RedHawks Beat Schaumburg 3-1

The Fargo-Moorhead RedHawks defeated the Schaumburg Flyers 3-1 on a chilly Wednesday night at Newman Outdoor Field. Fargo-Moorhead has taken the first three games of the four-game set.
The RedHawks (12-5) struck first in the fourth inning. Fargo-Moorhead shortstop Zach Penprase walked and stole second base. Shaumburg catcher Richard Mercado’s throw to second on the play sailed into center field, allowing Penprase to advance to third. The RedHawks’ Nic Jackson then drove in Penprase on a ground out to second base.
The Flyers (5-14) answered in the top half of the sixth inning. Second baseman Joe Pauley led off with a walk. Looking to put Pauley in scoring position, Schaumburg manager Mike Busch gave shortstop Travis Brown the sign to bunt. Brown laid a gorgeous bunt down the first base line which was fielded by RedHawks starting pitcher T.J. Stanton. Stanton double-clutched while waiting for second baseman Carlo Cota to cover first and threw the ball into right field, allowing Pauley to come all the way around from first to score.
Fargo-Moorhead cleanup hitter Jesse Hoorelbeke led off the seventh inning with a line drive double off of the wall in left-center field. Hoorelbeke advanced to third on a ground ball from catcher Alan Rick and then scored on a double by Cota. Cory Patton then singled off of Flyers reliever Josh Giles, giving the RedHawks all the offense they would need.
Fargo-Moorhead’s T.J. Stanton got his first start of the season, allowing one unearned run in six innings of work. He walked one and struck out two. Casey Hoorelbeke (2-0) got the win for the RedHawks, throwing 1.2 innings in relief. For the second night in a row, Fargo-Moorhead’s Donnie Smith collected a save.
Schaumburg’s Alain Quijano (0-3) only allowed two earned runs on five hits while pitching 6.1 innings, but was still saddled with the loss. For the third consecutive night, the Flyers simply could not muster any offense. Schaumburg has only managed to score four runs through the first three games of the series.
Fargo-Moorhead’s Nic Jackson saw his 14-game hitting streak snapped.
The two teams will meet again tomorrow night to wrap up their four game series. Dustin Glant (2-1) will get the start for Schaumburg while Northern League strikeout leader Scott Fogelson (3-0)will take the hill for Fargo-Moorhead.
