The Capital Crusaders baseball team dropped a pair of games last Friday to Ohio Northern in Columbus.

Capital lost the opener 13-12 and 16-4 in the finale. The Crusaders (7-11, 0-2 OAC) battled back from a 12-1 deficit in the opener.

Overall, the Capital offense was paced by the duo of freshman Jake Thurman (Westerville, O/Westerville North HS) and junior Zack Byers (Columbus, O./Bishop Hartley HS). Thurman was a combined 3-for-7 with a walk and four RBI’s. Byers finished 3-for-6 with a double, home run, four runs scored and three RBI’s.

In addition, the pair of Marty Assmann (Columbus, O./Bishop Hartley HS) and freshman Brandon Natalie (Bexley, Ohio/Westerville North HS) made their mark at the plate. Assmann scored four runs and drove in three on the day while Natalie went 3-for-7 with a double, home run, walk, three runs scored and two RBI’s.

The Crusaders will return to action at home this Saturday April 10 with a doubleheader against arch-rival Otterbein at Clowson Field beginning at 1 p.m.

Obama throws out first pitch; Nationals get blasted by Phillies

compiled from staff and wire reports

Roy Halladay’s National League debut went just as expected as he had pin-point control striking out nine, allowing six hits, one run in six innings helping his new team, the Philadelphia Phillies to an 11-1 blasting of the Washington Nationals.

Halladay even helped himself at the plate with his second career RBI, on a dribbler that traveled no more than 30 feet in the Phillies five-run fourth inning.

The game was played in our nation’s capital at Nationals Park.

President Barack Obama received a nice thunderous ovation as he took the mound to mark the 100th anniversary of presidential first pitches. The President has admitted that he is not a natural baseball player. The left-hander double-clutched before uncorking a wild wayward delivery that had Nationals third baseman Ryan Zimmerman standing and stretching his arm to make the catch.

Obama wore a Nationals jacket but showed his loyalty to his favorite baseball team, by wearing a White Sox hat.

On April 14, 1910, when William Howard Taft became the first president to take part in a first-pitch ceremony. Back during that time, Washington was an American League team and they won that opening game.

President Obama didn’t bring any luck to the Nationals on Monday. The 1910 Washington team wasn’t very good, and the 2010 National League Nationals team started off this season looking like the same team that has lost 100-plus games in 2008 and 2009.


* The Phillies broke a streak of four consecutive opening day losses.

* Nationals 3b Ryan Zimmerman was awarded his 2009 Gold Glove and Silver Slugger awards before the game. He and Outfielder Matt Kemp of the Los Angeles Dodgers were the only National Leaguers to win both last year.

Duke beat Butler 61-59 for the national championship Monday night, a win that wasn’t locked up until after the buzzer sounded, when Gordon Hayward’s  halfcourt, 3-point heave for the win barely missed to leave most of the 70,000 fans in Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis was rooting for Butler, very disappointed for not having pulled off  the upset.

Kyle Singler scored 19 points and Brian Zoubek rebounded Hayward’s miss with 3.6 seconds left.

The Blue Devils, 35-5, who snapped Butler’s 25-game winning streak and gave Duke its long-awaited fourth national title back to Durham, North Carolina.

The “Big Three”, Singler, Jon Scheyer (15 points) and Nolan Smith (13) finally won college basketball’s coveted  trophy for coach Mike Krzyzewski, his first championship since 2001 and the fourth overall, tying Coach K with Adolph Rupp for second place on the all-time list.

Butler University finishes at 33-5 and showed the entire nation that the Horizon League is a quality league with good programs and solid basketball.
