Tonganoxie baseball wins at Lansing
Chieftains hand Lions first home loss
Coming off a successful weekend tournament in Kansas City, Kan., the Tonganoxie High baseball team kept things going at Lansing on Monday, handing the Lions their second loss of the season.
The Chieftains pounded LHS, 17-4, in game one before losing the second part of the doubleheader, 16-6.
Ethan Lorance threw all five innings of the run-spread victory for THS (4-11), striking out seven, while allowing five hits and just two earned runs.
The Tonganoxie offense, meanwhile, benefited from some great production via the bats of Dylan Caywood, Brandon Yoder and Ben Williams.
Seniors Caywood and Yoder were perfect at the plate. Caywood went 5-for-5 with a pair of doubles and two RBIs and Yoder was 4-for-4 with a double and drove in three runs.
Williams drove in two runs, went 4-for-5 with a double and scored three times.
Jeremy Wagner and Tyler Freeman also had multi-hit games with two hits each.
Lansing (13-2) bounced back after suffering its first home loss of the year to win the six-inning second game with ease, but Caywood, Yoder and Williams remained hot at the plate.
Yoder finished the loss 3-for-4 with three RBIs, Williams went 3-for-4 and scored twice and Caywood was 2-for-3 with a pair of runs scored.
Tonganoxie plays host to Bishop Ward on Thursday following a 4 p.m. junior varsity game at Leavenworth County Fairgrounds.
