TCU stops Jordan 13 Apr 12

The red hot Jordan Hubmen hit an icy match that skidded into the team’s first loss against the Tri-City United Titans. Right from the start Jordan seemed uneasy in their first away game of the season. Ten days of rest for Jordan starting pitcher Nate Beckmen lead to a sporadic showing, while TCU starter Jared Schlosser had a solid outing that held to two runs.

TCU got on the board in the first with Dalton Zeug and Austin Buss crossing home on three Jordan errors. Nate Beckmen would tighten things up in the second and third, but the new location would tip the balance. Memorial Park in Montgomery has a deep backfield, quite possibly the deepest in the conference and a catcher needs to ensure that nothing gets behind because runners will have the advantage. This was proven in the fourth when a few key pitches got loose and were sent behind Jordan Goracke advancing Nathan Rosier and Justin Bastyr to scoring position, pitches later they were home.

Jared Schlosser gets the win as the TCU Titans tally 7 runs, 8 hits, 2 errors and move to 3-1. Nate Beckmen falls to 1-1 with the Hubmen at 2-1 getting 2 runs, 6 hits with 4 errors. Friday Jordan travels to Waseca. TCU has the weekend to rest before taking on Le Sueur-Henderson.
