Trojans baseball improves to 3-1 with Friday victory

The Worthington Trojans baseball team improved to 3-1 on the season by picking up a 6-4 victory over visiting Redwood Valley on Friday.


The Trojans took a 2-0 lead in the first when Manny Saravia led off with a single. Tucker Brandner reached on an error next, and Brandon Bosma and Max Ostrem each followed with RBI singles.


Worthington added two more runs in the bottom of the second when Dawson Svalland and Saravia both singled. Svalland would score on a Redwood Valley error and Saravia scored on an RBI ground out from Bosma.


The Cardinals scored without getting a hit in the third, but the Trojans added on two more in the bottom of the inning on another fielding error and RBI single from Dominic Pavelko. That proved to be more than enough for WHS starting pitcher Cade Grimmius, who pitched 5 1/3 innings and allowed just two hits and three walks while hitting one batter and striking out five. Only one of the four runs scored against Grimmius was earned.


Brandner struck out four batters over the final 1 2/3 innings to earn the save. Austin Gruis also contributed two singles and a double at the plate for WHS, which is next scheduled to host Marshall on Tuesday.



The Worthington Trojans boys tennis team played a meet at St. Peter on Friday and was defeated 6-1.

WHS No. 1 singles player Ian Barber picked up the lone win for the Trojans as he was triumphant in three sets, 6-4, 3-6, 10-6. Each of the other matchups were decided in straight sets with the exception of No. 2 singles, at which Worthington’s Evan Hansberger was defeated 1-6, 6-2, 6-3.

The Trojans host Yellow Medicine East on Monday afternoon.


It was a tough afternoon for the Minnesota West softball team on Saturday as it lost a pair of five-inning games to visiting St. Cloud Tech. Game scores were 13-0 and 24-2.

The Lady Jays are now 3-6 on the season. They’re scheduled to play a doubleheader in Rochester on Tuesday and another two games in Fergus Falls on Friday.


The Minnesota West baseball team was swept in a doubleheader Saturday noon at Century College, losing by scores of 12-2 and 11-6.


The Bluejay bats were limited to six hits in the opening game. In the nightcap, Minnesota West got a single and double each from Haruto Endo and Ridge Inhofer. Axell Espino homered and Fernando Marte had a pair of singles. Nicolas Espitia threw 3 1/3 innings of scoreless relief.
