McNew K’s 14 in Raider win
South Ripley baseball may have fallen on Monday night but the Raiders responded in a big way on Tuesday night, using a freshman starting pitcher to lead the way in an upset win over a ranked opponent.
Mason McNew solidified his spot as South Ripley’s ace on the mound Tuesday night, delivering a complete game three-hitter in a 2-1 home win over Class A No. 22 Oldenburg Academy. The freshman, who has had a strong start to his spring, fanned 14 batters against just two walks to pick up his first career varsity win on the bump. McNew did so on 91 pitches through seven innings of work.
