With Playoff Positioning on the Line, A's Take Down Holden
Jun 20, 2018, 10:11 am

The Athletics (6-4) travelled to Holden to take on the Blue Jays (6-3) with playoff implications already on the line.  It was yet again another scortching hot day in Holden, as all the important games seem to be late in the season.  Both teams are fighting to catch Armena and Edmonton in the standings, while trying to avod the 4 vs 5 play in game.


Rosalind sent ace, Dan Enright to the mound in such an important game.  The right hander was coming off a season best performance against.  Enright pitched well, especially commanding his change up and got a couple really good defensive plays behind him.  Double plays in the 3rd and 4th innings haulted the rallies that the Blue Jays were stringing together.  Enright threw a complete game 7 innings, allowing 1 unearned run, on 9 hits, while striking out 3 and walking one.


Offensively, Adam Enright was crushing the ball on a line in his 3 for 4 effort that narrowly missed going perfect as a hot shot up th middle appeared in the pitchers glove.  Brett Yuha went 2 for 3 with a single and a double and 2 RBI's.  Brayden Benson threw it in high gear on his stand up double.  While 0 for 2, Sheldon Pederson had 3 walks and 4 stolen bases.

New Rivals Beat Rosalind in the Heisler Final
Jun 20, 2018, 10:11 am

After a come from behind win in the first game of the short tournament against the Camrose Roadrunners, the Rosalind A's made up of mostly pick ups, took on the merged Heisler Cardinals and Spring Lake Lakers.  The newly formed team is called The Rivals, and continues to play in the Battle River League, and currently sit at the top of the standings.


Matt Enright got the start against the Rivals, a rare start, but not appearence for Enright.  A few sloppy defensive plays in the field Matt got behind the 8 ball from the get go, and it was just too much to recover from against the Rivals, who had a lot of power and good hitters throughout the line up.

Rag Tag Group of A's Comes Back to Beat Roadrunners
Jun 20, 2018, 10:10 am

With only 3 regulars off the Rosalind roster, a group of pickups and older vets went to the Heisler tournament.  In the first game of the tournament, the A's took on a combined group of mostly Camrose Roadrunners and a few Spring Lake Old Timers.


Ty Twitchell got the start for Rosalind, coming off a bumpy relief apperance, the young right hander was eager to get back on track.  Twitchell had a couple balls drop in just between fielders, and pitched better than the 7 runs allowed would dictate.  Twitchell was still throwing hard late in the game, and gave the A's a chance to win.  In the end, Twitchell pitche a complete game.

Rosalind Can't Slow Down Undefeated Royals
Jun 2, 2018, 11:27 am

After getting back in the win column with a needed win over the young Axemen, the Athletics were on the road to take on the league leading and undefeated Armena Royals.  The A's have had quite the rivalry with the Royals since joining the league in 2015, with both clubs having captured League Championships and a fairly even regular season head to head record.  The Royals had a rebuilding year last season, but have resigned a few veterans with a few talented young additions.


Dan Enright got the start for the Rosalind squad, after a couple of rare relief appearences.  Like the staff ace that Enright has been for a while, Dan pitched really well and gave the A's a chance to win.  A controversial foul ball call in the 4th inning made Enright's final pitching line a bit decieving, but the right hander kept the Royals off balance for the most part with a few in game adjustments and the best change ups that Enright had thrown this season.  Dan went 6 innings, allowing 5 runs, 3 of which were earned, on 7 hits with 2 strikeouts and no walks.


The Rosalind offence continued to struggle, failing to cash in with runners in scoring position, which is quickly becoming a theme this season.  Sheldon Pederson hit a lead off homerun in the second inning to tie the game at one.  The latest acquisition, Kobe Charcun, contined to not show signs of inexperience, as he went 2 for 3 with an RBI.  Overall, the A's left 8 runners on base, 6 of those in scoring position.


The A's travel to Tofield to take on the Braves on Tuesday night, a contest that already has playoff implications early in the season.
