Walls, WHS takes down Sullivan

WASHINGTON — As the calendar has turned to May and the sun is shining, the Washington baseball team has found a good rhythm, and senior Brayden Walls is leading the charge.

Washington (11-6) won its third straight game with a 7-0 victory over Sullivan (7-9) at the Sports Complex behind a dominating complete game performance from Walls.

Walls entered the game with a 1.00 ERA on the season and he didn’t disappoint the Hatchet fans who showed up to see the Washington ace pitch. Walls walked two, allowed three hits and struck out 11 Sullivan batters including five in the first two innings.

“Brayden (Walls) is just locked in,” said Washington coach Steve Reed. ”Every year I’ve been fortunate enough to witness some really good performances by seniors going back to Logan Hawthorne, Ethan Hunsinger, Matt Hooten with his big season with 11 home runs, Jalen Hyde’s monster year last year and now Walls. For me as a coach it’s a joy for me to watch young men have seasons like Walls is having this year with both the bat and on the mound ¬ it¹s amazing what he is doing.”

Freshman Jake Bedwell singled and scored in the first inning on a throwing error by Sullivan shortstop Tucker Smith to get the Hatchets on the board in the first inning. Walls doubled in Nathan Sult in the third inning after Sult led off the inning with a walk.

Bedwell doubled in the third inning and later walked. Reed has been impressed with how the freshman has continued to improve throughout the season with a .380 batting average and a 4.60 ERA on the mound.

“Jake’s a ballplayer, there’s no freshman about Jake,” Reed said. “The kid has been playing travel ball his whole life. He’s locked in at the plate, and there’s no problem hitting him out of the two-hole as a freshman.”
