The SCTCC Cyclone baseball team improved to 7-5 on the season with a pair of wins over Hibbing on Friday at Dick Putz Field.


The Cyclones found themselves in a great pitching dual on Friday, in game one of their double hitter with the Cardinals. The Cyclones starting pitcher, a sophomore right hander, Austin Gohl from Sartell-St. Stephen High School. He threw a complete game, he gave up just one hit, issued four walks and he recorded six strikeouts.

The Cyclones had just three base runners on two hits and a walk, this included a home run and a double. Logan Aleshire, sophomore from St. Cloud Tech High School, went 1 for 3 with a home run and he earned a walk. This was a walk off home run in the bottom of the 7th inning. If there was any doubt by anyone, Logan’s flip of the bat when he hit it, was certain assurance it was gone. Joselito Baez Jr., a freshman from Everglades High School of Miramar, Florida went 1 for 3 with a double.

The Cardinals starting pitcher, Joey Fräcke threw the whole game. He had a very good pitching performance, he gave up two hits, issued one walk, surrendered one run and he recorded six strikeouts. Derrick Calvillo went 1 for 3 with two stolen bases and Ray Santorum earned two walks. Evan Booth and Carson Dobias both earned one walk.


The Cyclones got their bats going in the game 2 of their doubleheader with the Cardinals. They collected eleven hits, including three home runs and a double. That was more than enough support for the Cyclones pitching staff, with the left handed, red head, Hunter Malachek starting on the mound. Hunter is a graduate of Maple Lake High School, he threw five innings, he scattered six hits, he issued a pair of walks, surrendered one run and he recorded three strikeouts.
