held’s ensuing base hit.

The Flames rapped out 12 hits, led by Held and Greg Rhude with three each. Zac Cain and Greg Krahn added two each. Held and Krahn had a team-high two RBIs apiece.

Rhude paced Plymouth in runs with three.

“It was a good team win, with help from everyone,” said Meyer.

“Although we had 12 hits, we really didn’t pound the baseball. However, we strung some hits together with six two-out hits in our run-scoring innings.”

Jordan Stephans and Nate Roethle led the Hawks in hits with two each.

Derek Hall was the losing hurler. Hall started and went five innings – allowing five runs (all earned) on eight hits with no walks, two hit batters and six strikeouts.
