Theron Schlomer was the starting pitcher and went four innings. He gave up two hits, walked one batter and struck out nine. Nelson pitched the final inning, striking out the final three Cusick batters.

Game two on Saturday brought more of the same, as Tigers continued to hit, and Cusick's outfielders had trouble finding the ball. Theron Schlomer's two hits resulted in four RBIs, and King's only hit was a double which brought two RBIs. Five Tiger batters hit doubles in this game, King, Schlomer, Camden Weber, Nelson and Eric Johnston.

Tim DeWulf was the starting pitcher in game two. He faced 16 batters in four innings, gave up one run, walked two and struck out seven. Camden Weber came on in relief and closed out the game after walking one batter and striking out three.

Marcus King is not only a threat at bat. While serving as catcher, he was responsible for put-outs of the most opposing players, 12 in the first game and 10 in the second, making him deserving of the Athlete of the Week award this week.
