Clarke 15, Mt. Ayr 3
The Raider baseball team had a rough start to their season with a final score of 15-3 against the Clarke Indians. The Raiders held off the Indians in the first inning, with the score being 1-0, Raiders leading at the end of the first inning.
The Indians had big sticks starting the second inning, bringing in a total of 14 more runs throughout the rest of the game, with three being in the second, two in the third, eight in the fourth and the final two runs in the fifth.
This did not keep the Raiders from pushing on, though, as they went on to put up two more runs in the bottom of the fifth, but it wasn’t enough to give them another inning considering the “mercy rule.”
Mt. Ayr 10, EU 8
After losing the first game of their season to Clarke earlier in the week, the Raider baseball team was ready to play when they went on the road against East Union.
The team came out strong in the first inning, allowing three runs for the Eagles and putting up two for themselves, making sure not to let the Eagles get too far out of reach.
The Raiders then went on to put up 1 in the third, two in the fourth, one in the sixth and then two more in both the seventh and the eighth innings to ultimately win them the game, 10-8.
The team used four of their players on the mound Thursday night which included Rowan Sackett, Tate Dugan, Adler Reed and Jaixen Frost. The pitchers accumulated eight total innings pitched, with 146 pitches thrown and 11 strikeouts.
After the second game of the season, Jaixen Frost leads the Raider baseball team with a batting average of .800, and a pitching ERA of .000.
Central Decatur 10, Mt. Ayr 1
The Raiders were on the road again last Friday to play against the Central Decatur Cardinals, who this season has had the Lamoni baseball team join their roster due to the Demon’s lack of players.
The Cardinals came out strong in the first inning putting up four runs, where the Raiders were not able to get anyone across the plate.
In the third inning, the Raiders were able to score one, but that was not enough to keep the momentum going, as that was the only point they were able to put on the board throughout the game.
