Rivet beats B-R for sectional title



Collin Wirth then hit a home run to open the bottom of the inning, and the Patriots were leading 4-0.

Addison Wagler opened the sixth with a double down the right field line and he scored on a Myron Stoll single to close the gap to 4-1.

Adam Graber singled to open the seventh and Cain Miller was walked to give the Vikings two on with no outs.

Brandon Wagler hit a 2-1 pitch that turned into a major league pop up caught by Allen off the mound and then Heath Graber forced Adam Graber at third on the evening¹s only controversial play.

Graber hit a high hopper to Rivet thirdbaseman Tanner Thomas that caught Thomas on a short hop. Having lost the play at first by mishandling the hop, Thomas then ran and dove at the bag at third to try and catch Adam Graber running from second.

Adam Graber was called out by Thomas touching the bag before Graber could reach.

It was a play that was not popular with a large Barr-Reeve crowd.

“The umpire said he stepped on the base,” Lester said. “I was watching him (Thomas) and it looked like he was trying to swipe tag him. In those situations you’re not always going to get the call. The bottom line is we had a chance, man - we had a chance. We just didn’t come through with big hits when we needed them.”

Addison Wagler then plated Barr-Reeve’s second run of the game with a single, scoring Miller from second.

Logan James was then retired on a ground ball to end the game.

“We really made a couple of different runs at them,” Lester said.

The Patriots welcomed Barr-Reeve starter Heath Graber with three consecutive one-out singles before Graber hit Wirth and issuing consecutive walks for the 3-0 lead.
