Hatchets fall to Warriors, 10-5


“In the bottom of the inning, what do we do, we threaten and load the bases, but it’s 10-4,” Reed said. “At 6-4, it’s a totally different outcome. They get a little nervous and get on edge, at 10-4 they’re still relaxed. That’s been out track record — we compete, we’re in the game for six innings and we just can’t finish and the wheels come off in the last inning. That’s exactly what happened.”

North Knox jumped on Ramsey early with four runs in the first, and for a moment it looked like the junior pitcher wasn’t going to be long for Thursday’s game. The Warriors got run-scoring singles from McKinnon, Christopher Graman and Plummer to take the early lead. Washington bounced back with two runs each in the first two innings on just two hits in total to tie the game at four.

“Offensively, against their starter (Shanson Lamb, 6 1-3 innings, five runs) we have got to chase that guy in the fourth or fifth inning and we didn’t do that,” Reed said. “We let him come out in the seventh and I don’t want to take anything away from him, but we have to chase him when he’s wild and erratic.”

North Knox loaded the bases with one out in the third, but Ramsey was able to work out of trouble with a strikeout of Fields and a flyout to centerfield by Jones. In the fourth, the Warriors took the lead back with a Graman sacrifice fly and a Plummer RBI double.

After that, however, Ramsey didn’t allow a hit over the final 2 2-3 innings, while allowing just two runners to reach base on an error and a walk.

Ramsey’s final stats weren’t glamorous — 6 2-3 innings, eight hits, eight runs (six earned), six walks, two hit batters and three strikeouts — but he was one out from a complete game and he kept Washington within striking distance on a day when he didn’t have his best stuff.

“I thought he settled down well,” Reed said. “He got in some trouble and we tried to get a complete game out of him, but with two outs in the seventh, he hit a guy and walked a guy, it was time to get him out.”
