Webber opens with win

Bush knocks in 3 runs


Logan Ganieany shook off a slow start on the mound, and Webber cruised to a 13-3 win against Odin on Monday night.

The baseball game was the opening round for both teams in the Webber Spring Kick-Off Tourney.

Odin scored all of its runs in the opening inning against Ganieany on just one hit. The inning included a pair of walks and passed ball.

We needed that adversity right off the bat,” Webber coach Sam Root said. “It's a good thing, and I'm pleased with how we responded.”

Ganieany rallied to finish the six-inning game strong. The Webber hurler pitched four innings for the victory and allowed two hits. He added nine strikeouts and struck out the side in the second and fourth innings.

Logan is good, a little wild the first, but it's the first time throwing off that new mound,” Root said. “And it was nice, we kept his pitch count low to have him ready for Saturday.”

Webber took a commanding lead after the third inning behind its offense. The Trojans scored seven times in the second and third innings to seize a 7-3 edge.

We have to be smart on the bases. We have to work counts. We have to put the ball in play, hit it where it's pitched,” Root said. “And I thought we had some people do that pretty well.”

Chris Bush finished with two hits and three RBI to lead Webber. Zane Austin added a hit and two RBI. Gage Raudenbush finished with two hits.

It's just trying to get that lineup as deep as possible one through nine,” Root said.

Webber continued its offensive explosion in the fifth inning. Michael Gartin drew a bases loaded walk to make the lead 8-3 for Webber. Bush rapped a single that scored two runs. Another run scored when the ball skipped past the Odin right fielder. Jaxon Helm made the score 12-3 with an RBI fielder's choice.

Webber tacked on its final run in the sixth. Jordan Wheeler and Lane Moser pitched the final two innings with Moser getting the final Odin hitter to ground out

Webber faces Patoka which beat Norris City 5-0. The semifinal game is at 6:30 p.m. Wednesday night.
