Santa Fe baseball: Chiefs pound Concordia, 14-4
ALMA -- Concordia wasn't fazed by the top-ranked Santa Fe baseball team's pitchers Friday, but couldn't stop the home club's bats.
The Chiefs enjoyed a 16-12 advantage in hits during a 14-4, six-inning victory. While the Orioles scored only solo runs, Santa Fe put up crooked numbers in three frames.
Junior Tyler Tolias singled and scored in the first inning and senior J.R. Langkrahr smashed a solo homer in the second to give Concordia a 2-0 lead.
The first of junior Nathan Wesley's three RBI doubles plated the Chiefs' first run in the second, but they didn't take the lead until scoring five times in the next stanza -- two on senior Jake Hollingsworth's single.
Santa Fe broke the game open with a six-run fifth, Hollingsworth and senior Hunter Rolf drilling two-run doubles and junior Ross Tieman adding an RBI single for an 11-3 lead.
Senior Max Hollingsworth singled in a run and Tieman's one-out single ended the game on the "10-run rule" by driving in two runs.
Sophomore Collin Werths and freshman Hayden Brown also had two hits each for Concordia (4-2).
Wesley went four for four with three RBIs and Jake Hollingsworth was three for three and knocked in four runs for Santa Fe (10-0) -- which plays today at Wellington-Napoleon.
