Beloit Royals overwhelm Lincoln-Tri County

 

BELOIT – The Beloit American Legion Post 57 Royals hosted Lincoln-Tri County on Sunday. Beloit continued to roll with a pair of run-rule wins. Game one ended 9-1, and they also won game two by a 10-0 final score. 

In game one, Dubbert picked-up his first of 10 RBI on the day with a two-run single with Luke Hesting and Caden Emmot on base. The duo had reached on a walk and an error respectively. He then led off the bottom of the third inning with a single and later scored on a Caydren Cox RBI single. Michael Peters moved Cox to third with a single, and the runs began to pour in after that.

Ryan Jackson walked and Cox scored on an error to make it a 4-0 game. Braydon Conn then walked to score Peters to up the lead to five. Emmot then reached on an error to score Jackson, and Dubbert walked to score Conn. Beloit was in command 7-0 at the end of three innings.

Dakota Shurts pitched well for Beloit, going five strong innings. He scattered four hits, walked two and struck out six while allowing no earned runs.

Lincoln did pick up an un-earned run in the fourth, and Beloit finished things off in run-rule, walk-off fashion in the bottom of the fifth. Nick Meier poked a lead-off single to right, and Hesting walked. Meier later scored from third on a passed ball. Dubbert then came back to the plate and ended the scoring, and the game, as he started it with an RBI single and a 9-1 final score. He finished the game a perfect 3-3 at the plate with four RBI and a run scored. Yet, he was far finished.

In game two, Dubbert took the mound and dominated his guests. He combined with Carson Cox to no-hit Lincoln over four innings. Dubbert went three innings as he struck out eight batters and walked three. Cox came on in relief to pitch a perfect fourth to finish things off.

Beloit got out to another hot start at the plate thanks to a three-run homer from Dubbert. The deep shot to left scored Hesting who singled to lead-off the game and Emmot who reached on an error. Fast forward to the bottom of the third when Emmot was hit by a pitch. Dubbert came back to the plate and hit another blast to left, his second home run of the game, for a 5-0 lead.

Meier kept things going with a one-out walk. He advanced to second and then third on consecutive passed balls and scored on a sac-fly to right by Smith. The Royals kept things rolling in the bottom of the fourth. Caydren Cox walked, Jared Mosher singled and Hesting scored Cox with an RBI single to center. Emmot walked to load the bases. Dubbert then picked up RBI number six in the game with an infield single to score Mosher to balloon the lead to 8-0.

Carson Cox flew out to center for the first out of the inning, but picked up an RBI as Hesting crossed the plate to bump the advantage to 9-0. Later, with two outs, Smith walked to load the bases for the third time in the inning. Peters came to the plate and hit a walk-off single to left, which scored Emmot, and Beloit came away with the 10-0 win.

Dubbert finished the day a perfect 6-6 at the plate with four singles, two homers, a walk, 10 RBI and three runs scored. The Post 57 Royals are 15-7 on the season going into a pair of road games with Concordia which were scheduled for Wednesday night.
