05/13/2017 - CLASS B BASEBALL: Crouse Fans 11 Batters As Pius X Shuts Out Arlington

By Jeff Motz

Tyler Crouse lived up to his ERA on Saturday night at Sherman Field.

Well, he lowered it.

Coming into the Class B state baseball tournament, Crouse had a 1.44 earned run average, but the Lincoln Pius X senior pitcher managed to throw 6 and 2/3 innings to help the Thunderbolts in a 7-0 shutout of Arlington.

The win puts Pius X in the Class B winner's bracket semifinal Monday at 7pm at Haymarket Park against Omaha Skutt, who beat Elkhorn South 8-6 Saturday evening.

Crouse, who threw 84 pitches, struck out 11 Arlington hitters to improve to 5-2 on the season.  He also got help from his Pius X teammates at the plate.

Riley Ward singled in the second inning, then advanced on a single from Andrew Eskins.  Ward scored on a balk from third when Eskins took off for second, distracting Arlington pitcher Clayton Koch in mid-motion to home plate.  Kaleb Fox singled and drove in Eskins for a 2-0 Thunderbolt lead.

Pius X (20-5) exploded for four runs and four hits in the third inning, highlighted by a three-run double from Ward.

Arlington (15-6) got its first hit of the game in the fourth, with a two-out single from Braden Johnson, who then was picked off at first base by Pius X catcher Jackson Arndt.

The only other hit Crouse allowed was a two-out double to centerfield by Jake Vogt, when Pius X's Dayne Kreikmeier lost the high fly ball in the night sky and misplayed it.

Arlington will play an elimination game Monday against Elkhorn South.
