Hatchets get first win over Loogootee


“We had the squeeze play on,” Reed said. “I wanted to put it on the first pitch, the pitch was a little low and it was called strike one. It was something down in the zone and it bounced. We had the squeeze on and it just didn’t work out.”

In the bottom of the inning, Moody relieved Bedwell, who had pitched all six innings up to that point. The sophomore pitcher allowed three hits, two runs and walked six, while striking out three. For whatever the reason, Moody couldn’t find the strike zone. Moody walked three of the first four batters he faced to bring Ben Blackwell up with one out. Blackwell lifted a fly ball to left fielder Nick Gray and Bell broke for home after tagging up. Gray’s throw was a little high, but good enough for Scheid to place the tag after Bell slid past the plate to send the game to extra innings.

“In that situation, it’s do-or-die,” Reed said. “There is no hitting the cut right there, it’s throw through the guy. He came up and luckily it wasn’t too deep. Nick doesn’t have a great arm, but he had just enough on it. It was a big play.”

Neither offense was able to get anything going through the first three innings, thanks to the sharp pitching from Miller and Bedwell. To start the top of the fourth, Garland reached on a bunt single for Washington’s first hit of the game. Garland advanced to second on a groundout by Bedwell on a passed ball against Bell. Scheid struck out and cleanup hitter Eric Long was hit by a pitch to put runners at the corners.

With a 1-2 count on Wirey, Long took off on a delayed steal for second and Miller tried to throw him out at second, but the ball ended up in the outfield, which allowed Garland to score.
