Ryle Raiders Baseball: vs.


Ryle 8, Conner 5


After suffering their first loss of the season, the Raiders had to turn around immediately and play the Conner Cougars in their third game of the Scott Knochelman Memorial Tournament. Conner quickly jumped out to a 3-0 lead after 2 1/2 innings. Down but not out, the boys from Union stormed back for 5 runs in the bottom half of the third, highlighted by senior CF Thomas Baumann's double and a couple Conner errors. From there, it was smooth sailing behind the left arm of senior pitcher Tyler Mason, who went 6 innings against a strong Conner hitting attack. The final score was 8-5 in favor of the Raiders.

Offensively, the Raiders were led by the aforementioned Baumann, who collected 2 doubles for the game while driving in 2 runs. Also in mix was junior LF Mason Forbes who collected 2 hits and scored 2 runs, while reaching base in all four of his at bats.
