Two one-sided games ended in opposite results for Hutsonville-Palestine's baseball and softball teams Monday.
Hutsonville-Palestine scored early and often on their way to an 11-1 over visiting Casey-Westfield in baseball action, while the Lady Tigers failed to score in an 8-0 loss in Little Illini Conference action.
At Hutsonville, the Tigers opened the scoring with three runs in the first, then broke the game open with a five-run second inning. Hutsonville-Palestine added two runs in the third for a 10-0 advantage, before Casey-Westfield got on the board with a run in the fourth. The Tigers added a run in the bottom of the fifth to win the game by the 10-run rule.
Brandon Ramsey led the Tigers at the plate with a home run, a double, a single, three runs batted in and two runs scored, while B.J. Ramsey doubled, singled twice, knocked in a run and scored two runs. Logan Wesner posted three hits and four runs batted in, Kyle Myers singled twice and scored three runs, Matt Schmidlin added two singles, two runs batted in and two runs scored, Cade Fulling had a base hit and a run batted in, Dallas Cooke singled and scored a run and Brandon Cofer scored a run.
Cooke earned the win on the mound, allowing one run on eight hits in five innings, while walking one and striking out four.
Meanwhile, the softball game had to be moved to Palestine due to almost half the field at Hutsonville being under water.
The change of venue didn't spark the offense for the Lady Tigers, as they managed just two hits in the game.
Casey-Westfield scored once in the first to open the scoring, then added two runs in the third, four in the fourth and one in the seventh to pull away for the win.
Emily Nehls and Calee Fulling had a base hit apiece for the Lady Tigers.
Myranda Napier took the loss on the mound, allowing eight runs on 10 hits, while walking four and striking out two in seven innings.
"Defensively, they played fantastic," HHS-PHS head coach Nancy Guyer said. "Our outfielders were everywhere. Casey just hit the ball well. We just need to get our offense going."
