Redskins off to 6-0 start
L&T staff report
So far, the only thing that has slowed down the Liberal Redskin baseball team has been the rain.
Other than that, Liberal has been red hot, and two more wins Saturday pushed the Redskins to 6-0.
Cole Evans continued to dominate on the mound, and while giving up three walks in four innings was out of character, striking out 10 batters in the same period was not. Evans continued to be a deadly on the mound, limiting Guymon to only one hit in a 12-2 run-rule win.
Not only did Evans get the job done on the mound, but he helped his own cause at the plate with a 2 for 4 performance with five RBIs.
Kaleb Wilmes added a triple and relieved Evans after four innings. He only allowed one hit and no runs, and the Redskins ended the game an inning early with a 12-2 win.
Cade Hinkle also joined Wilmes and Evans with two hits in the victory.
In the nightcap, the Redskins only needed three innings to earn their sixth win of the season with an 18-3 mauling of the Tigers.
Walks became a problem for Guymon, giving up 11 free bases in three innings, and the Redskins added 10 hits.
Braxton Hyde took the mound for the Redskins and only gave one free pass and struck out a batter while allowing three runs on four hits.
Cesar Burciaga, Jett Brown, Francisco Terrazas, Kaiden Bigham, Wilmes, Elijah McCarter and Hinkle each had two RBIs in the win. Brown had a triple, and Evans had a double.
The Redskins will start the Western Athletic Conference schedule Thursday with a road trip to Hays. First pitch is scheduled for 2 p.m.
