Brian Read was lights out for the Truman baseball team.

Read pitched a four-hitter and struck out six to lead the Patriots to a 3-0 win over Lee’s Summit on Wednesday at Legacy Park.

“It was a nice win,” Truman coach John Eglich said. “Read threw heck of a game. What we wanted a pitcher to do, he did tonight,” Truman coach John Eglich said. “He kept ahead of the hitter and threw quality strikes.”

J.T. Hayes’ two-run first inning single was all Truman (2-1) and Read needed for the victory. Kyle Combs added two singles.

RAYMORE-PECULIAR 9, BLUE SPRINGS 3: A tough start prevented Blue Springs from opening the baseball season on a winning note.

Raymore-Peculiar led 6-0 after two innings and went on for a Suburban Big Six victory.

“It was good to get out and play a game,” Blue Springs coach Marc Hines said. “The pitchers threw strikes but they hit the ball,” Blue Springs coach Marc Hines said. “We didn’t walk anyone and had only one error. We’ll get better.”

Corbin Hare hit a two-run homer and Wylson Lamb singled twice for the Wildcats. The losing pitcher was Jay Corwin.

RAYTOWN SOUTH 14, WILLIAM CHRISMAN 4: Bralin Jackson singled four times and Justin Chigbogu homered to pace host Raytown South to the Suburban Middle Seven victory.

Steven Green scattered five hits over five innings for the victory. David Mooney took the loss.

“Costly errors beat us,” Chrisman coach J.R. Wells said. “If we hadn’t made errors, we would have ended innings with no damage.”

PARK HILL SOUTH 3, RAYTOWN 2: Host Park Hill South scored the winning run in the bottom of the seventh inning on a wild pitch for the Suburban Middle Seven victory.

“It was disappointing,” Raytown coach Jaime Oyler said. “I was proud of them. We made some fantastic plays. But we left 10 runners on base.”

AJ. Salinas had three singles and Michael Babbitt two singles to lead a nine-hit Raytown attack.
