The Charles City Comet baseball team was in non-conference action last night in Osage as they took on the Green Devils.  The Comets managed just five hits off of Green Devil pitcher Caleb Bushbaum as Bushbaum led his team to a 7-2 victory.  Jordan Kapping had two hits for the Comets and Nate Lasher also had two hits and scored both Charles City runs.  Nathan Bushbaum led the Osage offense with three hits and three runs batted in.  The loss is the Comets’ fifth in a row and they now sit at 6-9 overall this season while Osage improves to 5-12 on the season.  The Charles City baseball team will be in action again tonight in a Northeast Iowa Conference match-up with Waverly and Osage plays in a Top of Iowa Conference game tonight at North Butler.

The Charles City Comet softball team was also in a non-conference road game last night as they were in Saint Ansgar taking on the Saints.  The Comet offense was hot last night as they were able to knock off the Saints 13-6.  Shae Etherington, Payton Reams and Ciana Sonberg each had three hits and three runs scored on the night with one of Reams’ hits being a home run and Tayler Schmidt picked up the win as she pitched all seven innings and gave up three earned runs on five hits and struck out two.  The win gives the Comet softball team an overall record of 15-6 and they will be in action again tonight at home against BCLUW.  The Saints fall to 9-10 this season and will play again tonight at Nashua-Plainfield.  You can tune into the Comet softball game tonight right here on KCHA starting with a pregame at about 7:15 and first pitch is scheduled for 7:30.

The Osage Green Devil softball team was in Mason City last night for a non-conference match-up against the Mohawks.  Destiny Thompson had two hits for the Green Devils and Joslyn Perrin and Kourtney Chambers each had an RBI, but it wasn’t enough as Mason City won the game 7-2.  The Osage defense committed five errors on the night which the Mohawks took full advantage of in the win.  The Green Devil softball team falls to 10-8 overall this season and will be in Top of Iowa Conference action tonight at North Butler.

The Saint Ansgar Saints baseball team was in action last night in Clear Lake as they were tasked to take on the second-ranked Lions.  Saint Ansgar came out swinging and scored two runs in the first and one in the second to take a 3-1 lead after two innings.  The Saints would add a run in the fifth to make it 4-1, but Clear Lake came right back with two in the fifth and one in the sixth to tie the game at four heading into the seventh and final inning.  Saint Ansgar pushed across a run in the top half of the seventh, but two errors on the last play of the game gave the Lions two runs and the walk-off win.  Ethan Mayer pitched six innings for the Saints and had seven strikeouts in the loss and Collin Kramer had two runs batted in to lead the Saint Ansgar offense.  The Saints are now 17-4 this season and will take on Nashua-Plainfield tonight on the road.

The North Butler Bearcat baseball team dominated Belmond-Klemme last night in non-conference action as they shut out the Broncos 12-0 in five innings.  The win improves the Bearcat’s overall record to 3-9 this season and they will return to Top of Iowa Conference action tonight at home against Osage.
