July 29, 2018


Cedar Rapids, IA— The Quad Cities River Bandits recorded their league-leading 12th shutout of the season by defeating the Cedar Rapids Kernels 6-0 on Sunday afternoon at Veterans Memorial Stadium.  Parker Mushinski, Luis Garcia and Tanner Duncan combined to limit the Kernels to just two hits.


The River Bandits fired out of the gates, putting up a crooked number in the first inning against Kernels starting pitcher Jordan Balazovic.  Marty Costes opened the game with a bouncer up the middle. He went to third base when Seth Beer dropped a shallow single into center field.  The hit extended Beer’s hitting streak to 15 games.  Colton Shaver went the other way with a two-RBI triple into the right field corner to put the Bandits on the board.  Alfredo Angarita increased the lead with a double down the left field line that brought Shaver home.  Ruben Castro finished off the outburst with an RBI single past third to make it 4-0.


After neither team scored for the next four innings, the Bandits added to their lead in the sixth.  Angarita opened the inning with a triple that landed on the warning track in right field.  Castro drove him in by lifting a sacrifice fly into center field and the lead was 5-0.


In the top of the eighth, Shaver and Chandler Taylor opened the frame with back-to-back singles.  Miguelangel Sierra took advantage by lining an RBI single into left field to score Shaver and widen the gap to 6-0.


Mushinski went 4.0 scoreless innings and allowed just one hit.  He walked six, the most in a game this season for a Bandits pitcher. Garcia followed with 4.0 scoreless innings of his own out of the bullpen to earn the win. He allowed just one hits and walked four. Duncan closed out the game by retiring the side in order in the ninth.


The River Bandits outhit the Kernels 13-2.  Shaver led all hitters with three hits and two runs batted in.  Castro also drive in two runs.  Joining them with two hits were Sierra and Angarita.

July 29, 2018


Dayton, Ohio—Dayton starting pitcher Mac Sceroler (suh-ROLL-er) allowed just two hits over six scoreless innings as the Dragons defeated the Lansing Lugnuts 8-2 on Sunday afternoon.  A crowd of 7,725 was in attendance at Fifth Third Field.


Sceroler, who began the season with the Dragons but made only four starts in April, returned with a dominant performance.  He did not allow a hit until the fifth inning and struck out six while walking two.  Sceroler retired 13 straight Lansing batters over one stretch and earned the win to improve to 2-2 with the Dragons.  Sceroler also made seven starts at Billings, going 2-2 with the Mustangs.

Mac Sceroler handcuffed Lansing allowing 2 hits


The Dragons collected 16 hits in the game, including three hits apiece for Jose Garcia, Alejo Lopez, J.D. Williams, and Raul Wallace. Lorenzo Cedrola added two more.


The Dragons took a 1-0 lead in the second inning when Williams tripled and scored on Wallace’s infield single.  Cedrola added a two-run single in the third to make it 3-0, and Lopez was hit by a pitch with the bases loaded in the fourth to force in a run and give the Dragons a 4-0 lead.  In the sixth, Lopez lined an RBI double to left-center to bring in one run, and two batters later, Hendrik Clementina doubled to drive in Lopez and make it 6-0.


Sceroler was replaced by Ryan Nutof to start the seventh inning, and Nutof struggled to throw strikes.  He gave up a hit and walked three including one that forced in the first Lansing run of the day.  Nutof was replaced by Miguel Aguilar with the bases loaded and two outs, and Aguilar walked the first batter he faced to force in the second run of the inning before Ryan Noda lined out hard to second base to end the inning.


The Dragons responded with a two-run single from Garcia in the bottom of the seventh to make it 8-2 and close out the scoring. Aguilar was credited with a save, working the final two and one-third innings and allowing one hit but no runs.

John Carroll Blue Streaks picked to finish 2nd in 2018 OAC Football Polls



Rick Finotti

The Ohio Athletic Conference had its annual Football Media Day last Thursday in Canton, Ohio and the John Carroll University Blue Streaks are predicted to finish second in the league standings by both the coaches and media.

In the coaches poll, Mount Union received 81 votes including nine of ten first place votes. John Carroll was next in line with 73 votes and one first place tally.

The order was the same in the media poll, with Mount Union taking in 310 votes and all 31 first place marks. John Carroll was second with 274 tallies.

Head Coach Rick Finotti returns for his second season at the helm of the Blue Streaks, who are coming off a 2017 campaign which produced a 6-4 record overall and a 6-3 mark (second place tie) in the Ohio Athletic Conference. While the team has added new faces at both the offensive and defensive coordinator positions, there is more of a sense of familiarity coming into 2018. Eight starters on offense and eight starters on defense return, as do both the punter and kicker.

“This is a veteran group, so our expectations are high,” said Finotti while speaking at the Hall of Fame podium. “Competition has been a big part of our off season. Whether it be competition in the weight room, in the classroom, in service opportunities … guys have been stepping up and challenging themselves and their teammates. I have been really impressed with their approach and their attitude.”

Other 2017 Highlights for John Carroll Football and head coach Finotti:

-First career win came against Baldwin Wallace, 24-21 in the Cuyahoga Gold Bowl.
-Coached Mason McKenrick to Gene Slaughter Award for Best Linebacker in OAC.

-Five players earning Academic All-OAC.

Muskingum, under new coach Eric Ieuter, looking to move up in 2018 OAC Football race



Eric Ieuter

The Muskingum University football team, under the direction of first-year head coach Erik Ieuter, will look to challenge for an upper-tier spot in their 2018 Ohio Athletic Conference campaign.

With the return of a talented veteran-laden squad, combined with a strong recruiting class, Coach Ieuter will have plenty of options to field a potent team.

Ieuter, an effective, championship-winning coach with a record of success and student achievement at every level, has instilled a new energy and commitment to the Fighting Muskie program. Ieuter’s winning vision for the Muskies will be spearheaded by a strong group of 30 returning letterwinners which include sophomore quarterback Brody Hahn, senior tight end Granger Long, sophomore offensive lineman TJ Boyd, senior defensive lineman Staci Wilson, senior linebacker Brandon Schon, and sophomore defensive back Brian Brown.

Hahn led the Muskie offense last season en route to setting numerous school marks. Hahn set marks for passing yards in season (2,026), pass completions in a season (177), pass attempts in a season (326), total offense for a season (2,396 – 2,026 pass/370 rush) and tied the record for touchdown passes in a season (14). Furthermore, he became the first-ever Muskie to amass 400 yards of total offense in a game with his 427-yard performance (364 passing/63 rushing) at Otterbein.
Long was second on the team with 38 receptions for 361 yards and three touchdowns. He will enter his final season having amassed 90 catches for 885 yards and six scores.
Boyd helped anchor the offensive line which allowed the Muskies to churn out 324.2 yards and 18.6 points per game.
Wilson, Schon, and Brown all return to lead the Muskie defense.
Wilson, a Second Team All-OAC honoree, finished last season with 39 tackles, 4.5 tackles for a loss, one sack, and one fumble recovery.
Brown led the defensive secondary with 47 tackles and ranked second in the OAC with six interceptions which included a career-high two against Wilmington.
Muskingum opens the season on Saturday, September 1, at Waynesburg. The Muskies begin Ohio Athletic Conference play at Ohio Northern on Saturday, September 8. Muskingum’s home-opener is slated for Saturday, September 15, against Marietta in the annual Shriners Game in McConagha Stadium.

Mount Union continues to be the team to beat in annual OAC Football Polls



Mount Union Picked at OAC Football Preview as Preseason Favorite Austintown, OH – Mount Union, under the direction of sixth-year Head Coach Vince Kehres, was picked in both the preseason media and coaches’ polls to win the Ohio Athletic Conference (OAC) football title in 2018. The preseason polls were released today at the OAC Football Media Preview, held at the Pro Football Hall of Fame in Canton, Ohio.

Mount Union received 31 of 31 first place votes (310 points) in the media poll and nine of 10 first place votes (81 points) in the coaches’ poll. Head coaches do not vote for their own teams in the balloting. The Purple Raiders climbed back to the top of NCAA Division III football in 2017 winning its 28th OAC title and a record 13th national championship. The Purple Raiders challenge to stay on top falls to the return of 12 starters and 50 returning letterwinners in 2018. “We appreciate the respect that coaches and the media in the OAC have for our program,” commented head coach Vince Kehres. “We also know that playing in this conference is a tremendous challenge week in and week out.”

The Raiders play five home and five away games starting Saturday, Sept. 1 with a first-ever meeting with Rose-Hulman (Ind.) at 7 p.m.
