  • Payton Rawlins set the tone for the Seneca Indians on Wednesday as they tamed the Lamar Tigers 15-5 in five innings in a Big 8 Conference game at the Seneca Sports Complex.
    It was not a good night for Lamar pitchers to face Seneca’s heavy-hitters. The Indians pounded out 11 hits, with none bigger than Rawlins’ grand slam in the first inning to spark a five-run burst.
    The Indians (13-3, 4-0 Big 8) would score two more in the second before adding five in the third behind a three-run double by Colton Webber, and three in the fifth.
    Meanwhile, Rawlins was dealing on the mound as the righthander struck out nine and walked two in his complete game bid. He held the Tigers scoreless through the first four frames before allowing five runs (two earned) in the fifth.
    Rawlins closed the game with two hits, five RBIs and two runs scored. Webber had a perfect day at the plate with three hits, three runs, two doubles and four RBIs. Cade Cornett had two hits, including a double, scored once and had two RBIs. Dalan Merriman had a hit and scored twice. Braden Larson chipped in an RBI double. Marty Mailes had a hit, scored once and two RBIs while Kyler Ng walked and scored twice.
    After trailing 12-1 in the third inning, the Indians came all the way back and bested the Tigers 16-14 in five innings in the B game. The Indians closed the game with six runs in the third and nine more in the fourth inning.
    The Indians stay at home where they’ll entertain Carl Junction in a Big 8 game today at 5 p.m.
