     The Maroon baseball team was victorious yesterday in both games of a double header on the road in Bedford.  In game 1, the Lions battled back from down 2-0 to corral the Bisons by a score of 5-2 in 6 innings.  Cohen Cochran pitched 4 solid innings to give the boys a chance to tie it up, then Brayden Pike came in to slam the door for the win.  Vince Nedimyer had 2 huge hits to lead the offense, and Josh Starr and Owen Hileman drove in runs in the win. In game 2, Braiden Touchton and Nedimyer combined on a 1 hitter and Wes Zitsch had a pair of hits and RBI’s in a 5-1 win.  Great wins boys!
