On a gloomy evening at Tinora High School, the Rams bats came out blazing hot against the visiting Edon Bombers.
Edon made the trip over to THS with a 2-1 record. The Rams, 2-0, last played nine days ago in win vs Hilltop. Tinora has had six games cancelled this season, 4 last week.
Things however didn’t start out well for the Rams and senior starter Cole Commisso. Bomber senior Gannon Ripke sent a one out pitch deep over the right field fence for a three run homerun, giving Edon a 4-0 lead before the Rams even came to bat.
Tinora, having seen nothing but the inside of a gym last week, came out ready to hit real pitching. The Rams sent 11 hitters to the plate, scoring six runs off starter Edon Konner Prince. Rams starter Cole Commisso helped himself with an RBI single, scoring leadoff hitter Nolan Schafer, cutting the deficit to 4-1.
It was off and running for the Rams offense.
After all the damage was done, the Rams led 6-4 after the first inning.
Tinora starter Cole Commissso would right the ship over the next two innings, not allowing a run or a hit.
The Tinora bats really burst in the bottom of the second. Tinoira sent 14 batters to the place, scoring 10 runs to grab a 16-4 lead after the second.
In the 10 run inning, Commisso again helped himself with a walk, followed by a stolen base, then scored on a Bryce Bailey fielders choice. Commisso would bat again in the innings, this time around, smashing a 2 RBI double. Fellow Rams senior Casen Wolfrum would also reach base two times and score two runs in the second inning.
Edon would add a run in the fourth off Rams reliever Tristan Birks, Birks would work the last two innings for Tinora.
