Hatchets lose to Wildcats

WASHINGTON — Losing a conference game 15-1 is never an easy pill to swallow, but it wasn’t the pitching that concerned Washington coach Steve Reed Saturday at the Sports Complex Saturday.

Mount Vernon batted around, scoring eight runs in the top of the seventh to hand Washington (8-6) a 15-1 Big Eight loss.

Yet, after scoring 10 runs the previous night in a 10-1 conference win at Boonville, the Hatchets managed four hits and the single run the following day.

“We just didn’t hit,” Reed said. “We struggled at the plate. We’ve got to start hitting the ball and competing at the plate. It’s something that we have to figure out.”

The Wildcats, 13-3, had led 7-1 heading into the seventh before the eight-run outburst.

Washington’s Jake Bedwell started and pitched through the first six innings. While he gave up seven runs on 11 hits, the Hatchet defense also made five errors that helped lead to Wildcat runs and an extended pitch count.

“I thought Jake threw the ball pretty well,” Reed said. “We made some errors behind him. We need to make those plays so we can help keep his pitch count down. I wasn’t going to let him throw more than 100 pitches. He has to come back for us next week.”

River Vanzant hit a home run in the top of the second inning to give the guests a 1-0 lead. Trevor Veeck and Clay Ford singled in the third for Mount Vernon’s second run.

Mount Vernon reached Bedwell for three runs in the fourth behind a double from Bryce Newman and singles from Logan Brown and Jevin Redman. A walk to Veeck was added to the mix.

The Wildcats added two in the sixth on two hits, a walk and an error.

Washington got its run in the sixth on a double from Brayden Walls and a fielder’s choice at second from Nathan Sult.
