In the win, Kolben Klommhaus scored two runs, one double and recorded and RBI to lead the Raiders to victory.
On the mound, Isaac Grose threw all seven innings, racking up 107 pitches while striking out six batters and allowing three runs on three hits.
“We were down three nothing, the guys kept up a positive attitude, Isaac kept throwing really well, we played solid defense behind him, we just kept over swinging,” said coach Chris Elwood. “Briar Knapp hit those two to give us a little cushion and Isaac was able to finish up. Very pleased with the victory, Southwest Valley is a very tough team.”

SEW 9, Mt. Ayr 2
The Raiders stuck with Southeast Warren throughout most of the contest last Friday, a respectable feat against the number three team in the state.
The Raiders fell behind 3-0 midway through the contest, but continued to battle.
Cayden Lambert scored a run for the Raiders as well as Austin Greenland.
Dawson Swank received the loss after five innings pitched and 89 pitches thrown. Swank allowed eight runs on nine hits and struck out one batter.
The Raiders first score came in the sixth inning and the game came to 3-1.
Southeast Warren kicked it into gear on their at-bat and put up six runs to shut the door on the Raider comeback attempt.
The Raiders sit at 5-4 on the season.
“We had a frew base-runnring mishaps we feel we could have had a couple more runs,” said coach Elwood. “After the sixth inning they really timed up Dawson and were hitting him hard and that’s going to happen they are a great hitting team. Overall we are pleased and we feel like we’ve had a great week and hopefully we can carry that into next week.”
