Lawrence baseball rolls on Shawnee Mission North, 11-0

April 7, 2011


— Ross Johnson and Matt Sutliffe each had three hits, and Lawrence High’s baseball team stole six bases in five innings in an 11-0, run-rule-shortened rout of Shawnee Mission North on Wednesday at the Johnson County 3&2 Complex.

Garrett Cleavinger (1-2) allowed two hits over three innings for the win.

“We made the routine play,” LHS coach Brad Stoll said. “We had one throwing error trying to pick a runner off, so we’ll take that. We got a little bit better yesterday. We got a little bit better today. We have the River City Festival next week. We try to play three quality opponents and try to make strides.”

Lawrence collected 17 hits overall and scored eight runs in the second inning.

“We just attacked, went at it at the plate,” Stoll said. “Hanging an eight-spot in the second inning was huge. Six multi-hit guys. That’s a good day.”

The Lions improved to 3-4. SM North fell to 5-4.

LHS will travel Tuesday to Olathe South
