Dexter Baseball Takes Pair from Skyline

The Dexter baseball team kept its slim hopes of a SEC Red title alive with a doubleheader sweep of Ann Arbor Skyline Monday.

The Dreadnaughts would have to win their final four games with hopes of Saline losing its final five for the Red title.

Conor Sweeny tossed a five-hit gem in the opener as the Dreadnaughts blanked Skyline 6-0. Sweeny struck out eight for the complete game win.

RBI singles by Chance Sobbry and Davis Bennett put Dexter on top 3-0 in the first.

The Dreads lead grew to 6-0 in the second with a two-run homer by Sobbry and a run scoring single by Cole Novara and that is all the Dreads would need behind the pitching of Sweeny.

Larry Salisbury led the offense with three hits and two RBI, while Sobbry had two hits with a home run and three RBI.

Garrett Sharp and Cooper Arnedt had two hits and a run scored each, Novara a hit and two RBI, and Bennett a hit and RBI.

Dexter fell behind 2-1 in the second game but scored two in the fourth and four in the seventh to pull away for an 8-2 win.

Sharp led the offense with three hits and an RBI.

Sobbry and Salisbury each had two hits and two RBI, Novara a hit and RBI, and Bennett a run scoring triple.

Mason McAllister earned the win on the mound, striking out four in four innings of work.

Dexter improved to 12-5 in the SEC Red and 19-7 overall.
