Eagles pick up two wins, but suffer loss

The Hays Senior Legion baseball team got off to a hot start Friday at Manhattan's Tournament of Champions, but suffered a big loss in its second win of the day.

After driving in the go-ahead run, Chandler Rule broke his leg sliding into third base in the sixth inning against the Kansas Crush, according to Eagles coach Brad Kelly. Rule will miss the remainder of the season.

"He actually slipped going into third base, and his left foot went into third and he got caught and slid through the bag," Kelly said.

Kelly said Rule broke his leg and tore some ligaments in his ankle.

Rule, who has played at first base and designated hitter this season, got off to a slow start, going hitless in the first three games, but was red hot in the two games Friday, hitting 4 of 8 with three RBIs.

"It hurts," Kelly said. "I feel really bad for him, especially going into his senior year. I know he had high expectations with not just baseball but football and wrestling. Hopefully, he can get back as quick as he can and can excel when he does get back."

For the Eagles (5-0), it was an unfortunate end of the night for a good tournament run so far.

Hays Legion defeated St. Joseph (Mo.) 18-3 in the early game and Kansas Crush 9-6 in the late game at Tointon Stadium.

Against St. Joseph, the Eagles were up 7-3 after six innings before scoring 11 in the seventh.

Third baseman Jarrett Sanders went 4 for 4 and had three RBIs and three runs scored.

Second baseman Riley Kaus and first baseman Trevor Henningsen each finished 4-of-5 hitting with four RBIs and one run, and outfielder Casey Sedbrook went 4 of 6 at the plate and had two RBIs and three runs.

Against the Crush, the Eagles trailed 6-4 heading into the bottom of the sixth inning, and they responded by scoring five runs.

"I thought we battled," Kelly said. "It was one of those games where we were trailing late. So far, our guys have found ways to get hits when we needed to."

Rule actually drove in the go-ahead runs with a 2-RBI single to put the Eagles up 8-6, and as he advanced to third following an error, that's when he got injured.

"They were a good team," Kelly said. "They had some really good players on that team. It was a good atmosphere until Chandler got hurt there in the bottom of the sixth."

The Eagles were set to play again Saturday night and 10:30 a.m. The Eagles will play another game if they win today at 10:30.
