Raptors fall to Silver Lake in doubleheader

After falling to Wymore a few days before, the Sabetha American Legion Raptors were looking to bring home a couple of wins when they traveled to Silver Lake Tuesday, June 5. Both games were close for the majority of the game, but Silver Lake would pull ahead in the final inning to win both games – 7-6 in game one and 2-1 in game two.

Game one

Both teams remained scoreless during the first inning, and Sabetha would be the first to get on the board — scoring one run in the second, but Silver Lake pulled ahead in the bottom of the second by scoring four runs.

Sabetha slowly closed the gap, scoring on run in the third and another in the fifth. Sabetha scored another two in the sixth and one in the seventh, but Silver Lake never gave up their lead and would win game one, 7-6.

Braden Argabright went three for five on the day and tallied one RBI, while Seth Burdick went two for four on the day. Brett Stallbaumer also went one for three on the day scoring two runs and tallying one RBI.

Game two

Game two was slower for both teams, with Sabetha getting on the board first and scoring their only run in the first inning. Silver Lake tied it up during the bottom of the second. Defenses for both teams kept the other team from scoring, but Silver Lake pulled ahead after scoring one run in the bottom of the fifth.

Argabright and Mason Spellmeier led the Raptors offensively. Argabright went one for three at the plate, with one run scored and tallying one RBI. Spellmeier went two for two on the day.
