Terveer turns triple play against West River foe

Al Kirkeby For the Journal
BV senior first baseman Cade Terveer turned a rare triple play against Roosevelt last week.
It was one apiece for No. 1 Sioux Falls Roosevelt and No. 4 Brandon Valley on April 30, as the Rough Riders took game one 11-5 and the hosts collected the 11-8 win in the follow-up.
The Riders took a 1-0 lead in the opener but the Lynx scored twice in the bottom of the first for a 2-1 edge and another BV run in the third to go ahead 3-1. Roosevelt exploded for eight runs in the fourth after tying the game in the third and held off the Lynx for the 11-5 win. 
Offensively, Cade Terveer and Logan Nolz each had two hits; Weston Struble offered a double and Will Brown a triple. On the mound, Cole Hupke (3 1/3 innings) and Jackson Hayes (3 2/3 innings) combined to scatter nine hits, strike out seven, and walked just one Roosevelt batter. Only three of the Rough Riders sores were earned as the Lynx committed an uncharacteristic five errors in the loss. 
The Lynx offense got out to a quick start in the nightcap, sending nine men to the plate and scoring five runs with the highlight being a three-run home run by Connor Knecht. Knecht hit a second homer to lead off the third, and in all total, Knecht drove in four runs.
BV’s remaining five runs came in the fourth without the benefit of a hit, as Roosevelt failed to throw strikes; the Lynx walked seven times plus had a batter hit by pitch. Trailing 11-3, the defending state champion Riders rallied in the seventh, notching five runs but fell short for just the second time this season. 
Jack Smith had a pair of singles to join Knecht with a multi-hit game as the Lynx collected seven total hits to the Riders’ six. Struble was the winning pitcher, going four innings, allowing three runs, four hits, three walks, and striking out six with Nolz relieving for three innings and giving up five runs on two hits with four walks and striking out five. 
Defensively, the Lynx turned a rare triple play in the top of the fourth. With runners on first and second, BV first baseman Terveer leaped to snag a line drive, reached down and tagged the off-base Roosevelt runner, and threw to shortstop Dayne Peyton for the force out at second.
Road trip split in Huron
One night after their win over Roosevelt, BV traveled to Huron where they split with the Tigers, losing 6-3 before coming back to crush the Tigers 17-5.
BV managed a slim four hits in the opener. Nolz belted a triple but the Lynx stranded six base runners. Andrew Erkonen got the start on the mound, tossing five innings. He allowed six runs on eight hits, struck out five and walked one. Frank Archer pitched the final inning giving up just one hit while striking out three. 
Scoring was not a problem in game two as the Lynx pounded out 21 hits in their 17-5 victory. Terveer had a double and Struble and Joe Kolbeck each tripled in the win. Seven BV batters had multi-hit games with Struble, Brad Skorczewski, and Jack Smith each producing a trio of hits while Trey Hubers, Will Brown, Connor Knecht, and Kolbeck each had two. 
Kolbeck got the start on the bump, scattering five hits, walking three, and striking out five. Archer closed this game out as well, pitching three scoreless innings, allowing two hits and one walk with four strike outs.
