After getting rained out Thursday, the Rangers traveled to Onsted for a Saturday tournament. The Rangers opened with Sand Creek Saturday morning. Dakota Shay started on the mound and kept the Aggies off balance early. Some good pitching and some solid defensive plays saw the Rangers down 1-0 heading into the 4th inning. The Aggie bats woke up in the 4th and 5th innings and a few costly errors ended the game with a 16-0 defeat.
Game 2 found the Rangers facing off against Big 8 opponent-the Spartans off Springport. A single by Corbin Hoover and some aggressive base running got the Rangers off to an early 1-0 lead. David Dau and Cole Boyd worked on the mound while striking out 3 batters. The Rangers also had hits from Javin Green, Tyler Whinnie, Cole Boyd, Zach Thatcher and Dakota Shay. Inconsistent defense and a good hitting Springport team defeated the Rangers 15-1.
The Rangers will face Homer on Tuesday afternoon in Homer.
