Seneca blanks Hiawatha in sweep

Behind a pair of dominant pitching performances Seneca earned a pair of run-rule victories over Hiawatha on Sunday 8-0 and 10-0.

In game one Seneca jumped out to a 3-0 lead in the first inning thanks to a two-run triple by Landen Baker and a wild pitch which allowed Baker to score the third run in the inning.

Seneca added another run in the second on an RBI single by Eric Hammes before opening the game open in the fifth with three runs on just two hits and RBI from Baker, Dalton Heurter and Zac Kramer.

Seneca then ended the game in the sixth as Eric Hammes scored on a wild pitch to end the game via the run-rule.

Kramer was named our McDonald’s Player of the Game on 103.9 KNZA as he was on base three times with one run scored and an RBI, while on the mound was dominant tossing all six innings allowing just two hits while striking out 12 and walking just three.

Seneca had just five hits in the game with Baker collecting two and three RBI.

Game two was all Seneca from the start as they jumped out early and ended the game in the fourth inning winning 10-0.

John Strathman was nearly perfect on the mound for Seneca as he tossed a complete game 1-hitter on just 46 pitches with three strikeouts and just one walk.

Trent Schmitz added two RBI at the plate while the game ended on a straight steal of home by Andrew Leonard.

Doniphan County splits with Corning

In the most competitive doubleheader of the night and possibly the season D.C. and Corning split a doubleheader with Doniphan County taking game one 9-8 in eight innings while Corning took the second 4-3.

Game one was back-and forth throughout with D.C. racing out to a 7-3 lead after two, before Corning came back and tied the game with one run in the fourth, three in the fifth and one in the top of the seventh after Doniphan tacked on another run in the fourth.

The game remained tied heading into the eighth inning before Broc Studer delivered the walk-off hit on a single for Doniphan County.

The two teams combined for 25 hits in the contest with D.C. getting three hits each from Charlie Grable and Kobe Davis while Davis added three RBI as well.

Jack Libel was also big on the mound as he tossed the final three innings allowing just three hits and one unearned run.

Corning received three hits from Drew Gibbs in the loss while Zach Fischer and Ian Haverkamp each added two hits.

Game two was another extra inning affair with Corning getting two runs in the sixth before holding off D.C. in the bottom of the inning to earn the split with a 4-3 win.

Corning jumped out to a 2-0 lead in the first inning before Doniphan County tied the game with a pair of runs in the fourth.

In the top of the sixth Corning plated the eventual game-winning runs on RBI’s from Fischer and Austin Holthaus while in the sixth Ian Haverkamp shut the door allowing just one unearned run.

Fischer, Holthaus and Kamble Haverkamp each finished with two hits in the win while Holthaus added two RBI.

Marysville and Topeka split doubleheader

In a pair of completely different games on Sunday Marysville and Topeka split a doubleheader with Marysville taking game one 10-1 while Topeka bounced back for a 4-3 win in game two.

Game one was all Marysville as they plated four runs in the second, three in the third and three more in the fourth to force the run-rule after five innings.

Marysville collected 14 hits in the win with Ben Kirkland, Ayden Price, Storm Slupianek, Trey Siemens, Brandon Schroedl and Owen Nietfeld each racking up two hits.

Price also threw all five innings in the win allowing just one unearned run on six hits while striking out four.

Game two was Topeka jumping out to a lead early with one run in the first and four more in the third before having to hold off a late Marysville rally to win 5-4.

Marysville scored three runs in the fifth to make things interesting, but Topeka’s Kyle Bohnenkamper came on for the final out to preserve the split for the Senators.

Despite the loss Marysville did get two hits and three RBI from Ayden Price while Jon Haggard added the only other RBI.

Brody Lister also threw well despite the loss as he allowed five unearned runs on just three hits with his defense letting him down committing four errors.
