    Moundridge pulls off split with Ell-Saline
    MOUNDRIDGE — The Moundridge baseball team got an idea of just how good the defending Class 2-1A champions are.
    Ell-Saline, predicted by many to repeat in 2014, found out prognostications don’t equal wins on the diamond.
    The Wildcats stunned Ell-Saline in game one of a doubleheader at Moundridge High School Tuesday, winning 15-3 in just two-and-a-half innings due to the run rule.
    Garrett Higgins picked up the win, as he pitched all three innings for Moundridge, giving up only a pair of hits, walking three and striking out four.
    Moundridge coach Lynn Eichelberger saw his first five batters all reach on base in both games of the doubleheader, as the offense was able to hit the ball.
    In game one, Hunter Enyart and Corey Barton both went 2-for-3 with two RBIs.
    Trenton Olson and Kyle Stucky both had doubles, while Devin Clark had a triple.
    Unfortunately, Stucky suffered a sprained ankle in the final inning of the first game, forcing Eichelberger to scramble a bit, as he was due to start gamet wo.
    Nick Leddy got the start, but gave up eight runs and was relieved by freshman Dylan Sugars, who worked the next four innings and got the Wildcats back into the game, though they ultimately came up short 13-9.
    “Sugars came in and settled down and we chipped away at the lead,” Eichelberger said, “and brought the winning run to the plate in the bottom of the seventh with the bases loaded, but could not get the ball in the outfield.”
    Page 2 of 2 - Offensively, Higgins had the big game for Moundridge, as he went 4-for-5 with two doubles and four RBIs.
    Olson went 3-for-4 with a trio of RBIs, while Anthony Otte had two.
    Leddy took the loss. Kyle Huxman, Corey Barton and Ryan Huxman all pitched in the relief after Sugars left the game in the fifth.
    The Wildcats moved to 2-6 on the year.
    “I told our players it is not very often the defending state champions come to town,” Eichelberger said, “and we played solid baseball for most of the day.”
    Smoky Valley swept by Hillsboro
    LINDSBORG — Smoky Valley gave Hillsboro all it could handle in the first game of Tuesday’s home doubleheader, as they rallied from down 4-0 to take a brief lead in the fifth inning.
    With one swing, the Trojans’ Cody Delk took the wind right out of their sails.
    Delk stepped up to the plate in the Hillsboro sixth inning and belted a shot to deep left field. The Vikings scrambled to recover the ball as Delk rounded the bases and came home for a two-run, inside the park home run.
    It proved to be the winning hit, as Hillsboro won 7-5.
    The second game saw the Trojans pull out the sweep, winning 18-8.
    Scoring and stats were unavailable at press time.
    Eagles drop two to Marion
    MARION — Give credit to Canton-Galva’s Nick Bray.
    The junior gave up only two earned runs to a Marion team that has run-ruled teams as a matter of course this season.
    Bray gave up seven hits in the 6-0 loss, walking seven and striking out nine.
    “It's just too bad we couldn't come up with any run support for him,” Canton-Galva coach Kelly Nelson said.
    Jacob Dailey and Bray, himself, had the only game hits for the Eagles, with Dailey’s a double.
    Game two saw Connor Farnham took the 12-2 loss in game two. Bray, Tanner Klingensmith and Jacob Struber all had hits in the game.
    Struber and Ethan Loyd each had an RBI.
    Canton-Galva is at home Tuesday against Inman.
