GLEN ELLYN – Behind a five-run fourth inning, Glenbard South’s baseball team defeated Elmwood Park 7-4 in Metro Suburban Conference action Monday. Dylan Brambora went 2-for-3 with two runs scored and an RBI while Nick Yangas and Andrew Wrona both hit doubles. Yangas, Will Cornwell, Tim Marks and Jacob Straza all drove in runs. That offensive support was more than enough for starting pitcher Straza, who struck out five while yielding five hits in a complete game.

The Raiders were coming off an 8-3 nonconference loss against Plainfield North on Saturday. Wrona clubbed a solo homer in the defeat while Joey Atkinson had the team’s only other hit.

On April 16, Glenbard South laced 13 hits and beat Elmwood Park 12-7. Atkinson was 3-for-4 with two runs scored and Alex McGimpsey was 3-for-5 with a double, triple and three RBIs. Yangas, Wrona and Kyle Carli each added two hits.

Yangas was also the winning pitcher, striking out seven in 52/3 innings.

The Raiders are scheduled to close out a three-game MSC series today against Timothy Christian. A nonconference affair with Minooka looms Saturday.

Raiders on right track

Young Glenbard South squad finding success early in the season

Published: Wednesday, April 16, 2014 10:26 a.m. CDT

WHEATON – With only two seniors starting in the field, Glenbard South’s baseball team had plenty of unknowns heading into the spring.

But a lot of those questions have been answered during the Raiders’ strong start to the season, which included wins in six of their first eight games.

“We have a lot of inexperience,” Glenbard South coach Mike Riley said, “but we’ve been in every game we’ve played. And our kids battle for seven innings every game. At this point, our pitching and defense has been pretty good and the last few games, and the bats are coming around.”

On Saturday, the squad dropped a 7-4 decision to Wheaton Warrenville South in a nonconference affair, which put an end to a six-game winning streak.

“We didn’t play poorly on Saturday,” Riley said. “They just hit the ball hard. It was a hitter’s day.”

Glenbard South was coming off a three game sweep over Fenton in its first Metro Suburban Conference series, which wrapped up with an 11-7 decision April 10.

The Raiders overcame a 7-0 first-inning deficit behind a 15-hit performance by the offense. Andrew Wrona was a perfect 3-for-3 at the plate with two doubles and two RBIs, and Alex McGimpsey was 3-for-4 with two runs scored. Jacob Straza, Nick Yangas and Will Cornwell all had two hits and Tim Marks added a double and two RBIs.

Jacob Straza got the win in relief, allowing just two hits while

Varsity Baseball Recap - Week of April 7th

on Mon, 04/14/2014 - 13:02

Last week the Varsity baseball team won 4 of 5 games.  After defeating Lisle 3-2 on Monday the Raiders faced a scrappy Fenton team.  The Bison on Tuesday went out to a 2-0 lead early and held it for most of the game but the Raiders scored 3 in the 6th with a 2 run double by Dylan Brambora and an RBI single by Nick Yangas.  In the 9th inning the Raiders went ahead on an error 4-3 and Yangas got the Bison out 3 up and 3 down for his 2nd win of the season.  

In game 2 the Raiders held on for a 6-5 win after a Fenton rally was thwarted by a Will Cornwell strikeout to get a save.   Yangas,  Alex McGimpsey , and Joey Atkinson all had 2 hits and Yangas added 3 RBIs for the game.

In game 3 the Raiders gave Fenton a 7 run first inning and the Fenton parents were shaking hands like the game was in the bag.  But the Raiders fought back with an 8 spot in the 2nd and went on to an 11-7 win.  Jake Straza pitched 6 1/3 innings with no runs, 2 hits, 9 strikeouts and only 1 walk.  Offensively Andrew Wrona and Alex McGimpsey each had 3 hits.  Wrona, Atkinson, and Tim Marks all had 2 RBIs for the game.

Saturday the Raiders were defeated by Wheaton Warrenville South 7-4.  The game was close despite the Raiders being outhit 10-3.  Kyle Carli had a 2 run double for the Raiders.

The Raiders are now 7-2 overall and (3-0) in the Metro Suburban.  This weeks conference opponent is Elmwood Park and the Raiders will travel to Plainfield North on Saturday.
