HOLSTEIN - The Ridge View boys, trying to recover from being no-hit by Alta-Aurelia's Jaden Holden in the first game of their own Raptor Tourney Saturday, also started off slowly in their second game against Cherokee, giving up two runs to the Braves in the top of the first.
The Raptors bounced back big in the fourth inning, though, plating seven runners to take a 7-2 lead. The Braves came back in the top of the fifth, scoring three more runs to make it 7-5, and that was the final score.
Josh Mohr's 3-run homer was the highlight of the Raptors' big 4th inning, and Alonzo Ruble also poked a homer, a solo shot, for the Braves. Curtis Ege drove in two runs for the Braves and Nate Seliger doubled in one run.
Kyle Wessling got the win on the hill for Ridge View, giving up four earned runs in 4 1/3 innings, while striking out six. Kris Alesch picked up the save, going 2/3 of an inning and registering one strikeout.
Ridge View is now 9 -7 on the season and 6-3 in Western Valley Conference games.
