Carson High baseball uses two walk-offs to down Reed The Senators knew their two contests against Reed had plenty of postseason implications and Carson responded in kind. The Senators used walk-off hits from Kobe Morgan in game one (4-3) and Ryan Marquart in game two (2-1) to sweep the Raiders. For Maruqart, his game-winning hit came in his first at-bat of the season. “I just wanted to swing the bat and it ended up working,” said Marquart. “I don’t really get to do that. I was just really happy to touch the base for once.” The two wins gives Carson baseball a 6-8 record and leaves the Senators in sole possession of the No. 6 slot in Northern Nevada Class 5A.
