Johnson's cycle leads Babe Ruth past Edgeley (plus local digest)

July 4, 2012

The Valley City Babe Ruth baseball team offense was a bit more sluggish in its first game Monday than coach Lance Lukes would have liked it to be, but later recovered for the second game of a double header with Lisbon.
But in Tuesday’s 20-2 district win in Edgeley, there were no early jitters.
The team put together at least three runs in each inning, ending the game after five, and had 15 total hits.
“It’s always tough coming from a game like Monday,” Lukes said. “There can be times where players get set in looking for the walks and stop being aggressive at the plate.”

Solid pitching gets Babe Ruth past Lisbon

July 3, 2012

When times get tough for Valley City Babe Ruth pitcher Nate Rodriguez, his main goal is to avoid getting in a rut mentally.
“What (head coach) Lance (Lukes) always tells me is to keep my head up and keep it clear,” Rodriguez said.
It was an outlook that came in handy in an 11-1 win Monday in the first game of a double header sweep over Lisbon.
After getting the first three batters out in succession, Rodriguez finished the next three innings with the bases loaded for the final out, but allowed only one run to score.
