first_imgThere are a number of horror stories that come along with a rigorous tour schedule, as any established band will tell you. It’s something all up-and-coming bands must go through in order to “make it” to a point of respect, almost like a fraternity/sorority’s “rush” to becoming part of the music industry’s universe. Sometimes that means getting stuck in stand-still traffic on the side of the highway in the middle of North Carolina on Mother’s Day. What else to do, but to break out the drum kit and put on a show?The Main Squeeze, Spafford, Aqueous, And More To Play First Ever Canyon Jam At The MishawakaThat’s the direction The Main Squeeze were heading until the cars finally started to move. Drummer Reuben Gingrich delivered the commuters who were also stranded on the highway with just over a minute of rock solace. Watch the impromptu pop-up jam below:The Main Squeeze recently released their fourth studio effort, Without A Sound. The album serves as a musical snapshot for the band, capturing their experience of relocating from The Windy City to the City of Angels. Listen to the album here.Coincidentally, it’s also Reuben’s birthday today AND he just released his debut solo album Blue Island. You can purchase it here, and stream it below:The Main Squeeze are just over half way through with their tour, heading toward Washington, DC on May 17th, then making their way up the east coast.

But we’ve got bad weather in the forecast, of course. At least, Wellington got its softball and baseball make-up games played Tuesday. Wellington girls softball team split in a triangular in Clearwater. Wellington baseball split at Collegiate.This just in: Wellington has cancelled its doubleheaders at Andover to get in the doubleheaders with Circle on Tuesday, May 7 at Towanda. The Wellington-Circle contests are league games. Andover is a non-league foe.Wellington softball: Wellington is now 7-3 for the season after beating Buhler and losing to Clearwater. The triangular was scheduled to make up what was supposed to be a doubleheader with Wichita Collegiate. But the Spartan program did not have enough girls to sport a team.Wellington won the first game against Buhler 9-2. The Crusaders lost the second game to Clearwater 5-3.In the first contest it was the battle of the Crusaders and the southern ones were better. Wellington had 13 hits and took advantage of six Buhler errors.In their first road contest of the season, the Lady Dukes opened with a 4-0 lead in the top of the first using an RBI single by Kailey Jenkins to spark the initial run.After Buhler shaved the lead in half with two runs in the bottom of the third, Wellington responded with a three-run output in the top of the fourth. Jenkins doubled to centerfield to bring Shanlyn Hefley and Ryleigh Buck home after Hefley brought Carlie McComb home on an RBI single.Leading 7-2, Wellington would add a run in the fifth and seventh inning.Wellington 4 0 0 3 1 0 1. 9. 13. 0Buhler 0 0 2 0 0 0 0   2 9 6Wellington individual batting stats:Oathout – 1 of 5.Hefley – 2 of 5, three runs, one RBI.Buck – 3 of 5, two runs, 1RBI, double.Jenkins – 2 of 5, one run, 4RBI, double.Mullen – 1 of 4, one run.Cornejo – 0 of 2.P Adams – 0 of 2.Hamel – 2 of 4, one run, 2 RBI.McComb – 2 of 4, one run.Zavala – 0 of 2Winning pitcher: Hefley, Losing pitcher: Sabastian. 1 2 3 4 5 6 7     R   H    EWHS   0 0 3 3 0 4 x     10  9    0WCS   0 0 0 0 0 0 x      0   2    2 W – Nance.    L – Taylor.    HR – Wolff W – Moxley.   L – Huck. Wellington baseball: Wellington split its games with Wichita Collegiate and is currently 3-7 for the season which officially means the Crusaders are at the half-way mark of games played, although there is just two weeks left in the season before regionals.It was the first road doubleheader of the season for Wellington.In the first game the gentlemen Dukes would beat the Spartans 10-0 in a run-rule game in six innings.The Crusaders then fell to the Spartans 8-7 in the second game in eight innings. Do the math and Wellington and Collegiate still played the customary 14 innings game – only doing so in a more unconventional way with 6 and 8 inning games instead of the standard 7 and 7.Wellington committed six errors in game two that prevented the team its first sweep of the season.The Crusaders which held Collegiate scoreless in game one, immediately allowed a run in the bottom of the first, one in the second and five in the third to stare at a 7-2 deficit.Wellington would get a four run output in the fourth and then scored a run in the sixth to knot the game up. Collegiate would score the winning run in the bottom of the eighth.The Spartans won despite getting outhit 10-3. Jerrod Huck lost in the starting role despite giving up just three hits.In game one, Wellington was cruising.Trevor Nance was the winning pitcher throwing a two hitter.The game was scoreless for two innings, but Wellington scored three runs in the top of the third, three runs in the top of the fourth to lead 6-0. In the sixth, Wellington scored four runs to preserve the win.Noah Wolff scored a home run for the Crusaders.
