Kings baseball buries Gophers, 17-0

Caston softball knocks off John Glenn.

Lewis Cass’ baseball team opened the season with a 17-0 win in five innings at Clinton Prairie.

John Hartley, Hunter Clark and Dakota Hammond combined for a no-hitter for the Class 2A No. 9 Kings. The Cass trio fanned six and walked two.

The Kings bashed out 15 hits and took advantage of six Gopher errors.

Ryan Bixler had a triple and two doubles for Cass. Jake Miller had a double and two singles. Kyle Dwiggins had three hits. R.J. Phillips and Ty Stover each had a single and double.

“They were very aggressive and had an aggressive mentality,” Cass coach Greg Marschand said of his squad. “Our pitchers challenged the hitters and threw strikes. We’re looking to get better every week. They’re a fun group to watch and a fun group to coach.”

The Kings have a doubleheader at Eastbrook today starting at 10 a.m.


Caston 5, John Glenn 2

The Comets defeated visiting Class 3A Glenn to improve to 2-0.

Tori Rentschler held the Falcons to two runs on five hits and no walks in a complete-game effort. She fanned five.

Glenn tied the game 2-2 with a pair of runs in the top of the sixth before Caston answered with three in the bottom of the frame.

Tori and Tierney Rentschler had two hits apiece for the Comets. Madison Taylor and Bailee Hook each had a base hit, RBI and run scored. Cat Diveley had a hit and two runs scored. Adrienne Frye added a hit and she scored the go-ahead run in the sixth.

LaCrosse 4, Winamac 1

Winamac (0-2) fell behind early to LaCrosse as the Tigers scored all four runs in the first five innings. The Warriors came back with their only run in the sixth.

Macy Bischoff led Winamac with three singles in four plate appearances. Bethany Brogdon was the losing pitcher. Brogdon pitched all seven innings, allowing four runs (one earned) on five hits and three walks, while striking out nine Tigers.

“I thought Brogdon pitched well enough to win, and we just haven’t started hitting yet,” Winamac coach Jenny Belcher said. “We have opportunities with five games next week.”
