    Moundridge drops pair to Inman
    INMAN — Moundridge head coach Lynn Eichelberger admits his team got complacent in the sixth inning of game one Tuesday.
    The Wildcats had gone up 13-5 on cross-county rival Inman going into the bottom of the frame.
    That’s when disaster struck.
    Treyton DeVore doubled to center off Wildcat pitcher Garrett Higgins that drove in two.
    Jonathan Landeros drove a single to the exact same spot that scored both DeVore and Wyatt Regehr.
    The hits kept coming for the Teutons, as Blake Drueker doubled, scoring two. DeVore completed the round with an RBI single and, when the dust settled, Inman was up 15-13 after scoring 10 runs.
    “After our 10 run sixth inning,” Eichelberger said, “we got too relaxed and obviously let Inman back in the game and could not get an out. We did some good things, but give Inman credit, they did a nice job of hitting at the end of the game.”
    Kyle Huxman took the loss, working only two-thirds of an inning. He gave up six runs, only one earned, off three hits. He walked three and struck out one.
    Noah Tuscan was credited with the win after going two-thirds of an inning, himself. He gave up one hit, no runs and struck out two, while walking two. DeVore picked up a save after pitching the final inning, walking one and not giving up a hit.
    Game two was all Teutons, as Inman rolled to a 15-0 win, scoring 10 runs in the first two innings.
    Taylor Almquist had the hit of the night, as he blasted a home run to center field that scored three and put the Teutons up 8-0.
    Almquist finished the game with five total RBIs to lead Inman.
    DeVore went 2-for-3 with three RBIs, while Landeros and Spiece both had two.
    Nick Leddy and Trenton Olson both had the only hits for Moundridge.
    Page 2 of 2 - Tuscan was the winner, going four innings, giving up two hits, walking one and striking out one.
    Kyle Stucky took the loss, working an inning and two-thirds. He gave up nine runs off three hits, walking seven and striking out three.
    Leddy, Corey Barton and Trenton Olson also saw time on the mound for the Wildcats (5-11).
    Little River blows past Canton-Galva
    GALVA — Little River jumped on Canton-Galva early in both games Tuesday at Galva, winning 13-2 and 19-6.

    Levi Baldwin got the win for the Redskins, as he gave up two runs on three hits. He struck out seven and walked five.
    Laramie Peters had the hit of the night, as he belted a grand slam to left field on a 1-1 pitch from Farnham that put the Redskins (13-5) up over the run rule number.
