LITTLE RIVER — The Little River baseball team is playing just as a No. 2-ranked team should.

The Redskins, ranked No. 2 in Class 2-1A, rolled past Canton-Galva 15-0 and 8-3 in a renewal of their rivalry on Friday.

Little River’s record swelled to 10-2 with the sweep.

Redskin ace Cordell Moore unfurled a two-hit shutout in Game 1, walking none and fanning three. Both C-G hits were by Tanner Klingensmith, who was Moore’s opposing pitcher.

Kyler Cox had two doubles and two RBIs to lead Little River. Other leaders were Dalton Arnold (two hits, two RBIs), Tanner Schafer (two hits, two runs scored, two RBIs), JJ Porter (two RBIs) and Damian Martinez (two hits, two runs scored and two RBIs).

The Eagles put up much more resistance in Game 2 as they trailed only 4-3 when Little River tallied the final four runs of the game.

Moore had a big game with two hits and three RBIs. Cox and Tyler Karraker also collected two hits. Grant Harvey was the winner, fanning 11.

Hunter Pearson, Nick Bray and Reed Wiens had hits for C-G, with Connor Farnham taking the loss.

The Eagles are now 3-5 on the year.
