Josh Roenicke, a 2001 Nevada Union graduate, saw action in three games this past week, throwing a combined 2 2/3 innings for the Minnesota Twins, allowing three hits and no runs while striking out three.

On Tuesday, Roenicke pitched an inning in the Twins’ 10-3 victory over the Los Angeles Angels. The righty allowed one hit and struck out one in the win.

Facing the Seattle Mariners Thursday, Roenicke threw a perfect inning and struck out one. However, the Twins would drop that game, 8-2.

In Saturday’s action, Roenicke helped the Twins top the Mariners, 4-0, throwing 2/3 of an inning, allowing two hits and no runs and recording a strikeout.

For the season, Roenicke has taken the mound in 41 games, has nine holds, owns a 2-1 record, totes a 3.43 ERA and has a 1.38 WHIP.

The Twins are currently 45-57 and 13 games back of AL Central leader Detroit.


Erik Flores, a 2005 Nevada Union graduate, was in the hunt for the Albertson’s Bosie Open championship after two rounds but fell to 40th on the leaderboard after mediocre weekend rounds.

Flores was in fifth-place at 12 under par heading into the weekend, boasting a four-under-par in round one and an eight-under in round two.

In round two, Flores notched 10 birdies to just two bogeys. In rounds three and four, Flores avoided bogeys for the most part — just four in both rounds — but didn’t tally enough birdies to stay in contention.

Flores finished at 13 under par and in 40th overall.

On the year, Flores has competed in eight events, made the cut in four of them and finished in the top 25 once.
