ROCKFORD — The Parkway Panthers played a ball game under the lights at Don Black Field at Parkway High School on Wednesday night as the Panthers played host to the St. Henry Redskins in ACME baseball. The Redskins used a big three run first inning to pick up the victory 5-2 over Parkway.

St. Henry jumped on Parkway pitcher Seth Stuckey early in the contest as the first four batters reached base. The third batter, Andrew Lange, hit a double to right field to plate two runs and give his Redskins a 2-0 lead.

The Redskins starting pitcher, Marc Siefring, got a base hit to right field to plate a third run of the inning.

Stuckey came out and pitched a much better top of the second as he retired two batters via the strikeout.

A lead-off walk from Mason Baxter opened the bottom of the second. Noah Riley put his team on the scoreboard with a double to plate Baxter and cut St. Henry’s lead to 3-1.

Jack Wehe replaced Stuckey on the mound for Parkway in the top of the third. The Redskins were able to tack two more runs on Parkway. One run in the top of the third and one in the top of the fourth.

Siefring and Lange both pick up additional RBIs in the game as St. Henry had a 5-1 lead after 3 1/2 innings.

Wehe allowed just two hits over the final three innings as he kept his Panthers in striking distances.

In the bottom of the sixth, Wehe and Stuckey reached base with nobody out. Siefring, still on the mound for St. Henry, limited the damage. Siefring allowed a run to score on a RBI ground out from Nick Riley to cut the Redskins lead to 5-2.

Siefring recorded the final out of the game with a strikeout to give St. Henry a 5-2 victory.

“I don’t think we played overall bad at all, just St. Henry was able to come up with the big hits. With two outs and runners on we didn’t have the hit we need to break the game open. Other than that I thought Jack threw well,” said Parkway ACME coach Eddie Burtch.

The Redskins improve to 4-1 on the year and Parkway drops to 4-2 on the season and will welcome the Celina Bulldogs to Don Black Field on Friday night.
