St. Paul has won one and lost 3 during the last month and their record now stands at 2-5 for the first half of the season. On May 24 FWC outscored St. Paul 2-2 after a 3-3 tie after 2 innings. Shane Spencely, Andy Peterson and Eric Steuer led St. Paul with 2 hits each while Eric drove in 3 of St. Paul’s runs. May 31 found St. Paul’s bats silent as OLA won 15-0 as St. Paul gathered only 5 hits. Jim Neitzel was the only player to get 2 hits. While only 7-0 after 3, OLA scored 8 in the 4 th  to end the game. June 7 found St. Paul getting their second win of the season against The Rock in a 14-13 squeaker, and their second win against The Rock. Maybe we should play them every week. Eric Steuer and Allen McKillips led St. Paul with 3 hits each. Several players gathered 2 hits. Allen drove in 4 runs and Eric 3. After 3 innings the Rock led 8-7. St. Paul then scored 2 in the 4 th , 1 in the 5 th  and 2 in the 6 th  to take a 12-8 lead holding the Rock scoreless. St.  Paul added 2 insurance runs in the top of the 7 th , (which they eventually needed) to lead 14-8. The Rock did score 5 in the bottom of the 7 th  before St. Paul got that final out. Flag Day appeared to favor Blue Sports Ministries as they handed St. Paul a 14-4 defeat. James Wagner and Roger Neitzel were perfect with 2 for 2 nights but St. Paul could only muenster 4 runs, 3 in the last inning. The score was 8-1 after 4 but BSM scored 6 in the 5 th  inning for a 14-4 win. Brad Thompson and Mike Rydberg also gathered 2 hits in 3 at bats. St. Paul’s next game is June 21at 6:30 at Krueger against PGUMC.  Come and enjoy the fun. Schedule is posted next to the church office.
