MOUNDRIDGE — Inman’s baseball team relied on some late-game magic to sweep Moundridge in a make-up doubleheader on Thursday.

The Teutons pushed across two runs in the top of the seventh inning of the first game for a 5-3 decision. Inman had posted leads of 1-0 and 3-2 before Moundridge tied it with a run in the sixth. But the Teutons put together an uprising in the seventh for the win.

Ryan Snow carried the big stick for Inman by going 2 for 3 with a double. Moundridge was held to four hits, one a double by Noah Eichelberger.

Both starting pitchers were on their game, with Blake Druecker notching the win and Caleb Frye the tough-luck loser.

In the second game, the Wildcats charged back with three runs in the sixth inning to get it tied at 5-all, but Inman again came up with the late heroics, scoring a run in the seventh for a 6-5 triumph.

Druecker and Wyatt Regehr had two hits apiece for Inman, both of Regehr’s being doubles. Moundridge, which actually out-hit Inman 9-6, was led by Frye with two hits and two RBIs, while Eichelberger had two hits and scored two runs.

Noah Tuscan was the winner in relief for Inman, while Trenton Olson, also in relief, was pinned with the loss.
