Special to Reflector-Chronicle
The Abilene Rebels Senior Babe Ruth baseball team hosted Marion last night for a double-header and split the games.
The Rebels won the opener 5-4 in exciting fashion as Matt McClanahan hit a double in the bottom of the seventh that scored Mark Aylward, who was pinch-running for Logan Meuli who singled and Aylward was attempting to steal second base on McClanahan's hit, to break the 4-4 tie and win the game. The Rebels dropped the nightcap 11-2. Abilene, now 8-3, will be on the road this Thursday night for a double-header against Salina LDA with a start time of 6 p.m.
