Superior National Bank-Stanton tops REL Inc. twice to stay unbeaten
STANTON — Superior National Bank-Stanton remained unbeaten in the Twilight League by sweeping a doubleheader from REL Inc. of Mohawk Thursday evening.
Coach Daron Durocher’s team, now 4-0 on the young season, scored 11-0 and 3-0 wins in the twinbill behind the hurling of Trent Keteri and Cole Jepsen.
“Our pitching has been very good so far this season,” Durocher said afterward. “And Trent (Keteri) and Cole (Jepsen) were real sharp tonight.”
REL Inc. stayed competitive in both games.
Keteri and Grant Johnson of REL Inc. were locked in a tight game until the top of the seventh inning. Stanton held a 2-0 lead after tallying twice in the fifth frame
That was when SNB-Stanton strung together six hits and two walks to push across nine runs.
“He (Johnson) was tough to hit for a long time,” Durocher noted. “But we started hitting the ball in the last inning.”
Keteri allowed just two hits and two walks in going the distance.
Jepsen led the winners with three hits. Burr Nettell, Tyler LaDuron, Brady Olson, Josh Koskela and Keteri accounted for two raps each.
In the second game, a homer by LeDuron was the big blow.
Jepsen worked the first five innings, with LaDuron coming on for the final two frames.
REL Inc. dropped to 0-3 on the season
