Bucs make it two in a row to start season

POTOSI – It took four extra innings, but when the dust settled it was the Ste. Genevieve Bucs who were on top of a 9-6 win over the Potosi Elks and also on top of the Senior Babe Ruth standings at 2-0.

The Elks tied the game up in the bottom of the seventh inning, and neither team scored again until the top of the 11th inning. The Elks had the winning run on third in the ninth, but a diving catch in the outfield by Todd Jokerst ended the threat.

Sean Odneal led off the 11th with a single and was sacrificed to second. Dane Werner reached on an error, and Brad Schweigert singled Odneal home for the winning run. David Burle followed with a two-run, insurance double, his only hit in the game.

Neither starter finished the marathon. Kellen Basler went six innings for the Bucs and Andy Aubuchon went nine for the Elks. Andy Miller picked up the win by pitching the last five innings, and the Bucs got their win with Kevin Brown on the mound for the Elks.

Miller was 3-5 at the plate with a double and a home run. Odneal also had a home run to go 2-5. Aubuchon, Collin Gillam and Brown were all 3-5 for the Elks.

The Bucs will try to keep their undefeated season going when they will play at home against the Caledonia Wildcats. The Elks, 0-2, will be at home tonight against the Leadwood Pirates.
