Rebels roll up 40 runs


“We’ve been struggling at the plate at times and I thought our guys actually came up and hit the ball,” Mullholland said.

Then, the game unraveled. Northeast scored its 13 straight runs in the third inning, aided by several Irish miscues. Three Rebel batters were hit by pitches, another seven were walked. In one sequence, Ben Hildebrandt walked on four pitches, stole second, advanced to third on the throw out attempt, then scored on a wild pitch. The same thing happened for the next batter, Tevin Stoecker, who gave Northeast its 13th run with no batters out in the third.

Game 2 was much of the same story. Andrey Drury gave the Irish their only runs on a gapper to right field in the fourth inning. Trailing 17-2, the game had already gotten out of hand, with four Northeast runs coming on three walks and two wild pitches.

The Northeast stats were gaudy, particularly for Hildebrandt. In Game 2, he racked up three doubles, six RBIs and three runs. Meanwhile, Jared Henfrey dealt three innings with six strikeouts and only three hits allowed.

Northeast travels to North Linn on Saturday for a game before continuing Big East play next week against Bellevue and Lisbon, with a game in between against Davenport North. The Irish (2-12, 0-12 Big East) play at Cedar Valley Christian tonight before hosting Preston in a doubleheader at the Ashford University Field on Monday.

  • Jones leaves UNO program

    Jalen Jones is done with basketball — for now, anyway.
    The 6-foot-5 Clinton High grad who had committed to play for Nebraska-Omaha, has left the program, and according to his Facebook page, has enrolled at Kirkwood Community College in Cedar Rapids.
    The enrollment office at the community college confirmed that Jones was registered for classes this fall at Kirkwood. Kirkwood coach Bryan Petersen, a Clinton High graduate, declined to comment and gave no indication that Jones would play basketball for the Eagles this winter.
    "College basketball isn't for everybody," Clinton coach Nick Lawrence said. "A little time away might do him some good."
    Jones came home to Clinton after spending just a few days with the Mavericks, and enrolled to Kirkwood shortly thereafter.
    Jones, the Herald's Player of the Year, averaged 19 points a game for the River Kings in his senior season and finished with the second-most rebounds with 160.
    He shot 41 percent on the floor and 28 percent from 3-point territory. He committed to Omaha before last season started in October.
