Walls, WHS takes down Sullivan

(Continued)

WASHINGTON —

Washington added five more runs over the final three innings on just three hits as they were able to capitalize on seven walks and three hit batters. Five of the seven walks that were administered to Washington batters came around to score.

“If you go back and look in a high school baseball game more often than not guys that reach on errors or walk end up scoring,” Reed said. “You want the other team to earn their way on, and other teams are going to do that to us and we realize that.”

After a 5-2 start to the season, the Hatchets had a bit of a lull over the next seven games with a record of 3-4, Washington appears to be finding its rhythm and Reed said it starts with getting quality innings from his starters.

“We’ve stressed from the beginning, we want to play our best ball in May,” Reed said. “The key is Bedwell and (Tyler) Edmiston ¬ if they can go out and give us a solid six or seven innings every time they pitch ¬ we know what we’re getting out of Walls. We’ve gotten that out of Bedwell and Edmiston in their last starts they’ve had and that¹s why you see that three in a row.”
