Salem’s high octane offense was at it again Saturday against LaBrae scoring 6 runs in the first inning and winning the game in 5 by a score of 12-2.
Despite it being the Quakers 5th game of the year scoring more than 10 runs, the offense was not the story. Sophomore pitcher Seth Seddon pitching in his first varsity baseball game was the story. Seddon went 5 innings allowing 2 runs on 3 hits and did it in extremely efficient fashion tossing 48 pitches to earn the victory. Seddon was a strike throwing machine and the defense played well behind him as he made it look easy sitting down the first 10 batters he faced in his first varsity action.
Seniors Braydon Gibson and Jake Maenz collected 3 hits each including back to back hits in the first inning as part of the first 5 Salem batters reaching base before an out was recorded. The 6 run first inning was the 6th time this year the Quakers have scored 5 or more runs in one inning.
The Quakers are now 6-2 (1-2 in the conference) and are scheduled to make up a game from earlier in the year against Alliance on Monday the 16th at Alliance at 5 o’clock.
