HUTCHINSON — McPherson High graduate Alex Ruxlow has established himself as a mainstay of the Hutchinson Community College baseball pitching staff.
The big freshman lefty notched his team-leading sixth victory on Wednesday as the Blue Dragons swept Hesston College 13-1 and 9-6. He pitched out of the bullpen in the second game, calming down a Larks rally in the fourth inning and then working a quick fifth inning.
Ruxlow had entered the day with a 5-1 record and 2.41 ERA. In 18 innings, mostly out of the bullpen, he had struck out 13 and allowed only five earned runs.
Ruxlow was an All-AVCTL pitcher last season for McPherson High.
