Butz strikes out 29 in doubleheader
Detroit Lakes Minnesota 511 Washington Avenue 56501

It was a strikeout kind of day for Detroit Lakes pitcher Callea Butz, who mowed down a total of 29 Ada batters in Tuesday's doubleheader at Snappy Park.

Unfortunately, both games didn't end up in wins for Butz and the Lakers, as Ada rallied back in game two by scoring five runs in the sixth inning to steal an 8-6 win.

But the dominant pitching of Butz has been a big bright spot for the Lakers this summer, as she knocked down 16 batters in a game one 6-0 win and 13 in the nightcap.

"If there was any threat (in game one), Butz struck out the side," said DL head coach Phil Kirchner. "She just did a nice job of changing up her speed. She still has some work to do on all of her pitches and to mix it up a little more."

The Lakers gained some big hits by Dana Dugger and Brittni Larson in the victory, with each going for two hits.

Larson sparked a three-run second inning rally by leading off with a double, while Dugger proceeded with a single.

An error on a Sarah Wilson hit scored both Lakers, as Wilson later took home on an Alice Branden bases-loaded walk.

Larson scored her second of three runs in the third after leading off with a single, stealing second and being hit in on one of Dugger's two RBIs on the game.

Dugger picked up RBI No. 2 in the fifth by lacing a single to score Jennifer Wenner, who led the frame off with a double.

Larson scored her third run of the tilt after reaching on an error.

Butz limited Ada to two hits and walked just three.

The young Lakers took to the field in game two, with some inexperience showing on the defense.

Butz again was in command, striking out 13, but four errors led to six unearned runs. Two errors factored in the decisive five-run sixth inning.

"We had our young players in and they made a few errors, that happens," Kirchner said. "We just need to play some more consistent defense."

A highlight for the Lakers, who led 6-0 after the fourth inning, was Branden's long two-run homerun in the third.

Ashley Baer got on track with a 2-3 and one RBI day.

Olivia Hanson went 2-2, as well.

The Lakers will play at Barnesville Tuesday and start the playoffs July 14-15, in Hawley.

DL is 9-8 and will be battling for a third or fourth seed for the playoffs.
