Foley shuts down Red Wing at plate, leads Skeeters to upset winHager City pitcher Elliot Foley pitched a complete game in leading Hager City to 2-1 win at Red Wing.
RED WING - Hager City’s Elliot Foley made quick work of the Aces in a 2-1 victory Tuesday night at the Red Wing Athletic Field.
The veteran hurler recorded 17 fly ball outs, including 10 that didn’t leave the infield, en route to an impressive complete-game victory. He scattered nine hits and struck out two, relying heavily on his off-speed pitches.
The Aces also made it tough on themselves. Their four errors led to two unearned runs and wasted a gem by Jordan Warren, who fanned six in nine innings. They made four outs on the base paths, including three at third base, and continue to miss signs, according to Tauer.
“The better team won tonight,” Red Wing Manager Cory Tauer said. “We didn’t play good defense. We didn’t hit the ball very well and we didn’t run the bases all that well either.”
Adam Thygesen and Brandon LaRue finished with two hits apiece for the Aces, who fall to 19-7 on the year.
Foley helped his own cause by pounding out three of the team’s eight hits. Mike Berg added a pair, while Lance Murphy singled and scored both runs — one in the first and one in the third.
Red Wing pushed across a run in the sixth, but Foley didn’t allow any more.
