MOUNDRIDGE – The Inman baseball team got the bet of Moundridge on Thursday with a sweep of a doubleheader, winning 4-3 in the first game before pounding the Wildcats in the second game 16-0.
In GAME ONE, the Teutons held a 2-0 advantage after the top of the fifth inning before the Wildcats pushed three runs across in the bottom of the fifth to take a 3-2 lead. Inman bounced back with a run in the sixth and seventh to earn the final one-run, 4-3 victroy.
Landen Snyder, Kyler Konrade and Carter Brown worked the mound for the Teutons and held Moundridge to just five hits while walking just three and striking out 11.
For the Wildcats, Anthony Everhart started the game and Wyatt Falco closed it out the final inning. The two combined to throw a three-hitter on 115 pitches while walking five and striking out four.
At the plate, Moundridge was led by Wyatt Falco who hit for a double and knocked across two of the teams three runs.
“Tonight we put ourselves in position to win game one,” noted Moundridge head coach Jason Rains. “We played one of the best games of our season, especially on defense. We just could not get some hard hit balls to drop.”
For Inman, Kyler Konrade made the most of his hit in the game by pounding out a double, while he walked three times and stole four bases as well.
“We had to battle this game out,” explained Inman head coach Matt Mikulecky. “Moundridge pitched the ball extremely well and prevented us from getting anything going. When we were able to hit some balls hard, they made all the plays. I thought it was a very well played game by both teams.”
GAME TWO was all Inman as Carson Munoz and Derick Johnson combined to pitch a three-hit shutout while the Teuton bats woke up and pounded the Wildcats for 16 runs over the third, fourth, and fifth innings.
Jayden Leonhardt led the Teuton bats with three hits, including a pair of doubles while both Derick Johnson and Brant Mikulecky had a pair of hits with each getting a triple as well. Sammy Shober also hit for a double while getting three runs batted in.
The Wildcats used four pitchers to try and slow down the Teutons at the plate as Wyatt Falco started the game before Corbin Unruh, Jon Schlosser and Ethan Brandeweide came on to try and stop the hits from coming.
Wildcat coach Rains concluded his post-game reflections by adding, “Game two was a matter of pitching and Wyatt (Falco) started the game but we needed him to be preserved for regionals next week. Our pitchers didn’t pitch poorly, Inman just was good hitting the club and they hit gaps that we just did not. Still proud of our guys, especially the seniors who walked off our field for the final time tonight. It has been an honor to coach them.”
Moundridge will play Rosalia/Flint Hills in round one of the regionals on Monday at Marion.
Also concluding his post-game reflections, Inman coach Mikulecky said, “After being shut down in the first game, it was good to get the offense going. (Carson) Munoz was really good as he has been all season. It’s been two weeks since we’ve played and I think the boys played pretty good baseball despite the long layoff. Awfully proud of these guys for finishing a great regular season on such a positive note. Now we have our work cut for us as we head to the state regionals.”
The Teutons will play in the Ellis regional.
