Bombs Away in Gibbon

7/12/20

It was a beautiful Sunday afternoon at the ballpark in Gibbon. The Tigers fell behind 1-0 in the bottom of the first, but from there Isaac Fink allowed just one more hit and one additional run in seven innings of work.

The long balls were flying with Fink helping himself with a solo shot. Ryan Sturm added a grand slam as part of a six-run fourth inning.

Springfield pushed the lead to 8-2 before the Reds fought back with a three-run homer to get them within three. The way the ball flies in Gibbon, a lead is never secure, as teams can come back in a hurry with a little yard work after getting a base runner or two.

Brandon Wilhelmi took the wind out of the Reds' sails allowing just one hit over the final inning and two-thirds to serve the 8-5 victory.

NOTES: Gibbon is another team sporting new jerseys for the 2020 season. They have also returned to their red cap with the white G on the front...The Tomahawk East has a log jam at the top. Four teams have four wins thus far in league play. Every ballgame is huge during this COVID-19 shortened regular season...Brandon Wilhelmi has been lights out on the mound during the past three ballgames, going nine and two-thirds innings, allowing just one unearned run on six hits. Since Tuesday, Wilhelmi has earned two wins and a save for the Tigers...Springfield's next opponent, the Stark Longhorns, has postponed their last two games due to COVID-19 concerns. Hopefully, everything is good to go and the Tigers can head over to Stark on Wednesday night.

Tweet All About it: Tigers cruise to an 8-5 W. Offense had 13 hits but left 15 on. @ikefink3 with the W & 3 hits including a dinger. @brandonwilhelmi came on in relief & also had a dinger. @BrandenFlock had 3 hits. @Erickson_6 & @patmoriarty14 with 2 hits. @rsturm12 with a GS.
Next up Wed @ Stark.
