Big Win For Cornerstone Legion Seniors

It’s been a tough return season for the Cornerstone Legion Baseball Seniors program, but the Albion players were able to take out a lot of frustrations July 10 with a 14-4, five-inning whipping of visiting Central City at the Albion Sports Complex Legion Field.
Parlaying its best offensive output of the summer with solid pitching and defense, Cornerstone jumped out to an early advantage in the contest and was never seriously threatened on the way to its fourth victory of 2012.
Albion got things rolling from the outset. Logan Olson was plunked by a pitch to reach base leading off the bottom of the first inning and Parker Struebing followed with a single. Chris Bode’s sacrifice scored Olson and, following a Colton Mazour single, Cole Luettel doubled to plate Struebing. Jacob Meyer and Trey Sorell added two-out RBI singles later in the frame as Cornerstone took a 5-0 lead.
That advantage grew to 8-0 in the second. Olson was hit by a pitch for the second straight at-bat and Struebing again singled. Mazour’s base hit drove home both runners and Mazour scored on a combination of a stolen base and two passed balls.
Albion continued to plate runs in each of the five innings. Luettel’s two-run single keyed a three-run third, Sorell singled and scored on Struebing’s double, who then scored on a Bode base hit in the fourth inning, and Sorell knocked in Meyer in the bottom of the fifth to end the contest by mercy rule.
Meanwhile, Brett Temme held the visitors in check, allowing just a single run in the third and three in the fourth. He gave up 10 hits, but stranded nine Central City baserunners, including runners at third in the second, fourth and fifth.
Albion batters collected 19 hits with three doubles. Struebing pounded four hits and scored four runs for the hosts. Mazour had three hits and drove in three runs while Meyer and Sorell each added three base hits.
