The Buckman Billygoats defeated the Avon Lakers 3-2 in Avon on Saturday as the Tournament began to sort out its seeds heading to the State Tournament.  The Lakers got off to a strong start, with Matt Meyer leading off the game with a double against Buckman starter Matt Tautges.  After a strikeout, Taylor Holthaus connected for an opposite-field 2-run blast to right to put Avon ahead 2-0.  Josh Becker added a 2-out single off Tautges in the top of the 1st but was stranded when Tautges finished the inning with a strikeout.  That would turn out to be the extent of the Avon offense on the day as Tautges hurled shutout ball and allowed just 2 more hits the rest of the game.  

Avon's Matt Pichelmann made his third start of the Tournament, with the prior two appearances ending with Complete Game wins, including a 4-3 decision over Buckman in the first round.

It was still 2-0 heading into the bottom of the 2nd when Buckman's Shawn Lanners connected for a 2-out line drive Homer to right to cut the lead in half at 2-1.

Matt Tautges of Buckman then went on a stretch where he retired 13 out of the next 14 hitters, allowing just a 2-out walk to Taylor Holthaus in the 3rd.  Matt Pichelmann of Avon was equally effective, giving up only a lead-off single to Jack Suska in the 3rd as the game was still 2-1 in favor of Avon after 5 innings.  

In the top of the 6th, Avon got a 2-out single by Riley Voit, followed by a walk to Josh Becker.  Noah Boser then made a head-first diving catch of a line drive off the bat of Carter Philippi to end the inning and keep it a 2-1 game. Pichelmann then worked a 1-2-3 bottom of the 6th.

In the top of the 7th, Avon got a 2-out base runner when Tony Harlander walked and then stole 2nd.  Matt Meyer then grounded to 3rd,and Buckman 1st baseman Shawn Lanners saved a throwing error and a likely unearned run by picking a low throw out of the dirt to end the inning.  In the bottom of the 7th, Noah Boser ed things off for the Billygoats with a single up the middle.  Matt Kummet then hit the next pitch from Pichelmann to deep center for a double to put runners at 2nd and 3rd with no outs.  Aaron Weber then drove in the tying run with a slow ground ball up the middle, with Weber thrown out at 1st by shortstop Cody Stich, with Boser crossing the plate to make it 2-2 and Kummet advancing to 3rd with 1 out. Shawn Lanners then sliced a single down the left field line to bring in Kummet with the go-ahead run, making it 3-2.  Pichelmann then ended the 7th by getting a 4-6-3 double play.

In the top of the 8th, Avon got a 2-out base runner when Riley Voit reached on an error, but Tautges ended the frame with a strikeout.  Cody Stich took over the pitching duties for Avon in the bottom of the 8th, and allowed a pair of 1-out walks, but kept it a 1-run game with a pair of pop outs.

In the top of the 9th, Carter Philippi led off the inning with an infield single to put the tying run on base with no outs.  Matt Tautges then fanned pinch-hitter Carter Holthaus and Zac Tomsche to produce 2 outs.  Tautges then completed the win with a line drive out to shortstop Jack Suska off the bat of Tony Harlander to end the 3-2 Buckman victory.  With the loss, Avon will enter the State Tournament as the #4 seed out of Region 8C.  Buckman moved on to play Fort Ripley at 3:30 pm.
