Adam Vieth pitches in 4–1 Royall win

By JOE VITCENDA | Royall Legion coach

Behind Marcus Blaha’s pitching, the Royall Legion won an abbreviated contest at Necedah by 14-4 on July 10.

Blaha allowed the four runs on only three hits while walking seven. Walks were responsible for all of the Cardinals’ scoring.

Leading Royall, Dustin Groom had four hits, including a triple, a double and two singles aided by five RBI. Trae Ness ripped three singles, and Donnie Robson and Brett Stanek each contributed two singles.

On Friday, Royall split a doubleheader with Melrose-Mindoro, with Christian Moore taking the loss by 6-1 in the 6 p.m. opener.

Moore struggled with control, walking seven in five innings. Walks meant everything in the contest, as each walk set up scoring opportunities.

Giving up two hits, Moore struck out 12.

Royall gathered only four hits: Moore and Adam Vieth slammed doubles, and Dalton Lunde and Mark Preuss hit singles.

In the second game of the evening, Vieth pitched a gem, allowing one hit, one run and no walks in a five-inning game, which Royall won 4-1. Vieth toyed with a no-hitter through four innings, and then going into the top of the fifth with one out, but he left a fastball up for a solo home run. He struck out seven on the night.

The top hitters were Groom, who had a pair of doubles, and Chuck Brandt, who had a solo double. The Royall Legion team collected nine walks, which aided the scoring attack.
