Western's baseball team beat Rossville 9-1 on Monday at Russiaville to snap a three-game losing streak.

The Hornets jumped to a 1-0 lead in the top of the first inning, but the Panthers knotted the score in the bottom of the frame. Western added four runs in the second to take control.

The Panthers (14-4) totaled 10 hits. Ryan Rodman went 3 for 4 and drove in two runs, Brady Comer went 2 for 2 and drove in three runs, Levi Shoemaker was 2 for 2 with an RBI and Peyton Kauble had a double and an RBI.

James Paden started and pitched five innings for the win. He allowed two hits and an unearned run, struck out three and walked none. Relief pitchers Jaxson Trueblood and Jaiden McNulty worked one scoreless inning apiece.

"It was good to bounce back in the win column," Western coach Ryan Berryman said. "We had an error early that led to Rossville scoring in the first inning, but we tied it up and James Paden did a nice job throwing strikes and our bats responded with timely hits."

Ryan Berryman pointed to Miles Rudy as an offensive spark. He batted leadoff and had a single and two walks.

"Shoemaker, Kauble and [Cal] Berryman had good at-bats in the middle of our line to create balance in our offense and Brady Comer was excellent in the 9-hole," he added.
