Hunsaker home runs help lift Broncos over Memphis

By Sandy Anderberg

Kade Hunsaker took advantage of the gusty wind last Friday hitting two home runs and helped the Broncos to a 17-3 District win over the Cyclones at home. He finished with six runs to his credit. He was also on the mound for four innings and only gave up one run while striking out eight and allowing two hits.

Several Broncos hit big in the game and helped their team to the win. Payton Hicks connected with a double early on, and the Broncos took advantage of an error to take the lead in the first.

The third inning was huge for the Broncos as they scored 10 runs. After the Hunsaker home run, Andy Davis, Josh Cobb, and Nick Shadle doubled to drive in runs.

The Broncos finished with 13 total hits in the game and Cobb, Hunsaker, and Preston Elam had several hits each. They were able to steal 13 bases as a team with Shadle posting three stolen bases.

Earlier in the week, the Broncos defeated River Road 18-6. Clay Koetting was on the mound, earning the win and pitching for four innings. Koetting only gave up three runs, five hits, and one walk. He struck out four batters.

The Broncos were in control from early on and never looked back. They were able to score four runs in the seventh. Big hits came from Hunsaker, Hicks, Davis, Koetting, and Shadle and Cobb posted two stolen bases.

The Broncos will host Wellington on Friday, March 31, at 4:00 p.m., and the junior varsity will play Borger on Saturday, April 1.
