Seyler retires 14 of 17 batters, Nebraska City rolls to victory

Nebraska City head coach James Widoe said Ethan Seyler’s performance last Saturday in a 7-4 win at Teckmeyer Financial in Lincoln was his best outing of the season.

Widoe’s opinion may have changed after Thursday. Seyler (1-1) tossed five innings, 48 pitches, three strikeouts and no walks for the Post 8 Seniors in a 12-0 win over Elmwood-Murdock Nehawka in Nehawka, NE.

Seyler retired 14 of 17 batters faced in a game shortened by mercy rule.

Offensively, Nebraska City cruised, scoring in all five innings. The Post 8 seniors scored a dozen runs on a dozen hits, including five doubles and two triples.

Dylan Knoell, who batted leadoff, led the charge going 3-for-3 with a double, two runs scored, two stolen bases and two walks. In total, seven of nine batters for Nebraska City got a hit and scored. The Post 8 Seniors drew six walks at the plate.

Dylan Willey (1-1) was the losing pitcher for Elmwood-Murdock-Nehawka. He tossed the first three innings, surrendering seven hits, six runs (all earned), one strikeout and four walks.

Nebraska City improves to 6-8 and hosts Louisville/Weeping Water tonight (Friday) at Clemmy Holmes Field.
