Marion baseball shellacked in league opener

Staff writer

After a promising pair of victories over Chase County, Marion baseball came back to earth Tuesday, suffering a doubleheader sweep at the hands of Sedgwick.

“We didn’t pitch well, we didn’t hit well, we didn’t defend well, we didn’t coach well,” head coach Roger Schroeder said. “It was disappointing.”

The Warriors lost 8-1 and then 19-2 to bring their season record to 2-2 and their Heart of America league record to 0-2.

Marion was without starting sophomore catcher Nathan Baldwin, who was ill. Schroeder said that “threw things off” for his team. In his place, senior Nathan Cyr started the first game at catcher and freshman Corbin Wheeler started the second.

Centre senior Dakota Stimpson also was unavailable for the Warriors, Schroeder said.

The team will get a chance to rebound Friday against Bennington at home in its second league doubleheader. The first game begins at 4:30 p.m.
