  • By Harry Lipsiea Prior to the opening round of the Class B Legion Baseball Tournament in Langdon Thursday, Thompson head coach Brady Schwab pointed out that when his team is on defense and pitching leads the way. That was evident against Nelson County in the team's 5-1 victory.
    "When we play defense with solid fundamentals, this group has been very successful," Schwab, a Devils Lake native, told the Journal Tuesday afternoon. "Our pitching has been a strength for most of the season. We have guys that go out and throw strikes."
    Lake Region State College baseball player and Thompson ace Skyler Carlson showed that he can definitely throw strikes Wednesday afternoon. The lefty punched out 14 Owl batters in just six innings. In the end, Carlson, who picked up the win, struck out all but four batters that he faced. Behind him, the Thompson defense made no errors.
    Nelson County, in its first appearance at the state tournament wasn't able to get much going as the team scattered four hits on Carlson and company. Jayden Grover led the team offensively with two hits and a RBI. Hunter Engel had a hit and a run.
    The victorious squad jumped on Nelson County by scoring four runs in the first. Tom Nistler, Cadyn Schwab and Ryne Dolleslager each added a pair of hits in the win.
    Thompson moves on to face LaMoure in the second round at 4 p.m. while Nelson County plays Renville County at 10 a.m. in loser-out action.
    Carrington 1 (1-4-1) W: Pat Freeman; Alex Jarrett, single; Braxton Hewitt, run. Langdon 0 (0-2-2) L: Kalton Agnes; Erik Aanderud, double; Agnes, single.
    Enderlin 13 (13-10-0) W: Daniel Lindgren Burlington 0 (0-2-4) L: Cole Grosche
