Pecatonica rolls by Juda late

BLANCHARDVILLE - The No. 1-ranked Pecatonica baseball team ended its regular season with a 20-1 record after a 10-0 win Thursday over Juda.

"It was a 1-0 game going into the fifth inning. Then we just found yet another way to win," Pecatonica head coach Jim Strommen said.

Lee Vlasak scored in the bottom of the first inning for the only run the game would see until the home half of the fifth.

Juda's Beau Benner hit Vlasak (2-for-3) with a pitch with one out the fifth. Milton Kurschner singled and both moved up two bases after a pair of wild pitches.

"(Devin) Jeglum hit a sacrifice fly, then there was a bunt, an error, a bunt, and then Chris Hendrickson and Taylor Berg hit two-run singles," Strommen said.

After another hit-by-pitch, Vlasak jacked a three-run home run to end the game.

Benner allowed eight hits, three earned runs and three walks in 4 2/3 innings.

"That error was really costly. (Juda) would have gotten out of there down just 3-0 and would have had a chance," Strommen said.

Vlasak got the win on the mound for Pecatonica. He allowed just two hits and hit a batter.
