The Farmington baseball team was on both sides of a pair of doubleheader sweeps last week.
The Tigers had their largest offensive output of the young season last Tuesday when they knocked off New Prague 13-2 and 5-2 at Memorial Park in New Prague. Two days later at Donaldson Park in Richfield, Holy Angels did more damage with the bats in a 4-3, 13-7 sweep.
Farmington carried early leads in both games of its doubleheader Friday afternoon in Rochester, but struggles both on the mound and in the field made them disappear in a Missota Conference sweep at the hands of Red Wing.
The Farmington baseball team got the offensive spark it needed heading into section tournament time.
Coming off a three-game span where they plated four runs, the Tigers scored four in the bottom of the first and kept adding on in a 9-5 win over Lakeville South in their regular season finale Monday afternoon at Tiger Field.
Drew Hegseth walked just two batters when Farmington shut out New Prague on the road, 8-0, just over three weeks ago.
The Tigers ended up on the other side of a shutout in Thursday night’s rematch as the offense fell silent and the pitching staff yielded seven free passes and two hit-by-pitches in a 6-0 loss to the Trojans at Tiger Field.
There was some hope that the bats were starting to heat up for the Farmington baseball team when it scored 14 runs and rapped 26 hits in back-to-back wins over Chanhassen and New Prague just over two weeks ago.
A 13-hit attack and a solid outing from starting pitcher Jonathan Ellis helped the Farmington baseball team put an end to its five-game losing skid Monday afternoon.
The Tigers started a busy stretch of four games in five days with a 6-2 victory over Chanhassen.
Four Farmington errors led to two unearned runs and double plays killed rallies in the sixth and seventh innings as the Tigers dropped a 5-4 contest to Missota Conference rival Holy Angels Monday night at Feely Fields.
