Barr-Reeve wins opener at WHS

(Continued)

To lead off the bottom of the fourth, Bedwell doubled into the right center field gap, but came up lame sliding into first base after suffering more cramps. He was replaced by a pinch runner, Nick Gray, but he was picked off second on Dale Wirey’s fielder’s choice to the Graber. Zach Scheid popped out to end the fourth to keep the Hatchets with a goose egg in the box score.

“You would like to have those two runs back, but he battled his tail off,” Reed said. “He put us in position to win, we just didn’t hit.”

The reason Washington couldn’t hit was because of the mastery on the mound from Graber. He allowed two hits, walked none and struck out four in seven innings, while throwing just 76 pitches. The biggest problem that Graber faced all game was the four errors committed by his defense.

“He’s one of those guys that doesn’t play basketball, so he’s been throwing since January,” said Barr-Reeve coach Nathan Lester. “He was my first arm to go to because he’s ready. Knowing that his pitch count was low was nice to see, I think at the end of the fourth he had thrown 33 pitches. He had a great outing, he kept the ball down for the most part. He elevated a couple of 0-2 pitches, which drives me nuts, but sometimes that happens this early in the year. We looked like a team that just came out of the gym, but that’s the way it goes. This weather has been pretty hectic, we’ll figure it out as we go.”
