Rockets win a pair off Danbury

BY TATUM DIEDRICH • News Herald correspondent • April 19, 2010

OAK HARBOR -- The Oak Harbor High School basebal team started 0-2 after losing consecutive road contests to St. Joseph Central Catholic and Genoa.


Since then, the Rockets had reeled off seven-consecutive victories in a row entering Saturday's doubleheader with Danbury.

Make it nine in a row.

Oak Harbor swept the non-league twinbill from Danbury, winning 20-3 in the opener and 12-11 in the 13-inning finale.

AJ Cecil's RBI single in the bottom half of the 13th inning scored Damion McAtee with the go-ahead run to push the Rockets' record to 9-2.

McAtee also did his part at the plate during the second game, where he was 3-for-5 with a grand slam that tied the game at 10 in the home half of the sixth inning. He also singled, doubled, had four RBIs and scored two runs.

Oak Harbor coach Rob Schimmoeller likes the momentum his team is carrrying into an important Sandusky Bay Conference week..

"We're coming into three league games (this) week," said Schimmoeller, who achieved career-win No. 100 during his team's 14-10 win over Monroeville on April 15. "Hopefully we can continue this win streak."

His club has won its first three conference games and enters the week tied with Clyde for the league lead.

The Rockets get Clyde at home Friday with Edison coming to town today, and a road trip to Huron on Wednesday.

In the first game Saturday, the Rockets scored four runs in the home half of the first, 12 runs in the second and two more each in the third and fourth to blow the game open.

Rookie Danbury head coach Adam Steinbrick like the way his team fought the adversity Saturday.

"I'm proud of their efforts and proud of the heart they showed," he said.

The Lakers (3-7) regularly start four sophomores and a freshman, as youth dominates the roster. They set the school record for wins last season by going 16-9 before falling 3-0 to eventual regional-semifinalist Hopewell-Loudon in the sectional championship.
