Marysville & Sabetha Play to Split
It was early big innings for each team in one of the games that lead to a split of the NEKL doubleheader on the night in Sabetha as Marysville won 8-4 and Sabetha took a 13-2 victory. 

Marysville took control in game one by batting around in the second inning and plating six runs in the process recording four hits and three walks to do so. Jayton Haggard led the inning off with a triple and then a Adam Lindhorst groundout brought Haggard in to start the scoring. Later in the second inning both Brennan Wetter and Jacob Latta each delivered a two RBI single for Marysville and Marysville tacked on another run in the third to lead 7-0. Sabetha broke through in the third inning with a Brandon Brownlee RBI single and then tallied another run in the fourth and fifth innings, too. Marysville brought in one more run in the sixth on a Latta RBI single and the game worked to the bottom of the seventh at 8-3. Sabetha worked the bases loaded with two-outs when Marysville made a pitching change from starter Derek Roever to Trey Siemens and he walked the first batter he faced for a Sabetha run but then shutdown the rally with a strikeout to secure the Marysville 8-4 win. 

Sabetha out-hit Marysville 11-7 in the contest but Marysville drew seven walks on the night and Sabetha stranded 10 baserunners. Siemens helped lead the offense for Marysville going 2-2 with two runs scored, an RBI and two walks, while recording the final out of the contest earning him McDonald's "Player of the Game" honors on KNZA. Latta also notched a two-hit day going 2-3 with three RBI's and a walk, while Roever tossed six an two-thirds strong innings for the win. Sabetha was led by Brownlee who went 3-3 with a RBI and hit by pitch, while Seth Burdick and Brett Stallbaumer each had two hits and Blake Frey tossed four and one-third innings of solid relief. 

Game two saw a wave of walks for Sabetha early as they used 10 walks in the first inning along with four hits to nearly bat around twice and score 12 runs. A Joe Gruber two RBI single highlighted the first for Sabetha as the capitalized on the free pass. Sabetha tacked on another run in the second and the game was 13-0 entering the fourth when Marysville finally got on the board. A leadoff single followed by a double and an error in the inning got Marysville two runs but Braden Argabright struckout three in the inning to end the contest via run-rule at 13-2 in the fourth. 

Argabright tossed all four innings giving up two runs on four hits and struckout six in the contest and went 1-2 with a double and two walks. While Gruber was 1-2 with three RBI's, a run scored and walk for Sabetha. Haggard, Siemens, Lindhorst and Wetter each notched a hit for Marysville in the loss. 

The split moved Marysville to 10-3 on the season, while Sabetha moved to 9-5 on the season. 

Oskaloosa Splits Non-League DH With Ottawa
Oskaloosa stepped outside of NEKL play and traveled to Ottawa for a non-league doubleheader and split the action falling 10-0 but bouncing back with a 7-3 win.

Game one was all Ottawa as they scored a run in the bottom of the first inning and then tacked on three runs in the fourth and six in the fifth to secure the 10-0 win in five innings. Oskaloosa struggled in the matchup as they were unable to record a hit and committed three errors. 

The second game of the night was a different story from the first as Oskaloosa got the bats going early with two-runs in the top of the first but Ottawa managed a run in the bottom of the inning to make it 2-1. Oskaloosa scratched another run across in the third but Ottawa tied the contest in the bottom of the fourth knotting the game at 3-3. It remained tied until the top of the seventh inning when Oskaloosa broke through to score four runs and used that output to take game two 7-3 over Ottawa. Diego Cervantez tossed all seven innings for the win for Oskaloosa, while also recording two of the team's eight hits. Cooper Jepson drew three walks and had an RBI for Oskaloosa. 

The split moved Oskaloosa to 6-5 on the season. 

Silver Lake Takes Two On Road Over Corning

Silver Lake jumped on top early with a Trent Byers solo home run in the top of the first but Corning had an answer in the bottom of the inning on a Kamble Haverkamp solo home run to tie the game at 1-1. In the second Silver Lake took advantage of one of four Corning errors and scored two runs and ultimately used 12 hits to pound out nine runs with the big inning being a five run fourth on the way to the 9-3 win. Jake Lindstrom tossed four solid innings giving up two runs on five hits and struckout five for Silver Lake, while Mitchell Flanagan, Justin Keller, Josh Boyd and Cale Adams each had a two hit game. Haverkamp, Trenton Flentie and Hunter Koch had a multi-hit game for Corning in the loss.
