Webber knocks off Cisne

Score eight in final 2 innings


The offensive floodgates finally opened for Webber's baseball team.

The Trojans pounded out eight runs in the final two innings to beat Cisne 9-2 Monday.

I felt it was our inability to adjust,” Webber coach Sam Root said. “I was frustrated early on, but we found a way to win.”

Webber had just a single hit in the first four innings but was able to still get base runners with a patient plate approach. The Trojans walked a dozen times against Cisne's four pitchers.

Sometimes when people are wild, it's kind of hard when you do get a good pitch,” Root said.

Cisne jumped out to a 2-0 lead after a first-inning home run. Webber chipped the deficit down to a run after a Lane Moser bases loaded walk to make the score 2-1.

The score stayed the same until the bottom of the fifth. Logan Ganieany and Gage Raudenbush both drew one-out walks. Jordan Wheeler came up with the bases loaded and hit a two-run single to put Webber up 3-2. Mark Knepler helped the Trojans tack on another run with an RBI hit.

Webber followed up the solid offense with another big inning in the sixth. Raudenbush had a two-run single to give Webber a 6-2 lead. Knepler also had an RBI single. Wheeler and Knepler walked and were hit by a pitch with the bases loaded to force in runs for Webber.

Ganieany pitched six innings and finished with 10 strikeouts for the victory. He finished with three walks. Raudenbush pitched the final inning and had two strikeouts.

(Ganieany) competed, and that's the word we talk about with our pitchers,” Root said. “You have to compete upstairs, and you have to compete physically. So I was proud of him.”

Webber is 14-7 overall this season and 7-1 in the Midland Trail Conference.
