Coffeyville plated 34 runs en route to another two victories over Highland Sunday, winning the first game 25-1 and then winning the nightcap 9-3.
The first game was never in any doubt. From the get-go, it was clear that Coffeyville was to be the better team both at the plate and out in the field. The Ravens batted around in every one of their four tries. They'd score 5 runs in the 1st, 9 in the 2nd, 7 in the 3rd, and finally 4 more in the 4th. Production came from all parts of the lineup, including several pinch hitters. Jackson Meyer and Carlos Negron made the most of their opportunities, with both sending monster grand slams over the left-field fence. The game was scheduled for 7 innings but was called after 5 at a final score of 25-1.
The second game, at first, seemed to be a replay of the first. Coffeyville jumped out quickly, scoring 9 runs in the first three innings. However, the offense completely stalled out from there. The Ravens recorded just 1 hit after the third inning, but with a solid outing from starting pitcher Marcos Lopez, they wouldn't necessarily need anymore. The Scotties would produce 2 runs in the 6th, and plated 1 more in the 8th, but Taylor Mahoney would close things out one more time over the weekend, giving the Ravens the complete four-game sweep over Highland.
The Ravens are now 13-7 on the year and are winners of five straight. Tough games lie ahead the rest of this week, starting with the Butler Grizzlies on Tuesday. That 9-inning contest can be heard on Sunshine 98.9, KQQF, starting at 12:45 PM.
