Knight Problem: Pitching By Dennis O'Grady (Sports Editor) Pitching is the big question mark as Kuemper's baseball learn opens its season tonight at 8 p.m. against Aurelia at Carroll Stadium. "Our whole season will depend on how our pitching staff comes around." said Knight coach Lou Galetich. whose club went 15-10 a year ago. Two pitchers — lefthander Dean Heisterkamp and righthander Steve Garbier — have decided to pass up their final year of competition. A year ago. Heisterkamp was the club's top pitcher in wins with six. led in strikeouts with 65 and led in innings pitched with 56 and two-thirds. His earned run average was a good 2.09. Garbier, on the other hand, was only 2-3. but gave up only seven earned runs in 32 innings worked. His earned run average was a sparkling Times Herald, Carroll, la. jr Tuesday, June 4, 1974 O 1.52 to lead the staff. This year's staff consists of veterans Alan Kohorst and Mike Gute and newcomer Tom Nurse, all righthanders. Kohorst was 4-2 on the varsity a year ago with 2.33 earned run average and was 4-2 on the junior varsity team. Gute worked only four innings on the varsity last year, allowing no runs in four innings, but was 5-0 on a 12-4 j v squad with an outstanding earned run mark of 0.26. Kuemper's strong point is the infield where everyone returns and an outfield where two of three starters are back. ''We are basically experienced at every position." remarked Galetich. "We have infielders who can play almost anywhere and our outfield is a good one speed-wise." Third baseman Phil Baldus 10-Run Inning Sparks Tigers, 12-2 Carroll sent 17 men to the plate in the third inning and erupted for 10 runs and went on to a 12-2 victory over Manning here Monday night at Carroll Stadium in a game called after 4Vb innings because of the 10-run rule. The Bulldogs' starting pitcher Brian Lage had retired the first six batters he faced as his teammates had built up a 2-0 lead going into the bottom of inning No. 3. But the Tigers exploded as Todd Pettitt led off with an infield single and went to second on a wild throw to first. Catcher Larry Bock walked then leadoff hitter Todd Buck sacrificed Pettitt and Bock to second and third. A walk to Lonnie Lehrkamp loaded the bases then Ted Nam walked to force in the first Carroll run. Pete Marz then stroked a single to right center that got through the right fielder's leg. allowing three runs to score, making it 4-2 Tigers. Eric Siemer continued his hot bat as he has now hit safely in all three games by singling home Marz to make it 5-2. Carroll loaded the bases again on walks to Jeff Petersen and Pettitt then Brock greeting reliever Gary Graner with a two-run single down the right field line to make it 7-2. Pettitt scored on a pass ball moments later to make it 8-2 and Kirk Wenck put the finishing touches on the big inning by delivering a two-run single to make it 10-2. Carroll got its final two runs in the fourth as Petersen scored on a wild pitch and Pettitt scoring on a bloop single to center by reserve Tom Reiter. For the second straight game, Marz was superb on the mound for the Tigers as he allowed just three hits, two to Keith Stribe, while striking out 13 and walking only two. Marz now in 10 innings this year has not allowed an earned run and has fanned 23 batters. Manning got its first run in the opening frame as Jim Mohr reached base on an error, went to second on a pass ball and scored on a single to left by Graner. Their second run came in the third inning as Jim Karsten walked and came around on a single by Stribe that got through the legs of center fielder Buck.
