Rangers roll with array of aid

From Herald Staff Reports

Forest Park wasn’t anticipating an evening on its home turf. But the Rangers welcomed an unexpected home game. That, and a comprehensive beating of a Pocket Athletic Conference foe.


The Class 2A No. 10 Rangers whipped Tecumseh 8-0 in a game played at Ferdinand after being moved from its originally scheduled site at Lynnville earlier in the day. Kyle Schlachter (1-0), Ben Kitten and Bryan Hurst combined to fire a three-hitter for the Rangers (2-1, 1-0), who gashed the game open with a seven-run fourth inning.

Hurst also invigorated the offense by going 3-for-4 with a pair of RBIs. Adam Braunecker drove home three runs while Lance Buechler and Jared Wilgus each tacked on two hits in Forest Park’s 10-hit attack.

In other baseball:

Jeeps 7, Bluejackets 3: Kristopher Weisheit blanked Mitchell over the last four innings, spurring Northeast Dubois through a comeback victory on the road after the Jeeps trailed 3-1 into the fifth inning.

Jace Terwiske and Jacob Gress both belted a double, and Terwiske knocked in two runs for the Jeeps (3-1). Austin Kunz, Joe Gress and Gage Knies all supplied RBIs to back Weisheit, who whiffed six and permitted only one walk and two earned runs.

Braves 1, Wildcats 0: Class 1A No. 3 Tecumseh scraped together the game’s lone run in the bottom of the seventh inning via an error, base hit and wild pitch to terminate Jasper’s win streak at four games.

Jasper’s Keegan Katter waged a pitching face-off with Tecumseh’s Tiffany Summers, and Katter allowed just two hits while the Cats (4-2) couldn’t capitalize on their four hits.
