Corning and Sabetha Split

In game one Corning raced out to a 4-0 early and had to eventually hold on to pick up a 4-2 win and give Sabetha their first loss of the summer.

Corning plated three runs in the first inning on a two-RBI triple from Zac Fischer and a sacrifice fly from Austin Holthaus, then added a run in the second on an RBI-single from Trent Talley to lead 4-0 after two.

Corning had a chance to put the game away several times, but Sabetha starter Christian McAfee did a commendable job of limiting the damage and keeping the Raptors in it.

Sabetha tried to get back in the game scoring two runs in the fifth on an RBI-double from Marcus Baumann and an RBI single from Darrin Funk, but Corning’s Jason Abitz locked things down on the mound the rest of the way.
