Kemp, Bishop power Raiders past Bombers

COLLINS - A flawless performance in all areas of play gave Collins-Maxwell-Baxter a decisive 11-0 victory over Ballard in five innings June 23 during a non-conference baseball outing at Collins.

CMB pounded out 13 hits and limited Ballard to just three. The Raiders also went error-free and they capitalized on two Bomber miscues, improving to 9-8 on the season.

The Raiders went up 1-0 after two innings. They broke the game open with a six-run third, then added four more runs in the fourth.

Ballard was unable to answer in the top of the fifth to end the game early due to the 10-run rule. The loss put the Bombers at 14-5 on the season.

Nate Bishop threw an outstanding game on the mound to get the victory for CMB. Bishop fired a three-hitter with three strikeouts and he worked around five walks in five innings to get the shutout.

On offense, Brady Kemp paced CMB’s 13-hit attack by going a perfect 3-for-3 with a double, three runs and two RBI. Aric Broderick was 2-for-2 with one run and three RBI, Brady Stover finished 2-for-3 with two runs and an RBI, Brady Ross was 2-for-3 with two runs and Tucker Maxwell finished 2-for-3 with a run and RBI apiece for the Raiders.

Brad Ritter added a single, walk and run; Creighton Caple scored once and drove home a run and Bishop was 1-for-3 with an RBI for CMB.

Kobe Schulze and Austin Edwards both recorded a double and a walk and Lane Shaeffer singled and walked for Ballard. Marcus Chieves and Gannon Manfull tacked on one walk apiece for the Bombers at the plate.

Manfull was the losing pitcher. He allowed six runs - five earned on seven hits in one inning of work.

Colin Anderson surrendered one unearned run on one hit with two strikeouts in two innings. Taylor Roberts gave up four runs - three earned - on five hits with one walk in one inning for the Bombers.
