Sidney Wins Two Of Three Baseball Games

The Sidney Eagles baseball team defeated the Williston JV-1 team with a score of 13-1 on April 16, in Williston.

The Eagles scored two in the second inning after a Williston error scored one run and Kayson Radke grounded out, scoring one run. They added two more runs in the third after Gradin Sukut and Kason Radke got RBIs due to errors.

There were eight hits and five runs in the sixth inning. Ty Schepens hit his second home run of the season, scoring two runs, Treyce Bower singled, scoring another run, and Cooper McNally singled to score two runs.

Sukut earned the win on the mound for Sidney. He gave up three hits in one run (zero earned) over four innings, striking out six and walking two. McNally was the relief pitcher. He gave up zero hits, struck out one and walked none in two innings.

The Eagles had 12 hits in the game. McNally, Hansen, Bower, and Heck each had two hits. McNally led the team with four runs batted in. Hansen stole two bases. The Eagles didn't commit a single error in the field.

The Sidney Eagles had one conference victory and one conference loss when they traveled to Livingston on Saturday.

First, the Eagles beat the Park Rangers 10-6. The Eagles scored two in the third inning after Ty Schepens singled and Cooper McNally grounded it out.

The Park Rangers tied the game in the sixth inning, and the Eagles took back the lead in the seventh.  Treyce Bower singled to bring the score to 6-5.

The Rangers tied the game in the bottom of the seventh, but the Eagles brought the score back to their favor, 10-6, in the ninth inning. Runs were scored after Hansen singled, Sukut and Schepens walked, and Park committed an error.

Cayden Heck earned the win for Sidney while pitching. He gave up four hits and one run over three innings, striking out two and walking one. Hansen pitched the first six innings of the game. He gave up seven hits and five runs (zero earned), striking out six and walking five.

Hansen had a great game at bat with three hits. He singled in the fourth inning, tripled in the eighth, and singled in the ninth. Bower also collected three hits. Radke had two hits.  Sukut, Radke, Johnson, and Heck each had two walks. Sukut stole two bases.

The next game against the Lone Peak Big Horns didn't come out in the Eagles favor. The Eagles lost 2-5.

The game was tied 1-1 in the first inning after Schepens singled. Sukut, Radke, and Schepens each had one head for Sidney. Sukut had a hit that was a few feet short of the 350-foot home run on the Livingston field. It would've been a home run at Sidney's Moose Park, as our fences at right field are at 305 feet.

Radke and Schepens drove in one run each for the Eagles. Sukut earned three walks. Hansen and Sukut stole multiple bases during the game.

This weekend, the Eagles have their final home games for the season. On Friday the Eagles take on Belgrade and Saturday (senior night) they play the Watford City Wolves.
