OMAHA -- The Hays Eagles Legion baseball team split two games on the first day of pool play at the Battle of Omaha Thursday at Fricke Field in Omaha, losing to Papillion (Neb.), 7-3, in Game 1, and beating Montevideo (Minn.), 12-5, in Game 2.

Papillion, the pool host, led 2-0 after two innings and extended its lead to 7-0 after five innings. Hays finally got on the board after a fielder's choice hit by Connor Rule scored Kaden Rohr in the top of the sixth inning. Rule batted in two more runs with a single in the seventh and final inning, but the Eagle rally would fall well short.

Brady Bieker (1-1) took the loss on the mound for Hays, going 5.0 innings and giving up 10 hits with seven runs (five earned). Rule finished 1 for 3 at the plate with three runs batted in. Rohr was 2 for 3 with two runs.

In Game 2 against Montevideo, Hays got on the board in the top of the first with a RBI double from Rule to score Cole Schumacher from third. Montevideo equaled that run with its own in the bottom of the second inning to make it 1-1 entering the third.

The Eagles' offense came alive in the third inning with six hits and five runs being scored, including a two-RBI double from Kade Parker. Hays left three runners on base.

Leading 6-1 after three innings, Hays tacked on two runs in the fourth and three more in the fifth to lead 11-1 heading to the bottom half of the inning. The two innings were highlighted by a three-RBI home run by Zach Legleiter in the fifth.

Montevideo got three runs back in the bottom of the fifth and the teams each added a single run in the sixth and final inning to close out the game.

Layne Downing (3-0) earned the win for Hays in Game 2, going 4.1 innings while allowing five hits, four runs (one earned) and striking out six batters with five walks. Trenton Henningsen did the rest, finishing out the final 1.2 innings (one hit, one unearned run, one strikeout, four walks).

Legleiter led the Eagles with four RBI, going 3 for 4 at the plate with three runs. Parker had three RBI, going 2 for 4 with one run.

Hays (10-4) was set to play a single game today against La Cuerva (N.M.) at 11:30 a.m. The final two games of pool play for the Eagles will take place Saturday. The 10 pool winners and six wild card teams will advance to tournament play.
