HAMLER – After not playing a game in six days and being confined to indoor practice for five days, The Tinora Rams showed little rust in shutting out the Patrick Henry Patriots Saturday.
On a beautiful late morning from Garrold Parratt Field, the site of three of the Rams Regional Final victories that propelled them to State in 2012, ’13, and ’14, The Rams were finally able to take the field after seeing another weeks worth of games wiped out due to rain.
Tinora came out with a run in the first on back to back doubles by Kadyn Radzik and an RBI double by Cole Commisso, putting Tinora on top with a 1-0 lead.
The Rams again struck with the squeeze play, Ty Wiemken with another great bunt, giving the Rams a 3-0 lead after two.
The Rams bats would add three runs in the third, Tinora would lead 6-0 lead after three innings.
In the fourth, RBI’s by Cole Commisso and Casen Wolfrum would add to the Tinora lead, 8-0 after four innings.
In what would turn out to be the final inning in the top of the fifth, the Rams bats were exploding. A three run HR by senior Nolan Schafer would put the Rams up 11-0, then a solo shot by Cole Commisso would put the final fun for the day on the board, giving the Rams a 12-0 win in five innings over the Patriots.
Rams starter Tristan Birks would go five innings for his first win, allowing just one hit, while striking out seven.
Tinora improves to 13-2 (5-1 GMC)
A full week of games ahead for the Rams. Monday vs Kalida, Tuesday vs Archbold, Wed in a HUGE GMC game vs Wayne Trace, Thursday at Swanton, Friday at Bryan, and next Sat at Miller City.
