Baseball

Shenandoah 17, Cowan 6

The Raiders traveled a short distance northeast to face the host Blackhawks Wednesday evening in a Mid-Eastern Conference game and defeated them by 11 runs in a contest that ended after five innings on the 10-run rule.

The victory improved the varsity record to 4-2 and 2-0 in MEC play.

Shenandoah bats pounded out 11 hits and had home runs in each of the first three innings to build a 10-0 advantage before Cowan rallied for five runs in the bottom half of the third. The Raiders added seven more runs over the next two innings to put the game away early.

Gavin Patrick led the Shenandoah offense with a 4-for-4 effort from the plate that included a double, a home run and five RBI. Jake Webster had two hits, one of which was a two-run double. Ty Alexander had a three-run homer in the first inning and Blake Surface added a two-run dinger in the third.

The Raiders’ Jackson Campbell got the win on the mound in relief of Hadden Myers. Campbell went 2.2 innings in giving up a single run while striking out five Blackhawk batters.

Shenandoah played at Hagerstown Thursday evening, and a story about that game will be in Sunday’s edition of The Courier-Times.
