KAHOKA, Mo. — The long road home is finally over, and the Quincy Notre Dame baseball team has no blemishes to show from its travels.

The Raiders capped a string of 10 consecutive road games with Tuesday’s 12-1 victory over Clark County in which they put together a pair of five-run innings and received another quality start from right-hander Jake Schisler.

QND is 19-1 overall, went 10-0 away from Ferd Niemann Jr. Memorial Ballfield and will play its first game at The Ferd since April 8 when it hosts Camp Point Central at 6 p.m. Friday.

Leading 1-0 on the heels of Tucker Tollerton’s RBI single in the first inning, the Raiders scored five times in the second inning as a hit batter and two walks loaded the bases with one out. Schisler doubled to right field to plate two runs, Tollerton singled to drive in another before Dalton Miller had a sacrifice fly and Brady Kindhart added an RBI single.

In the fourth, the Raiders loaded the bases with two outs before Colin Kurk was hit by a pitch to drive in one run. Schisler walked to force in another before Tollerton and Miller were hit by pitches in consecutive at-bats and Kindhart walked, leading to the five-run frame.

Schisler went 2 for 2 with three runs scored and three RBIs, while Tollerton was 2 for 3 with three RBIs. The Raiders had just six hits, while drawing nine walks and getting hit by five pitches. Clark County also committed three errors.

Schisler pitched four innings, allowing one unearned run and seven hits while striking out seven and walking none. Miller struck out two in one inning of relief.
