ONEKAMA — Ludington won the first game of Thursday’s non-conference doubleheader in Onekama 7-6, but the second game was suspended because of darkness with the Orioles trailing, 13-3 after four innings.

Sam Hanson was in the pitcher’s circle for the first game and gave up five hits, five walks and struck out two.
Ayiana Rangel led the Ludington offense with two hits, a home run and a double, and one RBI. Sabrina Ramirez was 2-for-3 and Jody Meisenheimer had a single and drove in two runs.
“It was an important one for us,” said Ludington coach Sierra Holmes. “We made a few mistakes, but we did a lot of things right. It was very evenly matched, so we had to make key plays and get key hits. We planned to play six innings, but we were tied 6-6 at the end of the sixth. They had several runners on base in the bottom of the inning, so we had to make plays under pressure.
“Although I would have liked to have seen us hit the ball harder, and compete more closely in the second game, there were a lot of good things to build on overall.”
In the suspended game, Meisenheimer threw the first 3 1/3 innings and surrendered eight hits, walked two and struck out three.
Hanson came on to pitch the next 2/3 innings and gave up one hit.
Rangel paced the offense for the Orioles with two doubles and an RBI. Meisenheimer also was 2-for-3 with an RBI.
Ludington stays out of the conference with a road trip to Cadillac on Friday.
