Hoagland, Maroons blank Marshall, 3-0
Sports Editor

Everything fell right for Robinson High School's baseball team Monday.

The Maroons got strong pitching, clean fielding and timely hitting and it all added up to a 3-0 win over Marshall in Little Illini Conference play.

It was a pitcher's duel throughout, with the two teams combining for just nine hits - all of which were singles.

Fortunately, Robinson got seven of those hits and was able to string together a few in the fifth inning. All three RHS runs came in that frame, with the rally starting with Michael Elliott's leadoff single. Logan Miller followed with a base hit, then after both runners advanced on a double-steal, Wade Lassen lofted a deep fly ball to left that the left fielder misplayed, allowing Elliott to score for a 1-0 lead. Dalton Albright followed with a single to plate Miller, then Logan Johnson delivered a run-scoring single to bring in Lassen for a 3-0 RHS lead.

That was more than enough for Landen Hoagland, who tossed a complete-game, two-hitter to earn the win. He allowed just two singles in the game - one in the second and one in the sixth - while also walking two and striking out eight in seven innings.

"It had been a while since Hoagland and thrown in a game and he came out and pitched today," RHS head coach Scott Albright said. "He only walked two and we played a clean field behind him."

Elliott led RHS at the plate with two singles and a run scored, while Albright and Johnson posted a base hit and a run batted in apiece. Miller added a single and a run scored, Hoagland and Cole Blankenbeker each had a hit and Lassen drove in a run and scored a run.
