Lansing baseball takes two from BLHS

April 7, 2011

The doubleheader was moved up a day to avoid potential thunderstorms, but that didn't keep the Basehor-Linwood baseball team from getting rained on.

Lansing poured on the runs in a doubleheader sweep of BLHS, 15-0 and 13-3, on Wednesday at LHS.

Game one lasted just four innings as the Lions scored 11 times in the bottom of the first inning, once more in the second and three more times in the fourth.

Lansing pitcher Scott Moore dazzled as he allowed just one hit. Tyler Ogden's base hit cost Moore a no-hitter.

The Lions scattered numerous hits, but they primarily punished the Bobcats for allowing walks. BLHS pitchers Garret Kahle and Skyler Barnes combined for nine walks.

In game two, BLHS struck for two runs in the bottom of the first inning for a 2-0 lead. Lansing scored once in the top of the second, and the Lions took control with a four-run third before steadily pulling away for the six-inning, run-rule victory.

Destry Bryan took the loss for BLHS despite allowing just two earned runs. Bryan and Brett Bailes both pitched in the game and combined to allow six walks.

Nathan Quigley led the BLHS offense with a 2-for-3 effort at the plate and a run scored. Ogden, Bryan and Jared Patton also had hits for the Bobcats. Patton's double plated two runs.

Basehor-Linwood (2-2) next plays a doubleheader at 3 p.m. Monday at home against Piper.
