Moundridge won the first game 8-5, while Remington won the nightcap 14-4. The second game was called after six innings on the 10-run rule.
“We pitched a lot better in game one than we have all year in my opinion,” Moundridge coach Lynn Eichelberger said. “We limited the walks made Remington put the ball in play. We still had five errors but that only cost us a few runs.Sophomore Collin Kohl was pitching well before I pulled him out due to pitch count restrictions. Freshman Wyatt Falco came in and pitched well to get us back in the dugout. He also came out due to pitching restrictions. Freshman Corbin Unruh got us the final out by throwing strikes to get the save with a couple of runners on base. The top of the lineup of Noah Eichelberger, Collin Kohl and Chris Leddy hit the ball well going five for ten in the game. Josh Knight and Unruh also both had a couple of hits.”
Tied 4-4 in the first game, Moundridge scored four runs in the fifth and four runs in the sixth to take the lead. Remington added a run in the fifth.
Wyatt Falcon posted the win in relief of Collin Kohl. Corbin Unruh pitched the final out for the save. Kohn struck out four, while Falco struck out five.

Javier Martinez went two for three for Remngton with an RBI. T.J. Wedel went two for four.
In the second game, Remington scored in every inning. Moundridge scored two runs each in the first two innings to lead 4-2.
Thiessen pitched three innings of relief for the win, striking out five and walking two. Starter Wes Sommers went three innings, allowing two walks and three strikeouts.

Ryan Hamilton, Sommers and Martinez each had two hits and drove in two runs for Remington. Thiessen went two for three with an RBI.
Collin Kohl went two for three for Moundridge. Kohl and Peyton Fast each drove in two runs.
“The nightcap kind of got away from us with seven errors and some mental mistakes,” Lynn Eichelberger said. “I thought Chris Leddy pitched well before being pulled due to pitch count rules. Collin Kohl and Peyton Fast had nice games at the plate. We need to get better in all areas in order to get where we want to be at the end of the year. Looks like the weather the next few days is going to allow us to get some good practice time in.”
Remington is 3-3 and hosts Little River at 4 p.m. Friday.
Moundridge is 1-5 and hosts Inman at 4 p.m. Friday.
