The Glenwood City baseball team played two games recently. They played last Friday, May 10 in Elmwood and then were finally able to host their first game of the season on Monday, May 13 against Pepin/Alma.
At home vs Pepin/Alma
It was a tied ball game by the fourth inning with the score at 2-2 after the Eagles put two runs on the board in the second inning and the Toppers scored two in the fourth.
However, the bats would fizzle out for the Hilltoppers after the Eagles put a new pitcher on the mound. The Eagles then took the lead and the win after two additional runs in the fifth and a final one in the sixth.
Richard Croes and Kyle Peterson would cross home plate for the Hilltoppers with the help of an RBI from Brennan Kessler and hits by Jake Carlson and Matt Tone.
Road loss in Elmwood
It was a different story in Elmwood last Friday as the game ended in a no-hitter for the Toppers with the Raiders scoring seven runs.
The Toppers were just not able to get in-sync with the Raider’s pitcher, Logan Wolf, as he had 14 strikeouts and allowed for just one walk.
The Raiders put up four runs in the first inning, two in the second and two in the fifth for the final of 7-0.
On the schedule next for the Toppers will be a road game in Plum City on Thursday, May 16, then they will be back at home Friday, May 17 against Elmwood and finally they will finish their currently suspended game against Spring Valley at home on Monday, May 20.
