The Gering B & C Steel Junior Legion baseball team came away with no wins last week, suffering losses to Sidney 10-2 and then a double header to Spearfish, 7-5 and 15-3.
The first loss, a 10-2 affair, came on the road at Sidney last Wednesday. Sidney got on the board first with one run in the first. Although Gering answered in the top of the third with two runs, Sidney came back with two more runs in the bottom of the third. Gering did not score again but Sidney scored three in the fourth and four in the fifth.

Chris Palomo took the loss on the mound as he pitched for all five innings. Palomo had five strikeouts but also gave up 12 hits, 4 walks, and 10 runs along with eight errors.

On offense, Gering only managed four hits made by Dalton Scott, Dylan Radzymski, Riley Grote, and Mike Gutherless. The runs were made by Scott and Gutherless.
On Thursday Gering played Spearfish in a double header. Gering lost the first game 7-5. Spearfish started strong with three runs in the first inning while Gering managed one. Spearfish extended the lead by three more runs in the second to Gering’s none. Gering was able to score two in the third and another in the fifth, but Sidney made another run in the sixth. Gering made its fifth run the seventh but fell short of a comeback.

Scott pitched two innings and took the loss as he gave up six runs, three hits, and five walks. Scott managed two strikeouts. Gutherless finished the game pitching five innings with two strikeouts and gave up four walks, three hits and a run.
The Gering bats managed six hits with two each by Scott and Gutherless and one each by Radzymski and Luciano Montanez. Scott got two of the runs with Radzymski and Gutherless getting one, the fifth run was not recorded.

Things went from bad to worse for Gering in the second half of the double header as they lost big, by a 15-3 score. Gering started in the lead with two runs in the first inning, but Spearfish answered with a run in the second, two more in the third and five in fourth. Gering came up with one in the fifth, but Spearfish overwhelmed Gering with eight more runs in the sixth. The game ended on the 10-run rule.

Gering tried four different pitchers in the game, with Radzymski taking the loss with two innings pitched no strikeouts, one run, three walks and one hit. Jerald Ybarra pitched two innings with two strikeouts, three walks, seven hits and seven runs. Brayden Tarr pitched 1.1 innings with a strikeout, four walks, four runs, and no hits. Lance Garcia had no strikeouts, four runs, four hits, and one walk in .2 innings.

Gering did make a decent showing on offense with eight hits being made by Austin Abbott, Kaden Leonard, Garcia, Radzymski, Quinton Janacek, Montanez, Grote, and Gutherless. The runs were scored by Abbott, Garrett Conn, and Radzymski.
“We are working on defense and trying to get better in all aspects of the game.” Head Coach Pat O’Boyle said. “Defense is our main key with our young team and hopefully that will show the rest of this week.”

Gering has a tough week ahead of them with a Tuesday game against Westco, four games against Casper, and at least four games in the Hastings tournament.
