BENNINGTON — Moundridge High School's baseball team went on the road Tuesday to Bennington and came away with a sweep, winning game one 7-5 and game two 10-0 in just five innings. The Wildcats pounded out 18 hits in capturing the wins.
Dylan Sugars led the Wildcats on the mound and at the plate in game one. Sugars pitched five innings, gave up six hits, two earned runs, three walks and struck out seven. He also went 2 for 4 at the plate, scoring one run.
Caleb Frye, Bryant Olson and Remington Creed also contributed two hits a piece for Moundridge. Six Wildcats batters were credited with an RBI each.
"We finally scored some runs to compliment Dylan Sugars on the mound today," said Moundridge Coach Lynn Eichelberger. "Dylan pitched well with good control in weather that was not ideal. Devin Fell from Bennington had not lost a game all year on the mound and beating him was a good team accomplishment."
In game two it was all Cats as Chris Leddy and Josh Knight combined on a two hitter on the mound and Noah Eichelberger hammered the ball at the plate, going 3 for 4 with two runs scored and one RBI. Peyton Fast was 2 for 4 with a run scored and three RBIs for Moundridge, who put seven runs on the board in the fourth inning.
Coach Eichelberger said, "As the afternoon went on the colder it got and my goal was to get us on the bus as soon as possible before the cold rain moved in. I guess the players had the same idea."
Leddy picked up the win on the mound for the Wildcats, while the Bulldogs Kyle Shipley was tagged with the loss.
