Charger Baseball Falls to Audubon; WCV Here Tonight

The host Audubon Wheelers scored three runs in each of the first and third innings last night, and it proved to be all they needed to top the Chargers, 9-3, in the opening baseball game of the season.

The first three spot came with two outs in the bottom of the first inning. After starting Charger pitcher Quenton Spack retired the first two batters, a hit and two walks loaded the bases for Wheeler Ethan Klooke who knocked in all three base runners with a double. The Wheelers made it 6-0 after three innings, putting the game out of reach.

The Chargers managed to close the gap to 6-3 after the fifth inning, as they scored two in the fourth and one in the fifth inning. After Logan Brincks was hit by a pitch and both Nathan Schiller and Will Byars were both drew walks, Brincks scored on a wild pitch and Schiller scored on a sacrifice fly by Bryce Litter in the fourth to close the gap to 6-2. In the top of the fifth pinch runner Reid Rumelhart scored on a sacrifice fly by Spack. That made the score 6-3 and it was as close as the Chargers could get.

Audubon added two in their half of the fifth and a single run in the sixth to make the final 9-3.

The Chargers managed only four hits on the night, with Wardyn, Littler, Kingery, and pinch hitter Michael Ure each collecting one hit. Spack, Brincks, Byars, and Littler shared the pitching duties, combining to give up five hits, while walking four and striking out eight.

With little time to lick their wounds, ACGC jumps into conference play tonight when West Central Valley comes to town. A JV game will begin at 5 PM, with the varsity to play at 6:30. WCV is 1-0 on the season, having defeated Glidden-Ralston last night, 6-3.
