Hatchets get first win over Loogootee

LOOGOOTEE — The Loogootee baseball team had its chance to get back to .500 and pick up its fifth win of the season, but instead the visiting Washington Hatchets flipped the script to get their first win of the season.

The Hatchets (1-4) scored four runs in the eighth inning to beat Loogootee (4-6) 6-4 Wednesday evening at Les Page Field.

Washington held the Loogootee offense at bay for seven innings, which included a bases loaded situation in the bottom of the seventh. To start the top of the eighth inning, Jake Bedwell, the game’s starting pitcher, led off with a double to the left field wall. After Zach Sheid was hit by a pitch and a flyout out to deep center field by Eric Long, the Hatchets had runners at second and third with just one out. Dale Wirey put Washington ahead with an RBI single and Scheid scored during the next at-bat on a wild pitch by Resler to put the lead at 4-2.

Washington tacked on two more runs on throwing error’s from Casey Miller and catcher Hayden Bell to inflate the lead to 6-2. Loogootee added two runs in the bottom of the eighth, but freshmen Austin Moody was able to get the final outs for his first career victory. After close losses to Edgewood and Barr-Reeve, Washington was able to put on in the win column and the Lions suffered their second loss in a row.

After playing to a 2-2 tie through six innings, Washington had a golden opportunity in the top of the seventh to seal its first victory. With one out and runners at the corners, Washington coach Steve Reed decided to call in some trickery on a squeeze play, but the Lions were fooled and Dalton DeVine was tagged out in a rundown between third and home. It was the second out of the inning and Loogootee pitcher Trevor Resler would walk the next batter, but then got Colten Garland to flyout and end the threat.
