TMP baseball splits with Larned

By The Hays Daily News

LARNED -- The Thomas More Prep-Marian baseball team's winning streak came to an end Tuesday.

The Monarchs split their doubleheader at Larned, losing 7-6 in Game 1 and winning 6-2 in Game 2.

The loss ended a six-game winning streak. TMP (11-5) now has won 11 of its past 13 games.

It was a back-and-forth game in the opener. TMP grabbed an early lead with a three-run first inning, but Larned answered with a four-run third inning. The lead changed two more times after that with Larned grabbing the final lead with a two-run fifth inning.

TMP sophomore pitcher Kameron Schmidt (3-1) suffered the loss. He lasted five innings and allowed seven runs, five earned, on 10 hits and three walks while striking out five.

The Monarchs struggled at the plate, hitting 6 of 25. Sophomore Ryan Schippers had the lone multi-hit game for his squad, going 2 of 4 with an RBI and run scored.

In Game 2, TMP senior Shane Zimmerman (3-3) pitched a jewel of a game. He lasted all seven innings, allowing two runs, neither earned, off two hits and three walks while striking out 12.
