Jasper could sense that Walls was tiring and they struck in the sixth inning. Walls was able to record one out, which coincidentally was Shepherd again to lead off the inning. Edmiston relieved Walls, but he couldn’t stop the bleeding.
Jasper scored eight runs on five hits with the help of two Washington errors. Walls allowed 11 runs total on seven hits and five walks, and he struck out five Jasper batters. Despite the loss, Walls finished the season with an 8-2 record, and at the plate the senior finished with a .514 average with eight home runs and 28 RBI.
“Brayden had a great season,” Reed said. “I want to thank my seniors for all their hard work throughout the season. Brayden Walls had the best season I’ve ever witnessed, both on the mound and at the plate. I was privileged to be a part of that.”
