Gastuch lifts Carver past Young America KIP KOVAR Herald Journal Sports Editor CARVER – The Carver Black Sox came into the 2021 season as a team to watch. They proved they are for real with a thrill- ing 7-6 win over the Young America Car- dinals May 23 to claim the spot in the Crow River Valley League South Standings. It was a perfect start for the Black Sox as they jumped out to a 5-2 lead over the Cardinals with a four-run third inning. Young America wouldn’t go away easily though. The Cardinals rallied for four runs in the top of the fifth to take a 6-5 lead over Carver. Needing to respond in order to pick up a statement win, it was Dan Gastuch that delivered for the Black Sox in a big way. A two-run home run by Gastuch in the bot- tom of the seventh gave Carver the lead, and with their top-tier bullpen, that’s all they needed as they handed the Cardinals their first loss of the season. With a one-run lead entering the final two innings, Carver turned to their go-to reliever in Jacob Booden on the mound. Booden kept the Cardinals in check the rest of the way, picking up four strikeouts in two innings to get the save and seal the win for the Black Sox. Leading the way offensively for Carver were Gastuch, Alex Twenge, and Sam War- ner. Twenge and Warner had two hits apiece while Gastuch finished the day going 2-for- 4 with a home run and two RBI. Twenge also got the win in relief. He went two and two-thirds innings, allowing no runs and striking out two. Young America was led at the plate by Cole Peters. He went 2-for-3 with a triple and RBI. Brice Panning, Matt Mann, Alex Logelin, and Blake Pistulka each had one RBI a peice in the loss. Dillon Whittaker was tagged with the loss for the Cardinals on the mound in re- lief of Isaac Hormann. Whittaker threw five innings, allowing two runs off of two hits. Dan Gastuch’s seventh-inning home run lifted the Carver Black Sox to a 7-6 win over Young America May 23.
