NYM Baseball: Sebeka shuts out Eagles

By John George

The New York Mills Eagles held off a late rally by Pillager to pick up their first win of the season last Thursday, 5-4.

The Eagles got on the board in the top of the third with a pair of runs. Nathan Burg drove in the Joe Hendrickx for the first score. Tanner Wegscheid made it 2-0 with a RBI single scoring Maison Roberts. Michael Cichy made it 3-0 in the fourth with a RBI single scoring Mike Baune.

After Pillager scored two in the sixth, Mills score much needed insurance runs in the top of the seventh on a two-run double by Roberts.

Pillager scored two in the bottom of the seventh before Adam Snelgrove shut down the rally for the save. Ted Rohr earned the win for the Eagles with six solid innings, allowing just one earned run with five strike outs.

Tuesday at Sebeka

Sebeka made it three shutouts in a row over New York Mills with a 4-0 win Tuesday night.

Maison Roberts was 3-for-4 at the plate in the loss for Mills.

Sebeka, one of the three co-champs of the Park Region Conference last year, outscored NYM 19-0 in their two games in 2008.


Due to a change in the schedule, NY Mills will host Bertha-Hewitt today (April 23) at Jacobson Field starting at 4:30 p.m. The game was scheduled to be played April 20.

New York Mills will be away from home over the next week, beginning with a non-conference game at Ashby on April 24. The Eagles beat their Section 6A rivals last year, 14-6.

Mills will return to Park Region Conference play on April 28 when they take on Otter Tail Central in Battle Lake. The Eagles split with OTC in last year's regular season finale.

Mills will continue on the road April 30 with a doubleheader at Menahga. The Braves won both games last year in a doubleheader sweep, 12-5 and 9-3.
