Tuesday, June 11

Sabetha run-rules Falls City

Jalen Worthley scattered 5 hits in Sabetha's 9-1 5-inning victory.  Falls City scored an unearned run in the second to take an early 1-0 lead,  Sabetha scored 4 runs in in the 3rd and tacked on 5 more runs in the 4th to finish the scoring.  Joe Gruber had 2 hits and 4 RBI's in the contest.  Like Falls City, the Raptors had 5 hits but took advantage of 4 walks, a hit batter and an error to score their 9 runs.  Sabetha only left 2 of the 11 batters that reached on base. 

Marysville has no problem with Wymore

Marysville used a five-run sixth inning to take control and pick up an 8-2 non-league victory over Wymore. The big inning was driven by singles by Brandon Schroedl and Storm Slupianek and a double by Brennan Wetter. On the mound Schroedl also got the win as he went five innings, allowing two runs on five hits while striking out three. Slupianek led Marysville with two hits in four at-bats while Post 163 was also perfect defensively.

Sabetha takes two from Silver Lake at home

In the featured game of the week on 103.9 KNZA the Sabetha Raptors received an offensive outburst and solid pitching in a sweep of Silver Lake winning game one 15-1 and the second 5-3. In game one the Raptors plated all 15 runs in the first inning and sent 20 batters to the plate, taking advantage of 10 walks and a hit by pitch. Braden Mitchell was named the McDonald’s Player of the Game on KNZA, as he finished 1-for-1 with two walks, a hit, and two runs scored. Brayden Becker also got the win on the mound lasting all four innings allowing just one unearned run while striking out seven.

In game two Silver Lake jumped to an early 2-1 lead after 2.5 innings on a pair of Joe McIntyre singles.  After McIntyre's single in the third and a hit batsman, Braden Argabright was summoned to pitch with the bases juiced and no outs and was able to escape without any further damage.  Sabetha was able to take a 3-2 lead in the bottom of the third on an RBI triple from Blake Frey.  Frey scored what proved to be the game winner on a Joe Gruber sac fly.  The Raptors were able to tack on a pair of runs in the bottom of the fourth on a 2-out double by Brayden Becker and single by Ryan Stapleton.  Argabright picked up the win by hurling three innings in relief allowing only 1 hit while striking out five.

Marysville blanks Seneca in dominating sweep

Game one was much closer than the score indicated as Marysville used a four-run seventh inning to build on what was just a 3-0 lead to go on to win 7-0. In the seventh the four runs were led by singles by Trey Siemens, Owen Nietfeld and Brandon Schroedl while Storm Slupianek also doubled. Derek Roever picked up the win on the mound for Marysville, as he allowed three hits and zero runs over four innings while striking out six.

In game two it was just all Marysville from the start as they plated four runs in both the first and second innings to jump out to an 8-0 lead before putting the game away with a five-run fifth and winning 13-0. Marysville tallied 10 hits in the game as Siemens, Netfield and Brennan Wetter each racked up multiple hits while as a team Marysville stole 11 bases.

Oskaloosa picks up first wins of the season in sweep of Hiawatha

In game one it was all River Bandits from the start as Oskaloosa jumped out to a 4-0 lead after two innings before going on to win 10-1. Cooper Jepson led the offense in game one with three hits, while Diego Cervantez and Riley Trust each collected two RBI. Avery Gatzmeyer led the charge on the mound as he was spectacular earning the win going all five innings allowing just five hits and no earned runs while striking out 10.

Game two was much closer with Hiawatha actually holding a 5-4 lead going into the bottom of the fourth, but Oskaloosa scored three runs to complete the sweep with a 7-5 win. Cade Norris delivered the big blow on a two-run single in the fourth, as he led the offense with a 2-for-2 day. Diego Cervantez got the win for the River Bandits lasting four innings allowing just two earned runs while striking out four.

Corning splits with Marysville Jr Legion

Behind pounding out 11 hits and scoring early and often Corning wrapped up a game one win over the junior legion from Marysville 11-8. Corning jumped out to a 3-0 lead after two innings and added two more runs in the fourth and three in the fifth. Marysville tried to mound a comeback with runs in the final four innings but Corning had just enough to survive. Kamble Haverkamp, Noah Quigley and Austin Holthaus each collected two hits for Corning while Ethan McNally added two RBI.

Game two was a much different story as Marysville scored early and used a seven-run fourth inning to win convincingly 12-2. Jackson O’Toole led the charge with three hits and five RBI’s, while Caden Brinegar and Gabe Ketter each added two RBI’s. Brinegar also got the win on the mound for Marysville as he tossed 2.2 innings allowing just one run on three hits.
