Neher shuts down Cossell's in Kasey tourney opener

DuPay no-hits defending-champ McPike in Hague win.

Southside’s Neher Insurance opened the David A. Kasey Memorial Youth Baseball Tournament play with a 5-2 victory over Northwestern league champion Cossell’s Saturday at Northside.

Neher improved to 18-3 on the season.

“I think our kids are focused and bringing good attitudes to the diamond,” Neher manager Geremy Miller said. “Our team came out confident and played very good ball, and we’re hoping that continues. With our kids, we’ve been preaching attitude all season long. If we show up with the right attitude we can beat anyone, but at the same time, we can be beat if we don’t come with the right attitude. We want to take it one game at a time.”

Blue Thompson picked up the win on the hill for Neher, striking out seven in four innings of work. He combined with Olivia Branch on a two-hitter, as Branch struck out a pair in two innings of relief work.

Braydon Harris’ first-inning RBI double put Neher on the board early. The squad then broke out for four runs in the second inning on an RBI double from Dalton Pitner and a two-RBI double from Payton Gibson.

Branch, Payton Sexton and Harris each went 2 for 3 at the plate.

Evan Shaw took the loss on the hill for Cossells, He allowed five runs on 10 hits in five innings of labor. He struck out seven.

“I’m happy we came ready to hit [Saturday], because Evan Shaw is a very good pitcher,” Miller said.

Landon Titus had a double for Cossell’s.
