Jamesson delivers for Watkins (twice)

NORWAY - Cale Jamesson belted a two-run homer to give Watkins a two-run lead over Red Top in extra innings Sunday.

Then he did it again.

Jamesson's back-to-back blasts helped the Mudhens defeat Red Top, 5-3, in 10 innings on a hot, windy day in Norway.

Red Top dominated the second game in the Iowa Valley League doubleheader, 9-0.

Watkins and Red Top were locked in a 1-1 battle in the opener when Jamesson hit a two-run rocket over the left-field fence to give the Mudhens a 3-1 lead in the top of the eighth.

Red Top tied the game, 3-3, in the bottom of the eighth, but Jamesson smacked another two-run shot to left field in the top of the 10th and this time it gave the Mudhens the lead for good.

"Being able to come up in that position again was really fun," said Jamesson, a Benton Community grad who played for Cornell College this past season as a freshman. "I put everything I had into it."

Czerwiec, Bell propel Fairfax

The hotter it is, the better Fairfax's Austin Czerwiec seems to pitch.

And it would have been hard to be any sharper that Czerwiec was during  Sunday's Iowa Valley League contest against Red Top.

"I love the heat," the former Mount Mercy and Muscatine High School standout said Sunday after he allowed just one hit in a 7-0 win over  the defending IVL champions at Herkleman Field on the Kennedy High School campus. "It helps keep my arm nice and relaxed and I don't have to worry about it tightening up at all."

Fairfax forfeited the second game because they did not have an umpire available. Both teams are now 3-1.

Czerwiec allowed a single to lead-off hitter Cal Clark in the first  inning and little else the rest of the way. He struck out nine, walked  one and hit another. He was able to keep Red Top's hitters off balance  with his variety of deliveries.

"I had my curveball working, my slider working and I was locating my  fastball well," he said. "If I have all my pitches working, it seems  like everything else is working too."

Aikey came right back in the second game and tossed a three-hitter  with 12 strikeouts as Emil's Hideaway took the nightcap, 2-1. Taylor  Nearad of Kirkwood, Megan Bonnett of Luther and player/coach Shelby  Crist had two hits for Emil's in the victory.
