WHITE BEAR LAKE, Minn. – With two chuckers locked in a pitcher’s duel, someone had to step up and crack through four innings of a scoreboard showing nothing but goose eggs.

Fredrico Olheiser, batting No. 3 in the order, did just that.

In the bottom of the fifth with Patrick Brackley aboard by way of a walk, Olheiser blasted a triple driving in Brackley for the only run of the game, as the Ostrander (MN) Norsemen pulled out a 1-0 victory over the Rice Lake Orangemen of Wisconsin in the opening game of the Tim Cup Challenge, Friday night, at the Village Sports Bar At The Stadium ball diamonds in White Bear Lake.

The lone run broke up the duel between the Orangemen’s Nicolas Seibenlist (0-1), and Norsemen’s Sisco Sabate (1-0). Both pitchers allowed just three hits each, while Seibenlist struck out 12 and Sabate 11.

The Orangemen threatened in the third and fourth innings with runners on third base, but Sabate came away unscathed with an inning-ending groundout and strikeout.

JAMO’S 2, TIN CUP 1

Jamo’s used three pitchers, and got a game-winning hit from Jason Shouick to upset the ISC’s No. 13 ranked Tin Cup in the second featured game Friday night.

Michael Jamison hurled three innings, then gave way to Marek Maly and Joel Goodall, who each finished up with two innings apiece to best the strong outing of Tin Cup’s Joel Cooley (0-1) who went the distance, firing a four-hitter.

But one of those hits would come back to beat him.

In the bottom of the sixth with the game deadlocked at 1-1, Shouick whacked a Cooley offering for a triple, driving in Goodall, who singled, for the game winner in Jamo’s 2-1 victory.

Jamo’s took the early lead in the bottom of the first on Maly’s RBI single, only to see Tin Cup knot the score in the second when the Marchio’s – son Dominic and father Dave batting five and six in the order – teamed up to force the tie.

Dominic Marchio peppered Jamison for a triple and David Marchio got just enough of the bat on the ball to force a ground ball to second base that allowed Dominic to cross home plate safely.

Tin Cup collected five hits, one each from Yusef Davis, Matias Minigutti, Sam Nieman, Dominic Marchio and Gonzalo Masmu.

Jamo’s four hits came from Maly, Goodall, Shouick and Michael Marrero.

Goodall (1-0) picked up the win, allowing one hit, no runs, with four strikeouts over the final two innings. Maly, the middle reliever, went two innings, didn’t allow any hits and struck out one. Jamison allowed just one earned run on four hits with three strikeouts.
