It was an afternoon marked with firsts at Memorial Park in Montgomery. The new Tri-City United cooperative consisting of Montgomery, Lonsdale and Le Center had their first home game, visiting Watertown-Meyer Royals played their first Minnesota River Valley Conference game, and TCU got its first home win.
On the mound for the home team was Jared Schloesser, 4 strikeouts and 1 run through 6 2/3 innings, things started off rocky with the Royals taking a quick lead in the top of the first, the Titans tying latter in the inning. Separation didn’t come until the 2nd when centerfielder Greg Rynda hit a 2 RBI double off the left field fence. More runs would trickle in for TCU who would finish with 8; Watertown-Meyer could not get things started at the plate and would be unable to capitalize on opportunities afforded to them from various TCU mistakes which would hold them at one.
Trevor Turek took to the mound in the 6th for the last out to close out the game. For the Titans Nathan Rosier went 2 for 3 and Rydna was 3 for 4 with 2 RBI’s and a double. The Titans get a few days rest before Belle Plaine on Monday. Meanwhile, Watertown-Meyer faces Sibley East the same day.
