The Gering Platte Valley Companies’ 36ers senior Legion baseball team split games in the Chadron tournament on Saturday losing to Alliance 5-0 and beating Buffalo, Wyo. 5-0.

In the first game, Bret Barge took the loss against Alliance while pitching the entire game. The win went to Francis Jaramillo. The game lasted six innings as Barge got four strikeouts, gave up six hits and two walks, and three earned runs. The Gering offense earned two hits, two walks and struck out 14 times.

The second inning was a killer for Gering as Alliance scored all five of its runs in top half. Both of Barge’s walks were in the second inning. Gering’s only hits were by Austin Reynolds in the bottom of the fourth and Esai Hernandez in the bottom of the sixth.

The Gering Seniors had better luck against Buffalo. Justin Brester pitched the win for Gering giving up four hits, no runs and no walks. The 36ers earned six hits with Reynolds, Barge, Nate Ferrerya, and Hernandez each earning one hit. Dillon DeMott also picked up two hits.

Gering had one run come in in the second inning as Walker Britsch crossed home plate. In the fourth inning Hernandez hit a bases loaded double and sent Ferrerya and Barge home. Reynolds batted in DeMott later in the inning. The game ended with a rain delay and Gering got a 5-0 win. The Gering Seniors are now 5-2 and are home tonight against Guernsey at 7 p.m.

The Gering B&C Steel juniors saw action on Saturday with a double header against Fort Morgan, Colo. Gering won the first game 11-1 and lost the second 10-7. Conner Pickett earned the win on the mound giving up three hits, one walk and one run, while getting eight strikeouts. Christian Rogers, Austin Hoffman and Trace Fulk had one hit each, and Chris Palomo, Dalton Scott, and Conner Picket with two each. Runs saw Palomo with one, Scott with three, Rogers with two, and one run each from Brendon Brester, Trace Fulk and Conner Pickett.

Gering had a 10-6 hitting advantage over Fort Morgan in the second game, but still lost 10-7. Fulk took the loss and was relieved by Palomo. Fulk gave up six hits and two walks with three strikeouts. Fulk had one strikeout. In the hits department, Brester had three, Gutherless had two, and Riley Grote, Dylan Radzymski and Skylar Mueller each had one.

Gering Juniors are now 3-4 on the season and will see action tonight at home vs Guernsey. The opening pitch is at 5 p.m.
