Ethan Seyler allowed six hits and no runs while striking out three in the Nebraska City Post 8 Seniors victory over Nehawka 12-0 on Thursday, June 14, at Nehawka.
Dylan Knoell got things going for NC after a lead off double to left field. Garrett Bassinger drove in Knoell on a line-drive double and Nebraska City took a quick 1-0 lead. Bassinger scored later in the inning after a sacrifice RBI from Alex Breazile.
In the second inning, Tyler Levy smacked a two out single. After a stolen base by Levy, Clay Stovall hit a hard double down third base line and NC led 3-0.
Knoell singled in the top half of the third inning to score Zac Albrecht and Jacob Shannon to increase the score to 6-0.
Trent Fahey and Garrett Bassinger came around to score after a double down right field line by Jace Becker.
During the top half of the fifth, Stovall knocked in Tyler Levy on a single and after a double by Fahey, Becker got his third hit on the night by hitting an RBI triple as NC won 12-0.
After a couple of strange losses including a heartbreak loss to Wahoo, Head Coach James Widoe said he wanted the kids to take out their aggression on Nehawka. “It’s a good ending to the week,” Widoe said. “I really wanted to take out our frustrations on Nehawka tonight and I thought the kids barrelled up the ball and did a good job.”
Seyler got the win on the mound for NC by throwing strikes and not allowing a single walk, and with some of the injuries that NC have acquired, Seyler has played a solid role in the pitching rotation. “Ethan has been really good for us,” Widoe said. “With some of the injuries we have had, he has slid into that three spot in the rotation.”
Nebraska City pounded out 12 hits on the night.
Jace Becker was 3-for-4 with a single, double, triple, and three RBI.
