Riverland baseball team sweeps Central Lakes

Published 10:55 pm Thursday, April 5, 2012

The Riverland baseball team pounded out 26 hits as they swept Central Lakes (1-19 overall) by scores of 10-0 in five innings and 13-3 in five innings in a doubleheader at Seltz Field Thursday.

The Blue Devils (11-6 overall) didn’t score in the first three innings of the first game, but once they got their timing down, they scored in every frame after that.

“They started a guy with a lot of curve balls in the first game and he could throw them for strikes,” RCC head coach Scott Koenigs said. “It took us awhile, but once we started sitting back, we got going.”
