QUINCY — The Liberty baseball team wasn’t going to allow Nolan Robb to beat it.

So Abram Wiewel did.

After Quincy Notre Dame’s Logan Sutton singled with one out in the bottom of the seventh inning Thursday and stole second base, the Eagles chose to intentionally walk Robb. Wiewel followed by hitting a two-strike line drive to center field to drive in the winning run in a 2-1 victory at Ferd Niemann Jr. Memorial Ballfield.

It made a winner of Ethan Rose, who threw two scoreless innings of relief with one hit allowed and three strikeouts. Bradi Lahr threw the first five innings for QND, allowing one run and one hit with five strikeouts and two walks.

The Raiders (3-5) grabbed the lead in the second inning as Nick Spears led off with a double, took third on a wild pitch and scored on Gavin Doellman’s groundout.

Liberty answered with a run in the third as Noah Klauser walked with two outs, stole second base and scored on Reed Sparrow’s double.

Jackson Sims suffered the loss for the Eagles, striking out nine and walking three while allowing six singles over 6 ⅓ innings. Wiewel had two of the Raiders’ hits.
