Seneca takes two from Doniphan County

In what was a wild night in Seneca it was the home team picking up two wins over Doniphan County winning the first game 7-4 and the second 19-8.

The opening game of the night looked like early it would be an easy win for Seneca as they raced out to a 6-0 lead after two innings thanks to four hits and four D.C. errors.

Landen Baker led the offensive charge early with two singles and three RBI while Andrew Leonard scored a pair of runs.

Doniphan County slowly started to creep back in the game and made it 6-2 with a two-run fourth taking advantage of four walks and a two-RBI single by Broc Studer.

In the bottom of the fourth Seneca appeared to be in a spot to answer with the bases loaded and just one out, but D.C. turned a controversial double play which resulted in the ejection of two Seneca coaches.

Doniphan County followed that up with another run in the top of the fifth to make it a 6-3 game before Seneca added a run in the bottom of the inning to lead 7-3 going into the seventh.

D.C scored one more run in the seventh and put the game-tying run on first base, but Seneca pitcher John Strathman recorded a ground out to end the game.

Baker was named our McDonald’s Player of the Game on 103.9 KNZA with his two hits and three RBI, while Austin Ahlquist recorded the only other hit for Seneca.

Trent Spiker led Doniphan County with two hits in the loss while Studer had the two RBI.

In game two Seneca again raced out to a 6-0 lead in the first inning, but again Doniphan County came back and tied the game in the top of the third.

The Seneca offense took back complete control in the bottom of the inning scoring 13 runs on four hits and 10 walks to end the game via the run-rule.

Baker and Noe Gauna each recorded two hits in the win while Baker added four RBI to go along with two each from Zac Kramer and Trent Schmitz.

Doniphan County had Bray Davies go 2-for-2 in the loss while Alex Libel and Trent Spiker added two RBI each.

Seneca is now 5-3 on the year and will next be in action Sunday hosting Valley Falls while Doniphan County hosts Marysville.

Sabetha and Marysville split

Marysville & Sabetha split a doubleheader with Sabetha winning game one 8-0 in 5-innings and Marysville winning game two 8-1.

Tristan Wittwer allowed only three hits in his first career start in game one.  Sabetha held a slim 1-0 on an RBI single by Darrin Funk heading into the bottom of the fourth. 

The Raptors scored four runs on only one hit in the fourth and added three more runs in the fifth to end the game. 

Sabetha only had five hits in the contest but took advantage of eight Marysville walks and three hit batters.

Ayden Price scattered four hits and allowed only an unearned run to lead Marysville to an 8-1 win in game two.

Price also had a pair of hits and scored two runs to help himself.  Sabetha's Marcus Bauman also had two hits in the contest.

Sabetha is now 3-5 on the year and will host Topeka on Sunday while Marysville (2-4) travels to Doniphan County.
