Baseball sweeps Inman

News editor

Marion baseball brought out the brooms again Friday and swept a doubleheader in Inman, winning 10-2 and 7-1.

Marion led 5-0 after three innings in the first game before allowing a run. The Warriors extended the lead to 8-1 in the bottom of the fourth inning. They added another two runs in the fifth inning to lead 10-1, but the game went the full seven innings with Marion winning 10-2.

Starting pitcher Taylor Heidebrecht got out of bases-loaded jams in the third and fifth innings without allowing a run either inning. Grif Case struck out four batters in two innings of relief.

Heidebrecht led the team in batting, getting two doubles on a perfect three-for-three game. He also had three walks. Bret Voth was three-for-four in the game.

Voth pitched a complete game in the second game of the doubleheader, allowing only one run after the game was already all but over. Voth was supported by excellent defense, with Luke Steele catching two runners stealing and the infield turning two double plays.

Marion led 1-0 after the first inning and added three more runs on a double by Steele in the third inning. The Warriors added three more runs in the sixth inning.

Voth allowed his first earned run of the season in the top of the seventh, but he closed the game with a strikeout, his sixth of the game.


Marion swept Bennington Tuesday on the road, winning 16-0 and 17-0, both games ending in three innings.

The Warriors are now 15-1. They play makeup games starting at 3 p.m. Thursday at Ell-Saline in Brookville and close the regular season at home Tuesday against Halstead.

Regional baseball will be May 19 and 20 at home.
