Raptors split with Eagles

The Raptors traveled on Tuesday, July 5, to Silver Lake for doubleheader action. Sabetha fell behind 6-1 through the first five innings but rallied late in game one, only to come up a run short of tying the game in the top of the sixth. The Eagles topped their guest 6-5 in the opener. Sabetha trailed 3-1 through the first three innings of game two before they scorched off six runs in the final four innings to take the win.

Game One

The Eagles tallied four runs on a walk, a single and a double in the bottom of the first to elevate a healthy lead to start the contest. Sabetha would add their first tally of the night when Will Ulrich had a base on balls, and Chase Frey would bring him around home on a triple in the top of the third.

Silver Lake would add a run in the fourth and one in the fifth for some insurance, but the Raptors gained momentum in the top of the sixth. Sabetha loaded the bases with a lead-off single by Harper Schmelzle, a single by Ulrich and Josh Herrmann being hit by a pitch. Schmelzle scored on a ground out double play, and Ulrich scored on a Christian McAfee double to make the score 6-3. McAfee plated on a Darrin Funk single, and Funk would score on a Jonathan Renyer single to cut the deficit to 6-5.

But the well ran dry and Sabetha fell to Silver Lake, 6-5, in the first game of the night. Funk started on the mound for the Raptors, pitched five innings and gave up six runs on nine hits, while fanning four batters in the loss. Chase Frey finished with the final inning and had one strikeout without allowing any runs and only one hit. Schmelzle was two for three with one RBI and one run scored for the Raptors on the night.

Game Two

After dropping the first game of the night, Sabetha was looking to redeem themselves in the nightcap. Herrmann put his team on the board first in the top of the first inning with a single on a fielder’s choice. He then stole a base, advanced a wild pitch and crossed the plate on a error. Sabetha led 1-0 at the end of the first, but the Eagles would plate two runners in the second and another in the third to pull ahead 3-1 after three innings.

McAfee drove in a run in the top of the fourth inning with a double, and Funk had an RBI single to help their team knot the score at 3-3. Both teams posted runs in the sixth inning to keep the score tied, but Sabetha would make a last inning push.

Renyer helped put his team on top, 5-4, when he plated after a walk, a wild pitch and an error. Ulrich added a run and McAfee added some insurance with a score in the top of the seventh to put the Raptors up 7-4 with a half of an inning to play. The Eagles managed a base runner on an error and one to a single, but a flyout coupled with two strikeouts sealed the victory for Sabetha by a score of 7-4.

Noah Kroll went two for four and McAfee was two of three for the night. Aiden Lang started on the hill for Raptors and the hurler surrendered three runs on three hits over three innings, striking out three. McAfee pitched four innings, allowing just one run on two hits, walking three and striking out nine.
