Region 15C baseball

The opening game of the Region 15C amateur baseball tournament was a treat for fans of both teams on Friday night in Farming. For Regal, they had plenty to cheer about through eight-and-a-half innings as they kept Elrosa in check while scoring two runs in the top of the sixth.

Pat Illies then smoked a 1-1 count pitch over the left-center fence for a two-RBI home run that ended the game with Elrosa winning 3-2.

Next: Elrosa (21-8) plays in a state-qualifying game at 11 a.m. on Sunday, August 6 in New Munich.

Below is video from the bottom of the third inning, when Regal starter Chris Beier earned two strikeouts in a row to end Elrosa's bases loaded threat.

It was one hell of a game to watch. Both pitchers, Beier and Ethan Vogt, went all nine innings and pitched outstanding games. You could not walk away from the game without being impressed by both teams.
