Badgers Beat Tigers Twice

Roberts & Taggart Pitch Way to Sweep


Zack Roberts (4-0) pitched a complete game 4 hitter striking out 10 and walking three in route to a 5 – 2 victory over the Timberlake Tigers in the first game and Greg Taggart (2-3) earned the win on the second game 10 - 7 pitching five strong innings allowing just four hits and two runs. The Badgers improved their record to 11-5 and 6-3 in the Intermountain League.

Game 1
Aaron Hoisington started off the scoring in the first inning when Roberts scored him on a sacrifice fly to center. Hoisington had reached on an error from the catcher after a strike out. In the second inning, Alex Kellogg singled to start the inning and Junior Zach Maas hit his second homerun of the season scoring Kellogg and himself. The homerun traveled over the left centerfield wall at 370 ft. Timberlake scored in the bottom of the third inning when Derek Tymeson hit an RBI single to score Morris.

Bonners Ferry added two more runs in the top of the seventh inning to make it a 5 – 1 game when Taggart reached on an error and Maas hit a single. Taggart later scored on Alek Lopez’s RBI single and Maas scored on an error from the Tiger third baseman. Timberlake added one run in the bottom of the seventh to make the final score 5 – 2.

Roberts finished the game with three hits while Robby Burns, Casey Nelson, Alex Kelllogg and Zach Maas each had two hits apiece.

Game 2
The Badgers scored two runs in the first inning when Hoisington singled and CJ Erickson hit an RBI double to score Hoisington. Zack Roberts knocked in Erickson with a fielder’s choice to the second baseman. Bonners Ferry added three more runs in the second inning when Taggart walked and Maas singled and later scored when Erickson hit a ball through the third baseman’s legs. Erickson later scored on a balk from the pitcher.

The Badgers added a run in the fourth when Hoisington scored Taggart. In the fifth inning, Bonners Ferry broke it open to make it a 10 – 2 game when Erickson was hit by a pitch, Roberts singled, Burns and Nelson reached on errors. They later scored on a single from Kellogg and a sacrifice fly from Taggart.

After Taggart was relieved by Alex Kellogg to start the sixth, Timberlake made it interesting in the sixth and seventh when they scored five runs on six hits and three walks. Kellogg was later relieved by Robby Burns with bases loaded and one out in the bottom of the seventh inning. Burns induced two pop ups to Roberts at shortstop to end the game.

Hoisington and Roberts each had two hits while Erickson hit a double.
