Ask Tommy Nyquist’s grandfather if his grandson hits the ball hard.

Nyquist ripped a shot that hit his grandpa on the mound in a Boys Training coach pitch game for United Refining on Thursday at Betts Park. That was a single.

Nyquist added two doubles, a triple and a home run to hit for the cycle, and accounted for 11 outs defensively, eight from shortstop with first baseman Matt DeSimone. DeSimone also homered for United.

Alex Zariczny and Josh Walsh had two hits each for Inscale Architects in a Boys Minors win. Hultberg, Owen Welker and Teagan Gray combined for a two-hitter on the mound.

D&I Silica scored five runs with two outs to walk off in the bottom of the fifth inning in a Boys Minors win. Danah Campbell had the winning single. Connor Cummings had a huge day at the plate with two triples and knocking in four of AVAS’ five runs.

Exchange Club scored five runs in the bottom of the fourth inning and Andrew Wees turned a double play to end the game and complete the come-from-behind Boys Minors win over Cornerstone Lounge. Jeremiah Aiken had four hits, including a double, and Mitchell Rossman added three for Exchange Club. Isaac Smith was 2-for-2 to lead Cornerstone.

Austin Peterson drove in four runs in a strong day at the plate that included a triple and a home run for AVAS in a 14-0 Boys Majors win over Wilcox Brothers. Gage Hendrickson, Eric Garbard, and Brady Olewine combined pitching efforts in the three-hit shutout win.

Lilly Branthoover made a nice backhanded stop from short in the hole and touched third for a force for CTI Physical Therapy.
