Hatchets win two, lose Sult

WASHINGTON — Brayden Walls tossed a two-hitter and hit two home runs in a doubleheader for the Washington baseball team at the Sports Complex Saturday.

The 4-0 blanking of Southridge capped a comeback after the Hatchets dropped a 16-6 decision in the opener to Northeast Dubois that included a knee injury to Nathan Sult that delayed the game by 20 minutes.

Sult was attempting to score in the fifth inning on a hit by Jake Bedwell with the Jeeps (10-9) leading 6-3. The relay throw home by Jeep secondbaseman Gage Kniess just beat Sult to the plate, and as catcher Nolan Rasche stepped to his left to apply the tag, he inadvertently stepped on Sult’s knee.

The kneecap was later discovered to have been dislocated, and fell back into place as Sult was removed from the field by EMT’s who had been called to assist.

Sult was taken to Daviess Community Hospital where he was treated for the injury before returning home with a full cast.

While it is hoped the kneecap was the only injury suffered on the play, a final diagnosis will not be known until Sult sees specialists in Jasper on Monday. Sult’s father Todd, who returned to the field after Nathan was treated at the hospital to retrieve equipment he uses as the public address announcer for Hatchet baseball, said there was bruising on the knee where the original injury occurred.

“We wouldn’t have 13 wins this year without Sult behind the plate,” Washington coach Steve Reed said. “He’s been huge for us. I don’t know how he is just yet, but we’ll have to see how it plays out on Monday. That’s all we can do at this point.”

Walls tied the game with the Jeeps early at one with the first of his two home runs on the day in the opening inning.
