  • Canton-Galva had things going their way against Inman in game one of a Heart of America League doubleheader.
    The Eagles were up 3-1 going into the top of the fifth inning, but the Teutons rallied and scored five runs, all unearned, to turn the tide in their favor.
    When the dust settled Tuesday, Inman had swept the twinbill, winning 9-6 and 7-1.
     “We just can't seem to make any plays behind our pitchers,” Canton-Galva coach Kelly Nelson said.
    Tanner Klingensmith took the loss for Canton-Galva in game one, as he went four and two-thirds innings, striking out seven and walking five. He gave up one earned run, six in total, off three hits.
    Klingensmith helped his own cause, as he went 2-for-3 with a double,  a triple and three RBIs. Connor Farnham two hits, one a double, while Ethan Loyd had a pair of singles and two RBIs.
    Jacob Dailey worked all seven innings of game two, giving up five hits and seven runs, three of which were earned. He struck out five and walked seven.
    The Eagles only managed four hits, all singles, with Loyd recording the lone RBI.
    Inman statistics were unavailable at press time.
    The Eagles are on the road Friday at Hillsboro, while the Teutons have a showdown with Moundridge.
    Wildcats pound Bennington
    BENNINGTON — The best way, perhaps, to sum up Moundridge’s sweep of Bennington Tuesday is to look at the total hits.
    Moundridge, over the two games, had 37 hits.
    Bennington had nine.
    The Wildcats were full throttle in both games, winning game one 20-1 and game two 17-5.
    “Our offense got off to a good start in the first inning and we kept the foot on the gas the rest of the way,” Moundridge coach Lynn Eichelberger said of the game one win, “scoring in every inning.  Our 2-5 hole hitters [Devin Clark, Garrett Higgins, Hunter Enyart and Trenton Olson] were 12-17 in the game and hit the ball all over the place.”
    Perhaps most impressively in the game one domination, the Wildcats  (4-6) didn’t commit a single error throughout the five-inning game.
    For the twinbill, Moundridge only committed two.
    Enyart went 4-for-5 in game one with five RBIs to lead the Wildcats. Higgins, Dylan Sugars, Antony Otte, Devin Clark and Olson all had multiple hit performances in the first game.
    Higgins got the win, going all five innings and allowing only three hits, striking out eight and walking three.
    Moundridge scored 14 runs in the first two innings on their way to the 17-5 game two win.
    Page 2 of 2 - Kyle Huxman was phenomenal at the plate, going 4-for-4, with all four hits coming up as doubles. He scored three times and drove in two.
    Enyart had two doubles, while Olson, Kyle Stucky and Corey Barton all added extra-base knocks of their own.
    Eynart and Clark  both had three RBIs, while Olson and Stucky added two.
    Stucky got the win, as he went all five innings. He gave up five runs, two earned, on six hits, striking out five and walking five.
    “After the first inning, Stucky settled down on the mound and pitched a nice game,” Eichelberger said.
    The Wildcats host Inman on Friday, with the Teutons coming off a sweep of Canton-Galva on Tuesday.
    Little River extends win streak to eight
    BROOKEVILLE — While their recent streak of no-hitters was snapped Tuesday, Little River extended their win streak out to eight games in a sweep of Ell-Saline.
    The Redskins are 9-3 on the year and haven’t lost since April 8 in a doubleheader with Marion.
    Tevin Renken allowed only one hit in the first game against the Cardinals, as he guided the Redskins to a 10-1 win.
    Renken struck out ten of the 18 batters he faced, walking only two.
    He also helped his own cause with a 2-for-3 showing at the plate, scoring once.
    Cordell Moore made the most of his one plate appearance, as he drilled a two-run home run for Little River.
    Levi Baldwin had four RBIs on two hits, both doubles.
    Ell-Saline threatened to break the streak in game two, as they held a 2-1 lead entering the third inning.
    Little River exploded for six unanswered runs, however, to pick up the 7-3 win.
    Moore had the win in game two, giving up three runs, one earned, while striking out six and walking six.
    Renken and Moore both had two RBIs for Little River.
