The Cold Spring Silver Springers defeated the Alexandria Classic Clippers 4-0 on Saturday in a league game at Springer Park in Cold Spring. The offense only managed seven hits in the game, but the defense was perfect and Joe Kounkel pitched a complete game shutout on the mound. He allowed just four hits, walked one, and struck out two.
Cold Spring got on the board with two runs in the bottom of the third inning, and that would prove to be all they'd need. Brent Schloe walked; Todd Van Erp sacrificed Schloe to second; Troy Schroeder singled; and Greg Terres tripled home Schloe and Schroeder to make the score 2-0. The Silvers tacked on another run in the bottom of the fourth inning when Mike Arnold doubled, advanced to second on a ground out, and scored on an error to give the home team a 3-0 lead. Cold Spring scored an insurance run in the bottom of the sixth inning when Derek Falde singled, Schloe doubled him to third, and Schroeder hit a sacrifice fly to score Falde and give the Silvers a 4-0 victory.
