Trojans slam Wayne City

BLUFORD – Webber's baseball team blasted Wayne City 21-1 Thursday.

Trojans hurler Gage Raudenbush threw his first career no-hitter in the game. Raudenbush fanned six batters and allowed three walks. He struck out the side in the second inning. After coming in for several relief appearances this season, it was Raudenbush's first start of the season.

“That's a pretty unbelievable first start for him then,” Webber coach Sam Root said.

All of the free passes came in the fifth and final inning of the game when the Indians pushed across their only run on a ground out off the bat of Jimmy Zhang.

Webber and Wayne City played after an evening that saw about three hours of consistent rain. The late-night downpour washed out most other sporting events in the area.

“Every day that you get a chance to play is a great opportunity,” Root said. “Because it's going to be over before long. For our seniors, today marked the first game of the second half our season. We'll do whatever we have to do to get (the field) ready.”

Ty Henderson launched a long two-run homer to right field and finished with four RBI. Koaltin Dye added three hits and five RBI. Levi Aydt finished with four hits and four RBI.

“We've had a good offensive year so far,” Root said. “We need to keep improving, and I thought it was a good day that everybody got to get in and get some swings.”

After a scoreless opening inning, Webber's offense exploded for 16 runs in the second inning. The Trojans pounded out 12 hits in the inning and drew four walks. A total of 21 batters stepped to the plate against Wayne City starter Ethan Spicer during the inning.

The Trojans are 14-4 overall this season and travel to Marion's Rent One Park where they play Cisne today.
