Reds Winless in Dickinson




The Reds traveled to Dickinson, N.D. this past weekend for a four-day tournament, but were unable to pull out a single win.

Reds 0, Bismarck 8

The Glasgow Reds faced Bismarck in their first game of the tournament on the afternoon of Thursday, June 23. Bismarck snagged an early lead with four runs in the first inning and never let up, scoring three more runs in the third inning and one run in the fourth. The game ended after the top of the fifth inning as the Reds were unable to balance the score. Brett Glaser was the losing pitcher for the Reds as he logged four innings on the mound. Glasgow finished the game with three errors.

Reds 0, Wahoo, Neb. 6

In a late morning game on Friday, June 24, the Reds faced the team from Wahoo Neb. – who traveled 703 miles to compete. It was another disappointing loss for Glasgow, with the Reds only managing two hits in 23 at-bats. Defensively, the Reds recorded four errors. Kasey Seyfert worked on the mound for most of the game, striking out three.

Reds 2, Manitoba 4

In likely their best match-up of the weekend, and the first of two games for the day, the Reds faced Manitoba Saturday, June 25. Manitoba came out with an early lead with four runs in the first inning, but Glasgow stepped up their defense and denied them any runs for the remainder of the game. Tyler Hersom did some work on the mound, allowing only one hit and no earned runs. In the three innings he pitched, Hersom walked none and struck out one. Unfortunately, despite finishing with five errors in the game, Manitoba was able to prevent the Reds from scoring again.

Reds 4, Miles City Outlaws 13

In their fourth game of the weekend, the Reds contributed to their own demise with seven errors in the contest. The game started of good for the Reds offensively when Bryce Legare got on base with a single in the first inning, and made it home off an RBI double from Kevin McDonald. Chase Guttenberg did his part with two runs, but Miles City performed better by bringing in eight runs.

Guttenberg also shared the duties on the mound with Alex Fransen, who took the loss for the Reds. Seyfert did what he could to spark a rally in the fourth inning, with an RBI single – one of three RBIs for him in the game, but the Outlaws snuffed the comeback with six runs of their own.

Reds 2, Billings Blue Jays 10

Sunday morning, June 26, the Reds met the Billings Blue Jays on the diamond for their last game of the tournament. It was an error-free game for both teams, but the Blue Jays dominated offensively, with 10 runs off 12 hits in the contest. Glasgow was unable to answer the slew of runs by the Blue Jays, scoring only two runs in the third inning. Legare got on base after being hit by a pitch and advanced to second off a single from Korbin Cole. Kevin McDonald joined the boys on the diamond after being walked himself, and Legare scored on a passed ball. Fransen brought home another run when he singled to left field and advanced Cole. Nik Herman pitched the first inning of the game, but was replaced by Wersal after facing 11 batters.

The Reds will host Laurel this weekend with games on Saturday, July 2.
