Moravia's Casey Smith pitches against Murray.

BASEBALL

Murray 2, Moravia 1

MORAVIA — Runs were a premium in this one as two Murray runs proved to be enough.

Murray scored their runs in the fourth but Moravia was threatening in the seventh. A Murray error would score Wil Martin from third and put the tying run on first with no outs.

Three straight strikeouts later and Murray would escape with the win.

Hunter Arbogast took the loss after pitching 3 1/3 innings giving up two runs on three hits with two walks and seven strikeouts. Casey Smith replaced Arbogast on the mound and would also pitch 3 1/3 innings without giving up a run while striking out four.

Gage Hanes finished 2-for-3 from the plate with one RBI for the Mohawks.

Moravia (3-3) travel to play Orient-Macksburg (0-5) on Thursday at 5 p.m.

Lamoni 14, Seymour 2

LAMONI — Pitching and defense continue to hurt the Warriors as they dropped their sixth straight game while giving up double-digit runs.

Seymour scored their two runs in the top of the first inning before Lamoni would blitz them with 10 runs in the bottom of the first inning.

Lamoni then added three runs in the third and another in fourth to end the game prematurely.

Over their six game losing streak, Seymour has given up an average of 14.3 runs per game while scoring an average of 3.5 runs per game.

Seymour (2-6) will look to bounce back at home on Wednesday at 6 p.m. when they face Mormon Trail (3-4).

Seymour 18, Lamoni 3

LAMONI — The trend continues. Seymour has now alternated wins and losses for eight straight games never losing or winning more than one game in a row.

Seymour scored in five of the six innings they played in the game getting out to a 3-0 lead in the second inning before Lamoni cut that down to 3-2 after the bottom of the second.

The Warriorettes then answered with six runs in the third, three in the fifth and six in the sixth to runaway with the win.

Seymour (4-4) will try to start their first win streak of the year on Wednesday at 6 p.m. when they host Mormon Trail (0-4).
