New Haven, Mo -- New Haven has struggled this year after losing senior pitcher Julie Scheer, who had pitched every game for the Shamrocks last year.  Coming into this year’s season the Rocks number one pitcher, sophomore Stephanie Scheer, number two pitcher, junior Kierstin Monzyk, both with no experience pitching at the varsity level.

Last night may have been the game Scheer got over that hump and gave a glimpse of her potential in the years to come.

Rebecca Glaser’s bat was smoking hot going 3-4 and knocking in 4 RBI’s.  Kayla Oetterer went 3-4 and knocking 2 RBI’s leading the Rocks to an 11-7 win over Wellsville.

Scheer went 7 innings striking out two, giving up seven runs on 14 hits and no walks.

Scheer ran into some trouble in the third giving up four runs and two more in the fourth putting Wellsville ahead 7-3.  The bottom of the fifth after Scheer had set down the side, the Rocks went on a scoring spree adding four runs and taking the lead 8-7.

Scheer with the help of her defense, settled the zone finishing the game pitching three scoreless innings ,while the offense went crazy again in the sixth adding four more runs and a win, breaking a three game losing streak.

Coach Tim Scheer said afterwards, “Our girls never gave up, being down 7-3 and coming back to win, really showed their desire to win.  Scheer pitched a good game; she gave up a fare amount of hits but our defense made plays and not comitting an error.  Glaser and Oetterer both had great games at the plate.  I hope we can take this momentum into tomorrow nights games at Owensville, who we had lost to by one run several weeks ago.”

The Rocks will play a conference game at Owensville with the first pitch at 4:30 p.m.
