INA, Ill. - With Kaskaskia College up 11-3 in the seventh inning, it appears Rend Lake College baseball will suffer a sweep in its home opener, suspended by darkness on Thursday. The remainder of the seventh inning will be played Saturday when the Warriors head to Centralia. KC won the first game of the Thursday doubleheader, 2-0, despite Warrior soph Andrew Edwards' command from the mound and RLC outhitting the Blue Devils 9 to 4.
Edwards (Gilberstville, Ky.) threw all seven innings in the loss and is now 0-3. He struck out six, walked only one and gave up four hits with a squad of major league scouts looking on from the stands - all guns pointed at the 6-5, 250-pound, right-hander's next pitch.
"I thought I threw pretty well today," he said after the game. "But we lost, so I guess it doesn't mean much."
Rend Lake committed one error in the field while the Blue Devils had none. But the real story was hitting. The Warriors, with nine hits to KC's four, left 11 on base. Those who got hits for RLC were Frank Dreslinski, Steve Draper, Greg Guest, Jordan Fortner with three, Nolan Ray and Blake Deaton. KC had four hitters with one apiece.
RLC, now 4-7, will head to KC on Saturday. For all things athletic at The Lake, visit RLC online at www.rlc.edu/warriors.
