Brewers win anniversary game

The Glencoe Brewers nipped a four-game losing streak in the bud by defeating the Richmond Royals 5-3 on Saturday, July 7, in a 20th Anniversary rematch of the 1998 Class C state title game.
With several members of the Brewers state title team in attendance at Vollmer Field, Glencoe rallied from a 2-1 deficit with four runs in the sixth inning and held on for the two-run victory.
Starting pitcher Alex Romano went the distance for the Brewers, allowing four hits, a walk and one earned run while striking out two batters.
Tyler Chap and Derek Weber each went 2-for-4 with one run scored for the victors; Weber also logged one of Glencoe’s four RBI.
The Brewers headed out on the road the next day and returned to Crow River Valley League play in a 10-0 loss at Waconia.
Glencoe was doomed nearly from the start after the Lakers scored six runs in the bottom of the first. The Brewers kept their hosts largely in check for the next several innings, allowing Waconia single tallies in fifth and sixth innings before the Lakers ended the game with a two-spot in the eighth.
Brandon Ebert posted the Brewers’ lone extra-base hit with a double in the second inning. Glencoe had six hits total in the game. Colt Trebesch advanced as far as third base in the sixth inning, but the visitors were not able to muster up a run in the contest.
Trebesch started on the hill for the Brewers and took the loss. Of Waconia’s 13 hits, just six came after the first inning. Trebesch allowed one walk while striking out four batters before Aaron Boraas relieved him in the eighth.
With an overall record of 5-12 and a CRVL mark of 4-10, Glencoe returns home to take on Arlington at 7:30 p.m. Wednesday night.
The Brewers are on the road for their next three games after that, playing at Watertown and Cologne on Saturday and Sunday, respectively, and at Belle Plaine Tuesday night. Glencoe’s regular season ends at home against Winsted on Sunday, July 22.
