Sabetha sweeps Riverside

Junior Gabe Garber leads off the base during the Sabetha-Riverside contest on Monday, April 8, in Sabetha.

The Sabetha Bluejay baseball team welcomed the Riverside Cyclones to town on Monday, April 8, for doubleheader action. The Bluejays swept Riverside in both games, 15-0 in the first and 8-5 in the second.

Game one

Sabetha took the quick lead in game one with two runs scored in the first inning and five runs in both the second and third inning, then three runs in the fourth inning. Sabetha’s defense held Riverside scoreless throughout the game. Sabetha would claim the first win 15-0.

Junior Braden Argabright took the mound for the Bluejays. He threw four innings, allowing zero runs on two hits. He also struck out five batters and walked three.

“Our game one against Riverside went well,” said Head Coach Aaron Frey. “We had some big innings on offense and defensively we really were never threatened. They had trouble fielding the ball and we took advantage of that.”

Game two

Sabetha started the second game off just as strong as the first. They scored two runs in the first inning, but Riverside came back in the second to take the lead 3-2. The Bluejays rallied back — scoring three runs in the third and fourth innings. The Bluejays maintained their lead for the remainder of the game, and would take the win 8-5.

Senior Mason Spellmeier threw the first four innings, allowing four runs on four hits. He also struck out one batter and walked three before Sophomore Kaleb Evans took the mound. He walked two batters before being relieved by Argabright, who threw the next two innings.

Argabright allowed zero runs on zero hits, while striking out four batters. Sophomore Cooper Bradbury pitched the final inning, allowing one run on two hits, while striking out one batter.

“Game two was a little different,” Frey said. “We struggled a little on the mound, but I was proud of the way some of our guys stepped up and came through when we had to. We constantly talk about how we are building for Regionals and that is when we want to be playing our best baseball.”

Sabetha welcomed Nemaha Central to town Monday, April 15. These results were not available at The Herald’s press time.
