The Buckman Billygoats advanced to the State Quarterfinals with an 11-1 win in 7 innings over the Lake City Serpents in Shakopee on Saturday.  Buckman starter Jeremy Monson got off to a great start, striking out the first two batters of the game and then getting a weak grounder to 2nd baseman Lane Girtz for a 1-2-3 top of the 1st.  Leading off the home half of the 1st, Matt Tautges lined a double to left-center.  A wild pitch advanced him to 3rd, followed by a Lane Girtz walk.  Girtz and Tautges then worked a double steal with Tautges scoring after a throw down to 2nd to give the Goats a 1-0 lead after 1 inning.  In the top of the 2nd, Lake City loaded the bases with 3 singles off Munson, but Jeremy got a fly out to deep center hauled in by Matt Tautges near the warning track to end the scoring threat.  Buckman got a 2-out single from Jack Suska in the bottom of the 2nd, but a force out at 2nd ended the inning.  In the top of the 3rd, Monson needed just 6 pitches to retire the Serpents in order.  Again in the bottom of the 3rd, Buckman managed a 2-out hit, a double by Aaron Weber, but a ground out to 1st left Weber on base and completed 3 innings with Buckman still up 1-0.  It looked like Lake City had something going to start the 4th when the first batter, Austin Baab was hit by a pitch. The next hitter, Logan Thomas, then drilled a ball between 1st and 2nd that ended up hitting the base runner for an automatic out.  Monson then got a fly out to right fielder Travis Kahl and a foul out to catch Matt Kummet and just like that, the inning was over.  The Billygoats took that little momentum swing and ran with in the bottom of the 4th, scoring 4 runs.  Noah Boser started it with a single to right followed by a 4-pitch walk to Matt Kummet.  A perfect sacrifice bunt by Shawn Lanners advanced both runners up a base.  With the Lake City infield pulled in on the grass, Jack Suska hit a sharp grounder right to shortstop, but the ball was bobbled for an error and Buckman had the bases loaded with 1 out.  2 straight wild pitches allowed both Boser and Kummet to score to make it 3-0.  Matt Tautges then delivered a 2-out rbi single to bring in Suska to make it 4-0.  Lane Girtz then laced a double down the left field line, moving Tautges to 3rd.  The 3rd wild pitch of the inning allowed Tautges to score to make it 5-0 before the inning ended on a fly out to center.  In the top of the 5th, the Serpents picked up s 2-out hit but Monson got the hitter to line out to Matt Tautges to complete the inning.  In the bottom of the 5th, Lake City brought in a new pitcher, Kyle Sursley, who would put the Billygoats quickly down in order.  The Serpents scored a run in the top of the 6th to break up Monson’s shutout.  A 2-out rbi single by Jacob Fletcher made it 5-1. In the bottom of the 6th, Sursley again retired Buckman in order.  In the top of the 7th, Monson fanned the first two men he faced before John Brown doubled to right, followed by Matt Miller getting hit by a Monson pitch.  Monson stayed out of trouble though by getting Austin Baab to ground back to the mound.  Leading off the bottom of the 7th, Matt Tautges slapped a single past 3rd.  Lane Girtz then came up with his second double of the day, followed by an Aaron Weber run-scoring single to score Tautges to make it 6-1 and move Girtz to 3rd.  Then for the 4th time in the game, a wild pitch allowed a Buckman runner to score as Girtz scored easily to make it 7-1.  After a strikeout, Noah Boser stroked an rbi triple to plate Weber and make it 8-1.  Matt Kummet then walked, Shawn Lanners was hit by a pitch to load the bases with 1 out.  With Noah Cekalla pinch-running for Kummet at 2nd, Jack Suska stepped up to the plate and smashed a line drive to center that flew over the center fielders head as Boser, Cekalla and Lanners all came in to score on the 3-run triple that made the score 11-1 and ended the game due to the 10-run rule.  Lake City saw their season end with a record of 12-11 while Buckman improved to 20-5.  The Billygoats will now face the defending State Champion Kimball Express in the Quarterfinals on Sunday morning at 11:00 am in New Prague.
