They should have brought Cheesecurds...

May 7th, 2:00pm 2017 - Hastings MN

The Ellsworth Hubbers refused to bring cheese curds and ultimately, it cost them the game. Spencer Diedrich (#18) was heard in the dugout talking to Manager Shawn Matson (#2) after the Hubbers tied it up in the 8th, "They didn't bring the curds, you gotta let me pitch Moon, you just gotta!"  Matson did just that. He put Diedrich in to start the extra innings and he went a quick 1,2,3, striking out the final batter he faced. In the bottom of the 10th, Diedrich was pacing, hoping to finish his revenge when Ben Bundschu grounded into a 5-3 out. The next batter Jordan Jeske (#17) hit a routine grounder to the second baseman, it looked like it was going to be an easy out, but he bobbled the ball in transition allowing Jeske to reach on an error. The DH, Jaryd Marks (#39) hit a hard line drive to left off the 3rd pitch he saw and advanced Jeske to 2nd. That's when Diedrich said, "I'll teach you not to share your cheese curds." The first pitch he saw was almost a carbon copy of Marks' hit. A hard line drive to left and Jeske the Jet took off from 2nd. The throw home was made as Jeske was still 50 feet out, but it was wide to the first base side, so Jordan scored easily. Game over, Hawks win 7-6 in walk-off fashion in the 10th.

When approached after the game, the Hubbers manager simply said, "We'll bring cheese curds next time." and he refused to comment any further.

Hawks Fall in season opener

May 5th, 2017 - Hastings, MN.

"Sorry folks, we won't be selling beer this year at Veterans park, We lost the opener" - Brian Schommer

Yes, it's true, The Hawks fell to the Hawks 6-3 on an opening night that started out with an amazing performance by the Pinecrest Elementary Choir singing the National Anthem. Sgt Nathan Meszaros of the MN National Guard delivered a strike for the ceremonial first pitch of the season, and the weather was PERFECT!

The Spring Valley Hawks spoiled the opening night for Hastings with a long, 4 run inning in the 4th. Hawks pitcher Nick Horsch (#9) said after the game "My legs just ran out of gas, I should have known better with it being the first game of the year." His defense did not help him out with a couple costly errors. "It's our first game, unfortunately, mistakes are gonna happen, you just hope they don't cost you much." Skipper Shawn Matson said after the game. Until the 4th, Horsch was pitching great. He only allowed 2 hits, both in the 2nd with one of them rocketing off his left knee. "It didn't feel good, that's for sure," he said in the post game interview, "But it's fine now."

Hastings had the early lead after Jordan Jeske (#17) scored from third on a line drive by Spencer Diedrich (#18). That play was set up when Ben Bundschu (#25) hit a lead off single up the middle, Jeske reached on a fielder's choice, beating out the Double Play, then advanced to third on a single to right by Jaryd Marks (#39)

Horsch finished the game with 3 strike-outs, 1 walk, 2 earned runs on 56 pitches.
Diedrich handled the middle innings, with 6k's, 3 walks and no earned runs on 68.
Marks closed out the game stiking out 3, walking none and allowing no earned runs.

Offensive notables for Hastings:
Curt Caneff went 3 for 4 with 1 RBI and 1 run scored.
Diedrich was 3 for 5, 1 RBI and 1 run scored.
