The Rosemount Legion Post 65 baseball team has been short on quality starts during its 2-8-1 start to the season.

It finally got one last Tuesday when Luke Dahl held Apple Valley to two runs and struck out seven over six innings in a 5-2 win at Dakota County Technical College.

“When we have our goodstarting pitchers going we can be pretty competitive. When they’re not pitching we’ve been struggling to put a game together,” Rosemount coach Tom Buske said. “Apple Valley historically has been a pretty good team, so this was a good win for us.”

Post 65 got on the board in the first when leadoff man Jordan Turner singled, stole second and scored on an error. He later capped off a three-run fourth inning with an RBI double that scored Bryce Reinhardt, who drove in the first two runs with a bases-loaded single.

Turner was at it again in the sixth, stroking a leadoff triple and scoring an insurance run on a Haydn Lanoue single.

Jake Schulze relieved Dahl in the seventh and worked around a hit and an error to pick up the save.

The Post 65 pitching staff had a tougher time slowing down Lakeville South’s bats back at DCTC on Thursday. South ripped 16 hits in a 13-2 final.

Reinhardt started on the mound and allowed four runs over the first two innings. South blew the game open with seven more runs in the third against reliever Alex Duff, and tacked on two more in the final two innings against Dennis Reinhardt.

“They were hitting the ball all over the park, pretty much,” Buske said. “It was one of those days where they hit it hard and it went to the gap, or they (didn’t hit it hard) and it blooped over our infielders’ heads.”

Turner had another solid day at the plate, collecting two of Rosemount’s three hits and knocking in a pair of runs. Dahl added a hit and scored a run.
