“We have a way that we want to execute against,” said Loogootee coach Luke Woolems. “We went over it a few times in March and haven’t seen it since. It’s just one of those things, they put pressure on you and force you to make mistakes and that’s what happened in that situation.”
In the bottom of the fourth, Loogootee scored two runs on an RBI single from Branden Wilz and a bases loaded walk to Gage Harder. Bedwell walked three Lions’ batters in the inning, but was able to get Jake Blackwell to flyout to center with the bases loaded to end the inning.
In the fifth inning, Washington once again had runners at the corners and once again Reed sent the runner at first. This time Miller broke off the mound and caught the runner at third, DeVine, in a rundown, but another errant throw allowed him to score and tie the game at two.
“We are struggling to hit the ball and sometimes you have to look at where are in the order,” Reed said. “I’ve had teams in the past where I wouldn’t think about doing that, but this year it’s something we might have to go to. Not only that, but it gives you momentum.”
