Schnaible Powers A's


Mason SchnaibleZach Olson


Mason Schnaible homered and delivered a strong night on the mound, leading the A's to a 5-4 win over the Sacred Heart Saints on Wednesday night in Sacred Heart.

Schnaible (1-0) went 8 1/3 innings, allowing four runs - two earned - on ten hits.

Zach Olson got the A's on the board in the top of the third when he hit a RBI double to score Alex Thompson. Schnaible then followed with a two-run home run, his second in as many games, to give the A's a 3-0 lead.

After Sacred Heart got a run back in the fifth, the A's added on two more insurance runs in the top of the eighth when Ryan Schwagel delivered a two out single, scoring Olson and Schnaible.

Those extra runs proved to be important as the Saints got one run back in the bottom of the eighth, and then put together a furious rally in the bottom of the ninth.

With the A's leading 5-2, Schnaible was chased after an error, walk and double cut the A's lead to 5-3 with runners on second and third and one out.

Olson, the A's closer, was brought into the game, and a passed ball cut the lead to just 5-4. Olson did his job however, getting a ground out and holding the runner on third for the second out, and then getting another grounder to end the game.

The A's improved to 5-1 on the season and a perfect 4-0 in the Corn Belt League.

Next up for the A's are the Milroy Yankees on Friday in Milroy. First pitch is scheduled for 7:30 pm.
