COTTONWOOD FALLS — Moundridge’s baseball team will take some much-needed momentum into next week’s Class 2-1A regional on its home field.

The Wildcats, who entered Tuesday with just three wins, swept Chase County on Tuesday to improve to 5-15.

It all came together for the Wildcats in the first game as they punished the Bulldogs for 12 hits and did not commit an error to spark a 9-3 victory.

Noah Eichelberger had three hits and scored two runs, while Kyle Stucky also roped three hits. Nick Leddy had two hits and drove in three runs, as the first three hitters in the order accounted for eight hits. Lower in the order, Luke Ratzlaff had a big game with two hits and three runs scored.

Chris Leddy allowed two hits and two runs over five innings of work to notch the “W.”

The Wildcats had a rollicking good time in the second game, pounding out an 18-5 tattooing.

Eichelberger had another huge game, going 3 for 4 with four runs scored. Bryant Olson and Dylan Sugars added two hits apiece, while Sugars and Trenton Olson drove in two apiece. The Wildcats were tremendously consistent, scoring in six of their seven at-bats.

Trenton Olson took advantage of all that offense to do some dealing on the mound, giving up just five hits and two earned runs.

Moundridge should learn of its regional pairing today.
