CHARLES CITY — In the first of three non-conference home games to close out the regular season, the Charles City Comets hosted South Winneshiek on Friday with the visiting Warriors winning 13-1 after six innings.

The Warriors had a 7-1 lead after five complete innings before rallying for 6 runs in the sixth for what would be the final score.

SW senior starting pitcher Kole Hageman pitched into the sixth inning needing to hold the Comets to no more than 2 runs for the game to be stopped by way of the 10-run mercy rule. Charles City managed to get two runners aboard with the “game-extending run” stepping up to the plate. But Cody Myer relieved Hageman to record the final out while preventing the Comets from scoring.

Hageman struck out five and walked five, while scattering four hits — all singles from Holden McInroy, Mathias O’Brien, Colton Anderegg and Luke Jacobs.

Carter Cajthaml drove in Charles City’s lone run in the fifth inning with a safety-squeeze sacrifice bunt.

Braiden Todd, Brody Tieskoetter and Mason Zweibahmer each had two hits for the Warriors (20-9).

Charles City fell to 3-21-1 going into Monday’s rescheduled game against Clear Lake followed by Tuesday’s game against Vinton-Shellsburg.

On Friday, the Comets will travel to Farley Community Park to take on Western Dubuque in the first-round (quarterfinals) of the Class 3A-Substate 3 bracket.
