  • Little River continued to make it’s case for a state championship berth Friday as it swept Moundridge in convincing fashion 17-2 and 14-5.
    “We started the game not throwing strikes and got behind early,” Moundridge coach Lynn Eichelberger said of the game one loss. “We batted through it and were in the game until the fourth inning, when the wheels came off and we could not get an out.”
    The Redskins, ranked No. 5 in Tuesday’s Kansas Association of Baseball Coaches Class 2-1A rankings, erupted for 10 runs in the bottom of the fourth to get the 15-run rule.
    The Wildcats (5-9) were held to only a pair of his by Little River pitcher Levi Baldwin, who went all four innings. Baldwin only had one earned run attributed to him and struck out eight batters while walking five.
    Hunter Enyart took the loss for Moundridge after starting on the mound. He went two innings and gave up seven runs, five earned, on three hits. He walked four and struck out one.
    Corey Barton gave up nine runs in relief. Anthony Otte also worked a third of an inning.
    Dalton Arnold went 2-for-2 at the plate for Little River.
    Moundridge held the early lead through an inning and a half in game two, but the Redskins (11-3) scored 12 runs over the course of the second and third innings.
    Kyler Cox got the win for Little River after coming into the game in the second in relief of starter Tevin Renken.
    Garrett Higgins took the loss for Moundridge after working the first two innings.
