INMAN — It’s a rebuilding season for both the Inman and Little River baseball teams after both were among the best in Class 2-1A last season.

The new-look Teutons and Redskins hooked up for their season openers on Tuesday and nothing was settled.

In Game 1, the Teutons came away with a 6-3 victory behind the solid pitching of Walker Strange. He worked into the sixth inning before Noah Tuscan came on to nail it down and between them they allowed just two hits, one a double by Jeb Sauer.

Inman chipped away in small increments, scoring in four of the six innings. Ethan DeWitt had a double for Inman’s big hit.

The Redskins came back to win the second game in eight innings, 10-6. Little River scored in five of the innings, including four runs in the eighth to break a 6-all tie.

Sauer had a huge game with three hits and four RBIs to lead the winners. Levi Swenson was the winning pitcher, working  7 1/3 innings, with Levon Swenson earning the save.

Tuscan hit a double for the Teutons.
