LAKOTA EAST 11    MOELLER 8  (SCRIMMAGE)

The Moeller Freshman Baseball Team opened the 2018 season with a scrimmage verses Lakota East at the Blue Ash Sports Complex.  East’s bats were on fire to start the game.  They collected 4 hits and a walk from their first 5 batters off Moeller starter Michael Ramsey to take a 2-0 lead.  Moeller had an answer in the bottom of the first inning.  With 1 out, Michael Ramsey hit a line drive single to leftfield.  Grant Blomeke walked and Aidan Noyes singled to score Ramsey.  Zach French walked, Nijel Davis was hit by the pitch to set up a 2 rbi single from Jake Zicka to send the Crusaders up 3-2.  Ramsey shut the Thunderbirds down in the second inning.  Andrew Boudreau pitched the next 2 innings allowing 3 runs.  Moeller scored again in the second and third innings.  Walks to Evan Gatto, Ramsey and Blomeke set up an rbi fielder’s choice from Aidan Noyes.  The East pitchers ran into some trouble in the bottom of the third inning.  Walks to Nijel Davis, Alex Dicke, Michael Ramsey, Grant Blomeke, as well as Ethan Brose being hit by the pitch put the Crusaders up 6-3.  Zach French followed Boudreau to the mound and allowed 5 runs to put up East 8-6 a lead the Crusaders could not top.  Aidan Noyes followed French to the mound to pitch the last inning.  The Moeller offense was led by Aidan Noyes’ 2 hits, a double from Andrew Lang, hits by Michael Ramsey and Jake Zicka and a sac fly by Cole Brennan.
