2012 Season - Juhl's hot bat helps Vikings sweep Cougars

Junior shortstop Jeremy Juhl had quite a day in Augustana's double-header sweep of Minnesota-Morris. He had seven hits, five RBI and scored five runs as the Vikings won 6-1 and 20-0 to move to 9-2 on the year.

FT. MYERS, Florida - Augustana bashed 33 hits and a total of four pitchers allowed just one run in 14 innings as the Vikings swept a non-conference double header from Minnesota-Morris on Friday, March 16 in Ft. Myers, Florida at the Red Sox Player Development Center. With the two wins Augustana moved to 9-2 on the season in the second of two trips to Florida before the College Conference of Illinois & Wisconsin campaign begins.

Senior Mike Trotta (Niles Notre Dame HS, Chicago, Ill.) went the distance in the first game, scattering seven hits, en route to moving his record to 3-0 on the year. Junior Ben Heaton (Bloomington Central Catholic HS, Heyworth, Ill.) pitched five strong innings in the second game and upped his mark to 2-1.

Junior shortstop Jeremy Juhl (Glenbard East HS, Lombard, Ill.) led the Viking offense with seven hits on the day. He scored five runs, had five runs-batted-in and walked once.

Augustana will face Wisconsin-Lutheran at 9:00 a.m. on Saturday, March 17 at the Red Sox Player Development Center.

GAME 1 - Augustana 6, Minnesota-Morris 1

Trotta was superb as he tossed a seven-inning complete game, allowing seven hits, six of which were singles, while striking out six and moving to 3-0 on the year.  He worked out of a bases-loaded jam in the fifth and left two stranded in the fourth.

Juhl had two hits, including a two run double in the six that gave Trotta some insurance runs. He started things off for the Vikings in the bottom of the first with a single and eventually scored on a ground out by junior second baseman Kurt Schmidt (Grayslake Central HS, Grayslake, Ill.).

The Vikings put two more runs on the board in the second off Cougar starter Jake Johnson. Senior right fielder Kevin Serna (Rolling Meadows HS, Arlington Heights, Ill.) led off with a single and junior first baseman Grant Stewart (Sterling HS, Sterling, Ill.) reached on an error. Serna had stolen second during Stewart's at-bat and he went to third on the error. A sacrifice fly off the bat of junior catcher Jim Sandberg (J.K. Mullen HS, Littleton, Colo.) brought Serna in and Stewart scored on a single by senior left fielder Anthony Concialdi (Fremd HS, Barrington, Ill.).

Minnesota-Morris scored a run in the fourth when Dustin Sauter, who had two hits in the game, doubled with one out and came home on a single by Mike McGill.

With the score 3-1 heading into the bottom of the sixth, Sandberg coaxed a one-out walk and Concialdi doubled him to third. Juhl's double drove in both Sandberg and Concialdi and he scored on a single by Schmidt to account for the final score.

GAME 2 - Augustana 20, Minnesota-Morris 0

The Vikings knocked around six Cougar pitchers and scored in every inning, including seven in the top of the seventh as they routed Minnesota-Morris 20-0. Juhl was in the middle of most of the action as he went five-for-five with three runs scored and three RBI. He also added a walk.

Heaton worked five innings and picked up the victory to move to 2-1. He struck out five and allowed just three hits without walking anybody. Junior George Dexter (Bettendorf HS, Bettendorf, Iowa), a starter on the Augustana basketball team, made his first career collegiate appearance and worked a perfect sixth inning, striking out two. Freshman Michael Murphy (Waubonsie Valley HS, Aurora, Ill.) struck out two in the seventh as he closed out the game for the Vikings.

Juhl wasn't the only offensive weapon for the Vikings, who pounded out 21 hits in the game. Sandberg, junior Mark VanNatta (Rock Island Alleman Catholic HS, Moline, Ill.) and junior Jared McIntosh (Davenport Assumption HS, Davenport, Iowa) all clouted home runs. Augustana had 10 extra base hits en route to piling up 20 runs. A total of 12 Vikings had base hits.

Junior Joe Cecchi (Romeoville HS, Romeoville, Ill.) had three hits while Sandberg, McIntosh and sophomore Jacob VanDuyne (Wilmington HS, Wilmington, Ill.) each had two.

The Vikings scored two runs in the top of the second and never looked back, piling on four in the second and single runs in the third and fourth. They put four up in the fifth and one in the fifth before using six hits and two Morris errors in the seventh to add seven more.
