After four-straight games were rained out, the A-D-M baseball team won their second-straight game with a 6-5 win against Gilbert in Adel.

Gilbert had a 2-0 lead after the first inning, but five runs in the fifth by the Tigers helped lift them to victory.

Grant Goeden was a homerun short of hitting for the cycle against Gilbert as he went 3-for-4 with a single, a double, a triple, an RBI and a run scored. Left fielder Kody Irwin went 1-for-1 with a homerun, two runs scored, one RBI, a stolen base while also drawing two walks.

Joe Sloss got the win on the mound behind three strikouts and two earned runs.

The Tigers will play next against Lewis Central in Council Bluffs on Thursday.


Last season on July 24, 2013, Boone scored four runs in the bottom of the seventh inning in a dramatic, come-from-behind victory over the A-D-M baseball team in the substate finals in Boone. This season, back on June 4, the Tigers suffered a 10-0 loss to the Toreadors on the same field.

On June 25, however, it was a different story as the Tigers scored in the bottom of the ninth inning to complete their own dramatic victory against Boone by a score of 5-4. Sam Kornstad went all nine innings, only struck out three batters but was still in line for the win.

Joe Sloss went 2-for-4 with a double and two runs scored. Goeden was in his normal form as he went 2-for-5 with a triple, an RBI and scored one run.

The triple by Goeden put him at the top of the leaderboard for triples in Class 3A with six.

Kornstad is now 3-2 on the season with a 1.75 ERA and 33 strikeouts in six starts.

The Tigers’ games on June 26 and 27, as well as the tournament they were set to host on June 28 were all canceled due to rain and severe weather.
