Wile E. Coyote (Ryan Yuha) Finally Catches The Road Runners in a No-Hitter
Jun 2, 2013, 9:26 am

In the first game of the legendary Heisler tournament, the A's sent Ryan Yuha to the hill to face the Camrose Roadrunners of the Powerline League. The two leagues don't see a lot of each other during the year, so it was nice to see new competition in a game the Road Runners twitter account coined "The Enrights vs. The Banacks".


Yuha was able to cruise through most of the game, locating his fastball and changeup fairly well. Ryan's perfect game was broken up early on a routine fly ball to Nic Ronsko in left field, that should have ended the 4th inning. With only 9 players on the roster due to Slo Pitch and work commitments, Ronsko added "its a good thing Carter (12yr old son of Skip), wasn't on the roster today after that play."


Rosalind batted around in the 2nd inning, as they were hitting holes and gaps between the Road Runners defence. Steve Enright claimed to have gone 5 for 5, with 4 RBI's, but we'll have to check the official scorebook for tampering.


The A's move on to play the Provost Combine Pilots in the semifinals at 1pm on Sunday. The Combine Pilots are hosting the Western Senior 'AA' event in August, so they will be a tough test early in the 2013 season.

Two Out Rally in the 6th as the A's Defeat Killam
May 30, 2013, 12:17 pm

Kevin 'Skip' McDonald channeled his inner RA Dickey and had his knuckleball dancing last night, as the Athletics improved to 2-0 in Battle River league play.  Not only did the veteran knuckballer pick up the win, but he also delivered the tying RBI on a 2 out double in the 6th inning.  On his first pitching performance of the year, "we worked the outside of the plate well, and sprinkled more knuckleballs later on.  The weather wasn't great for throwing knuckles, but a couple of them had solid movement."


The Killam Braves sent Barry Truss to the mound, and his curveball was as tight as his new florescent cleats.  Truss kept the A's off balance for much of the game, which included a few solid defensive plays in the outfield.


Brayden Benson got the start for the A's, and worked 5 1/3 giving up 4 earned.  The young local product kept the ball down, and worked quickly.  His defence behind him turned two double plays, keeping the ball game tied until the 5th inning.


The A's rally started in the 6th inning with 2 out and an 0-2 count on Adam Enright.  Two singles, and a walk later, Skip was able to deliver a two run double to tie the game.  The A's went ahead on a single over the shortstop's head.  Skip added, "late in the game we showed some patience and the bats got going against a tough Killam pitcher.  Overall, a very nice win early in the season."

Rivalry Renewed: A's Win Tight Battle vs. Cardinals
May 27, 2013, 11:46 am

Steve Enright pitched a solid complete game, and his defence behind him made some highlight reel plays for the Athletics to win an excellently played ball game vs. Heisler in the Spring Lake Final. Enright added, "From the first pitch of the game, I knew our defence was sharp, so I pitched to contact and let the boys behind me do all the hard work."  Steve has now pitched 16 innings this year, while only allowing 2 walks.


The outfield of Mark Gjesdal, Tyrel Herder and Nic Ronsko each made game saving catches to highlight one of the best defensive games in recent memory.  Ronsko got behind a fly ball to right field and made a strong throw home to get Todd Steil from scoring the tying run in the bottom of the 5th inning.


Rookie Brayden Benson drove in the only run of the game on a base hit to right field that allowed Tyrel Herder to score.  Benson has been proving to be a solid addition to A's in his first season.

Tyrel Herder and Brayden Benson pitched well, and the bats were connecting as the A's made quick work of the Killam Braves in the semi finals.

A's Rally Late, But Come Up Short vs. Heisler
May 27, 2013, 11:34 am

Mark  Gjesdal made this Rosalind pitching debut against a powerful Heisler team, throwing 3 innings. The newest edition to the A's showed good velocity, which should prove to be a valuable asset to Rosalind's pitching depth.


In the first game of the day, the sun proved to be the biggest challenge for the outfielders on any fly ball.  As a result, Rosalind rallied in the 7th from down 8-3 with 4 runs, but it proved to be too late, as Heisler took game 1 of the season rivalry.
