Indians skunk STC twice
by Brandon Leonard Correspondent · June 29th, 2017

After going 2-2 to end the week last week, the Marion baseball team shut out South Tama County twice on Monday night to improve its record to 20-6 overall on the season. The wins come after suffering losses to West Delaware and Cedar Rapids Prairie and picking up wins over West Delaware and Burlington.

Brady Donohue tossed a gem in the 5-0 win against South Tama County in Game One last week, striking out nine Trojans and only allowing one hit. Sophomore star Rick Atkins followed up Donohue's performance with a great outing of his own, fanning eight batters and allowing just one hit in the 7-0 win.

In Marion's 6-2 win over West Delaware last Thursday, Baylor Fish had a pair of doubles and drove in two runs to lead the Indians offensively, while Parker Ridge struck out nine to get the win on the mound. Marion lost 6-5 in Game Two as Trevor Paulsen suffered the defeat on the mound. Nick Cole drove in two runs but his efforts weren't enough to help the Indians pull off the sweep.

Prairie roughed up Marion at times in the 7-1 loss on Saturday. Mitch Wiese allowed six runs in two innings of work while Cole allowed just one run in five innings at the mound.

Cole's stretch of hot play continued against Burlington in the Indians' 6-5 triumph. The sophomore went two-for-four batting with a pair of RBIs while Donohue got the win on the mound.

Marion is scheduled for double-headers against Dyersville, Beckman and Solon this week as well as a Tuesday night contest against North Cedar at home.
