  • The Frontenac Raiders maintained their roll on the baseball and softball diamonds Monday night with respective sweeps of the Galena Bulldogs in Crawford-Neosho-Cherokee League action.
    Frontenac won the softball games 8-2 and 17-4 and the baseball games 10-7 and 13-0.
    In the first softball game, Frontenac senior pitcher Lindsey Gorham struck out nine, gave up
    five hits in seven innings and hit a two-run home run with her only hit of the opener.
    Libby Warrick hit a three-run double as both Gorham and Warrick made great use of their lone hits. Haley Wilson picked up a RBI triple (again, her only hit of the game) and Rachel
    Amershek scored two runs during a 3-for-4 night.
    In the nightcap, Gorham, Amershek and Samantha Bonner provided much offensive production.
    Bonner went 3-4 with a double, a home run, four RBI and a stolen base.
    Amershek hit 3-3 (6-7 on the night) with four runs scored, two doubles and four RBI.
    Gorham went 2-3 with four runs scored, a double and three RBI.
    Ashton Alex scored three runs and Jennifer Long and Nayna Fields each scored two. Long stole a pair of bases and Fields and Alex each collected RBI.
    Frontenac softball (11-1) plays a makeup doubleheader Wednesday against Baxter Springs.
    The Raider baseball team unveiled a new pitching weapon in the nightcap of its doubleheader Monday night.
    Jace Burdette, a sophomore, struck out nine and walked five in five innings. Burdette combined with Tanner Edwards, who pitched the first two innings without allowing a hit, on a two-hit shutout.
    Matt Standlee, who traditionally pitches the back end of a doubleheader, contributed five RBI on two hits, highlighted by a home run. Fellow senior Blake Barto picked up four RBI. Brett Macary led the hit parade with three. Macary and Blake Vail each scored three runs.
    What a night it turned out to be on the RBI front for Standlee, since he picked up five RBI as well in the opener on a pair of hits, highlighted by a home run. Maybe Standlee should play every game in Galena, since he increased his seasonal RBI total to 20 on a single night, doubling his previous total.
    Bryce Burdette and Bryan Wade each drove in a pair for the Raiders, who ran their undefeated record to 14-0.
    Vail earned the win and Jace Burdette the save. Burdette pulled off the nifty feat of a win and a save on the same night.
    The St. Mary’s Colgan baseball team dropped its second consecutive with a 9-7 loss to Seneca (Mo.) on Monday.
    Colgan fell behind 9-2 early and fell short despite one in the sixth and four in the seventh.
    Page 2 of 2 - The Panthers managed only five hits against Seneca pitchers Dalan Merriman and Payton Rawlings.
    Rawlings led the Seneca offense with four RBI.
    Colgan picked up single RBI by Nate Grimaldi, Christian Cedeno, Austin Kratz, V.J. Piccini, Tully Yoakam and Nate Brown.
    The Panthers dropped to 8-5 and host Southeast on Thursday.
    Baxter Springs swept Pittsburg in a Monday doubleheader, 10-0 in six innings and 6-4.
