The Arma baseball field was alive Monday with the sound of aluminum.
Unfortunately for the host Northeast Vikings, it was the visiting Frontenac Raiders that were making the music.
The Raiders hit six homeruns en route to a dominating sweep of the Vikings. Frontenac won game one, 18-0, and followed that up with a 17-6 drubbing in the nightcap.
“We’ve been swinging a lot in practice and it’s obviously paying off,” said Frontenac coach Bill Sullivan.
Paying off, indeed. Several FHS batters recorded multiple hits in both games. Buster Reddick, game one’s winning pitcher, went 3-for-3 with a homerun in game one. Nick Standlee went 4-for-4 with a double in game one, before blasting three homers in game two. Caleb Nutt hit 2-for-4 with a double and a homerun in the early contest.
The Raiders did not score in the first inning of game one, but scored five, three and 10 runs in the subsequent three innings to end the game after four innings.
Northeast (2-12, 0-8 CNC) got its offense going in game two, but it was not nearly enough to keep up with the juggernaut Frontenac was on Monday. The Raiders led 11-5 after three innings, and outscored Northeast 6-1 in the next two.
Nutt went 4-for-4 with a double and his second homerun of the day. Standlee, after knocking his first three hits beyond the fence, finished 3-for-5. Keaton Brown finished 2-for-3.
“We’ve been hitting the ball fairly decent,” Sullivan said. “Our approach to the plate has been a lot better. We’re going up there knowing what we’re looking for. I thought the Northeast pitchers hit their spots, but we did a good job of focusing and going opposite field with them.”
The Raiders (6-7, 4-6 CNC) host Southeast on Thursday.
