Baseball/softball roundup: Broncos fall at Rider

Comments () A Text Size

WICHITA FALLS — Fifteenth-ranked Wichita Falls Rider struck Denton hard on Tuesday, defeating the Broncos 8-0.

The key to Rider’s success was accomplishing what Denton failed to when it had the opportunity to — hitting a grand slam.

In the first inning, Denton’s Trevor Claytor was at bat with Josh Chavez on first, David Morris on second and Charles Boosa on third. Denton had two outs.

Claytor hit a hard shot fielded by Rider’s second baseman, who tagged out Chavez. From then on, it was all downhill for Denton and uphill for Rider.

In the second inning, Peyton Geisinger hit a grand slam to put Rider up 5-0.

David Morris (1-1) took the loss for Denton (7-11, 1-5 District 5-4A), allowing eight runs on and hits.
