Cyclone baseball team upsets #10-ranked Don Bosco, 3-1
By Sean Kiefer

The Don Bosco Dons are a tough baseball team, as they’re ranked #10 in class 1A and are 12-5. Denver was on a 5-game winning streak coming into this game, so they hoped to extend it against the Dons. The streak continued, as the Cyclones won against the ranked Dons 3-1 on June 23.

In the earlier innings, the Cyclones set the stage for later innings. Zach Miller pitched phenomenally, walking zero batters and striking out three in three innings. Brock Farley had a home run in the bottom of the first, making it his tenth home run this season. Don Bosco scored one run and Denver scored 3 runs in 3 innings.

In later innings, the game got very suspenseful. Denver clung onto the 3-1 lead into the top of the 7th, putting the Dons in a tough situation. The Dons singled and had a runner on base, but following that a fly-out occurred giving the Dons one out. The runner on first made an illegal block getting back to first base, resulting in another out for the Dons. A groundout ended the game.

In an interview with Cyclone Baseball Head Coach Dustin Rewerts, he said, “We’ve been playing really well lately, we’re now on a 5 or 6 game win streak here.” He added, “The things we worked on earlier in the season we’ve finally gotten enough practice and games in where we’re finally doing things how we expect to do them.”
