Batting his way into the record book

Orono's Jacob Flemmer ties state record for hits in a game

Orono sophomore Jacob Flemmer batted his way into the state record books Thursday in a Wright County Conference matchup.

The Spartans starting catcher went 6-for-6 in an eight-inning, 14-8 victory over Dassel-Cokato to become only the third person in state history to have six hits in a game. Flemmer scattered six singles, scoring two runs and batting in three.

"Yeseterday was unbelievable," Orono coach Dick Crandall said Friday morning.

Crandall said Flemmer – a lefty – has been playing varsity ball since midway through his freshman year.

"He's a good player," Crandall said. "He's not just a one game deal."

Flemmer bats in the lead-off position and consistently gets hits. Although most of his hits are singles, he's shown flashes of power, collecting several doubles and hitting his first home run in a game against Mounds View earlier this season.

Orono trailed Dassel-Cokato by three runs Thursday before batting nine in the seventh to tie the game and then 11 batters in the eighth to seal the victory.

The Spartans (6-3, 5-3) are in third place in the Wright County Conference. They go on the road to face Delano at 4:30 p.m. Friday, April 27, in Delano.
