Hatchets fall to Linton, 13-0

WASHINGTON — Following its first conference win of the season, Monday over Vincennes Lincoln, the Washington baseball team was looking to win for the fifth in the past six games. Unfortunately for the Hatchets, they could never find their footing.

Linton defeated Washington, 13-0, Tuesday evening in five innings at the Sports Complex in a dominating performance, which left Hatchets coach Steve Reed scratching his head in disbelief.

The Miners scored four runs in the top of the first against freshman pitcher Jake Bedwell, on just three hits.

After a scoreless second inning, the Miners scored two more runs on run scoring hits from Trent Vowell and Calvin Allen to push the led to 6-0.

Bedwell had gotten the save the night before at Vincennes Lincoln, but he told Reed he was good to go. Bedwell lasted only three innings, while allowing five hits, two walks, three wild pitches and seven runs.

“Jake (Bedwell) just didn’t have it today,” Reed said. “You can’t expect a freshman to run out there and get juniors and seniors out every time.”

Bedwell walked the first two batters of the fourth, and was pulled for Dalton Devine. Devine didn’t have any better luck. Devine totaled three outs, and walked six and surrendered six runs.

Despite the tough night on the mound, Reed was more concerned about the lack of hitting from his team.

Coming into the season, Washington knew they would lack depth in the pitching staff, but Reed said the offense has to be the constant.

“My biggest concern today is the zero offensively,” Reed said. “What did we have one or two hits, we didn’t have many. That’s just something that we have to keep fighting through and find a way to correct. Yesterday, Vincennes Lincoln walked nine or ten batters, today this guy (Aspen Taylor) didn’t walk anybody and that’s the difference.”
