The Western Michigan Christian Warriors regrouped from a tough Game 1 on Monday and earned a split of a baseball doubleheader against Byron Center Zion Christian.

Seven errors in the first game allowed Zion to earn a 9-8 victory. The Warriors came back in the nightcap for an 8-3 victory.

In the opener, six of eight runs for Zion Christian were unearned.

Caleb McKay led WMC in the opener with an inside-the-park home run, a triple, four RBI and two runs scored. Max Miller had two hits and drove in one run while Will Liggett had a key RBI-double in the fifth inning. Nathan Clausing had two hits.

Quint Menefee was the starter and lasted four innings. He struck out five before giving way to Liggett, who pitched the final three innings.

“We need to clean up our fielding to put ourselves in a better position to win games going forward,” WMC coach Darin Waller said.
In the second game, the Warriors scored seven runs in the first two innings and set the tone for the remainder of the game. McKay had another triple and drove in a run. Menefee and Clausing each had a two-run single. 
McKay, Sam Kuiper and Jack Sipe combined on the mound in the Warrior victory.
