Moundridge swept in-county rival Inman in a non-Heart of America League doubleheader Friday, winning game one 12-2 and taking game two 9-5.
Senior Wildcat pitcher Daniel Ratzlaff went the full six innings of game one, giving up only three hits and striking out two in the winning effort.
The Wildcats jumped out to a 3-0 lead after the top of the first inning, and extended that out to 12 before Inman managed to get a pair of runs across in the bottom of the sixth.
Jaden Schmidt went 3-for-4 in the game with four RBI’s and one run scored.
Chase Stucky went 2-for-4 with three runs scored. Hunter Enyart had three RBI’s.
“I thought we came out of the gate aggressive on offense,” Moundridge coach Lynn Eichelberger said.
Moundridge again took a quick lead in game two, leading 4-1 after the first inning. The Wildcats scored two more in the second, three in the third and two in the fifth inning.
Inman scored two runs in the fifth and two in the seventh.
Shawn Wadley got the win for Moundridge, pitching six innings and giving up five runs on four hits. He struck out eight.
“(Wadley) is throwing the ball well,” Eichelberger said. “His velocity was down a little bit, as he pitched a complete game on Monday.”
Garrett Higgins had the hot bat in game two for Moundridge, going 4-for-4 with three RBI’s and one run scored.
Enyart added two more RBI’s for the Wildcats.
Friday’s games marked the sixth ballgames this week for Moundridge, where they went 5-1.
“I am proud of our team for competing and playing well this week with one practice,” Eichelberger said.
