ROCKSPRINGS, Ohio — The Marauders hot start continues.
Just two days after winning their season opener over Eastern the Meigs baseball team defeated visiting Warren 5-2 Monday night in a non-conference tilt.
The Marauders (2-0) scored twice in the opening frame as Ty Phelps drove in Chase Whitlatch and Cody Bartrum. Warren countered in the top of the third inning but the Maroon and Gold held their guest to just one run in the inning.
The MHS offense added some insurance in the bottom of the sixth, as Luke Musser drove in Bartrum and Taylor Rowe, and then scored on a Kaileb Sheets single. Warren manufactured a run in the top of the seventh but failed to complete the comeback and Meigs took the 5-2 triumph.
Ty Phelps earned the victory on the mound as he gave up just one run on one hit and seven walks in 3.1 innings of work, while striking out eight.
Phelps, Whitlatch, Rowe, Bartrum, Sheets, Musser and Damon Jones each marked one hit in the game, while Phelps and Musser each had two RBIs. Sheets added on run batted in for Meigs. Bartrum led the Maroon and Gold with two runs scored, followed by Whitlatch, Rowe and Musser with one each.
These teams will meet again on April 23, when the Marauders travel to Vincent.
