Knights complete sub-region sweep of Woodland
The River Ridge Knights had six hitters to combine for 11 hits, 11 RBIs, and 13 runs scored in a 16-4 defeat of the Woodland Wildcats Friday night in Woodstock.
With the victory, River Ridge completed a sweep of Woodland in both teams' first three-game sub-region series of the season.
Woodland struck first in the game, scoring four runs in the top of the first. The inning was highlighted by a three-run double by Adam Martin.
The Knights answered quickly, however, scoring seven runs of their own in the bottom half of the first.
Nine more runs by River Ridge over the next two innings put the game away.
Martin finished with three RBI for the Wildcats. Mitchell Taylor, Trent Harrison, Brandon Allen, Hunter Reaid, and Jacob Frye had the other Woodland hits.
Grayson Bagwell suffered the pitching loss in only one inning of work. Harrison pitched the final three innings for the Wildcats.
