Rams win one, lose one Wednesday night
By Sue Rieder
The Ram varsity baseball and softball teams split with Collins-Maxwell-Baxter in Jefferson Wednesday night.
Pitcher Marissa Promes struck out 11 batters and did not walk anyone as the softball team won 6-1.
After getting behind 1-0 in the second inning, the team scored runs in the third, fourth and fifth innings to take control of the game.
Hannah Onken had a memorable night at the plate, connecting on a single, a double and a solo home run. Kayla Mobley also had three hits and was credited with three RBIs.
The varsity baseball team faced a talented CMB pitcher, Brady Stover, who fanned 17 Ram batters and led the Raiders to a 2-0 victory.
Ram pitcher Riah Nelsen only gave up four hits and one walk while striking out eight.
Unfortunately, two of the hits and the lone walk were all in the same inning, and the Raiders got the runs they needed for the win.
