Varsity Baseball Boys Fall In Championship Game

Varsity Baseball Boys Fall In Championship Game

"Telesis is usually a tough game for us so it was nice to come out and win handily", Salome coach Zack Clough said. "So we can get people on, we just need those hits to bring them in". Three consecutive errors made by the Lady Patriots allowed both senior Tori Chiu and Emily Groake to each get a run on the board.

Even though it was a 3-0 loss to Elkhart on March 29, Reed pointed to that game as the moment the Lady Panthers' fortunes began to change.

"My boys came into this one wanting to hit the baseball", Duey said.

"We had a good game today", Gillis said.

Kaiti White (5-1) was the winning pitcher for Fairfield.

He threw for four innings, giving up no runs on four hits. He struck out eight and walked four.

"We just had a discussion that when guys throw six innings, seven innings, we usually fare pretty well", Beward said. From there, all the Frogs had to do was keep Telesis at bay and that is exactly what they did.

Offensively, every Tiger in the lineup contributed.

For Necedah, Gabe Slye went 2 for 2 with an RBI, Trenton Whipple went 1 for 1 with a pair of runs scored, Jaron Murphy went 1 for 3 with an RBI and Isaiah Herried went 1 for 2 at the plate.

"Eric's really hitting the ball well", Duey noted. Greenwood had three RBI. And this season, Reimer hopes the hot hitting will be contagious while pitchers buckle down on the rubber.

Senior Dee Garner and sophomore Nathan Baker each had a double.

Baker singled in a run in the fifth to make it 11-0. Freshman Ashley Hernandez had a two-run single to go with RBI singles from Hix and Chandler. Abby Keaffaber found a hole in left field to drive in run number two. Snapp was 2-for-5 with two runs scored and the home run.

Nottingham needed Houghton to take the lead, considering how the young Hamilton squad refused to go away despite the opposing pitcher's dominance.

Lexington/Ridgeview scored two runs to take a 2-0 lead in the first inning.

Trailing 3-2 in the bottom of the seventh, Northlake Christian tied the game without the benefit of a hit. Marschok said his team played strong defense, making one error, and he's optimistic about the road ahead.

With Nick Houghton on its mound, the stands full and the weather finally starting to take a turn for the better, the Nottingham High baseball team was confident good things would happen. In the fourth inning, Drew Carter got a double and Nick Schnopp drove him home for the game's only run on an RBI single to right.

All Abby Fiessinger did was swing at pitches she knew she could hit. The Comets added three more in the inning. In the top of the seventh the visitors cobbled together a five-run frame to seal the deal.

Carson-Newman's offense once again had the answer as Sharpe walked with one out and Snapp doubled to left.

Not to mention, Rinus helped her own cause by hitting 2-for-3 at the plate, equaling the production of Fiessinger, Haley Caldwell and Taylor Scott. His hit was a triple.

In the third, junior Abbie Hix singled and scored on a groundout from senior Jordyn Breitbarth.
