Warriors keep streak alive at 8 games

Staff writer

Neither of Friday’s games made it past the fourth inning. Marion extended its baseball winning streak to eight games by sweeping Ell-Saline 15-3 and 14-2 in mercy-rule victories at home.

Kadon Mercer was the winning pitcher in Game One; Gavin Wasmuth in Game Two.

Jack Lanning touched home plate four times in the first game. The Warriors scored 15 runs on only eight hits.

Wasmuth and Jameson Looper were responsible for six of the hits.

It was a different story for Game Two. The Warriors scored 14 runs on 13 hits. Trevor Schafers led the team with three runs and three hits in three at-bats.

With only a handful of games left, the Warriors will hit the road Friday to play against Inman.

Dawson Boldt led the team in Game One with a run and a hit.

Cade Gossen and Dalton Philpott touched home plate as well. Jaeten Loewen and Zander Haslett each had a hit.
