Freedom fall to Jasper

WASHINGTON — The Washington Freedom Post 120/121 came into Thursday’s game with momentum after a good weekend at Floyd Knobs, but it just couldn’t find any rhythm.

The Freedom (3-7) lost 9-3 to Jasper (2-0) at the Sports Complex.

After a scoreless first inning, Washington's Tyler Edmiston led off the second with a double, Brayden Walls followed that with a single and Pike Central¹s Bailey White drove in Edmiston with a sacrifice fly to give the Freedom a 1-0 lead.

White, the Freedom starter, kept Jasper at bay while allowing just hit and struck out three through three innings.

In the fourth inning, the first two Jasper batters ‹ Courtland Betz and Zach Keusch - reached on a walk and a hit by pitch. After a throwing error by Freedom catcher Gavin Benock, Betz moved to third base. Riley Eckert’s groundout to shortstop scored Betz, and the next batter, Landon Ball, gave Jasper a 2-1 with an RBI single.

White got out of the fifth with no damage, but Jasper scored three runs on three hits in the sixth.  White didn’t record an out in the seventh inning, as Jasper’s first four hitters all reached base to score two runs.

Trevor Resler replaced White in relief and allowed one run, which was charged to White.

In six-plus innings, White allowed seven hits and two earned runs, while striking out five, but Washington trailed 8-1 heading to the bottom of the inning.

“Bailey (White) did a nice job,” said Washington coach Jeff Truelove. “He got up in the high 80s on pitches and kind of ran out of gas, and you do that against Jasper and they’re going to start hitting you. We had too many errors tonight.”

Washington scored a run each in the seventh and ninth inning on two RBI doubles from White, who drove in all three runs. In addition to White’s big night at the plate, third basemen Casey Miller also had two doubles, which has opened up a dilemma for Truelove.
