            MOUNDRIDGE – It was a rough day for the Moundridge baseball team on Thursday as they hosted Remington and found themselves on the losing side of both ends of the doubleheader, losing game one 13-2 and dropping the second game 7-1.

            While the offense struggled with getting hits, only four between the two games, the Wildcat defense gave up six errors in each game, providing Remington with extra opportunities to stay on base and score.

            In game one, Remington started out slow with just runs through three innings before pushing across four in the fourth, three in the fifth and four more in the sixth while holding Moundridge to just two runs in the fifth.

            Camden Dalke had the lone hit in the game for the Wildcats.

Clay Wilson, Logan Churchill and London Ward all shared time on the mound for Moundridge, giving up 11 hits, 10 earned runs, walking a pair and striking out three.

            The Wildcats held a 1-0 advantage at the end of the first inning when Remington chipped away with two in the second, one in the third, two more in the fourth and then one each in the fifth and seventh innings in getting the sweep with a 7-1 victory.

            Three Wildcat freshmen – Clay Wilson, Layton Schmidt, and Lars Tegethoff – accounted for all three Moundridge hits with Schmidt’s being a double.

            Layton Schmidt worked five innings on the mound and London Ward threw the other two as the duo combined to give up seven hits, just four earned runs while walking three and striking out nine.

            Now just 1-5 for the season, Moundridge will be back in action on their home diamond on Tuesday, April 11 against Bennington.
