Hatchets win two, lose Sult

(Continued)

WASHINGTON —

However, it was the 11-strikeout pitching performance in the nightcap that gave the Hatchets a much needed lift.

Walls retired the first 13 batters he faced against Southridge (13-7) in a favorable 1-0 dual with Raider Jacob Brewer. Walls¹s second home run, the ball struck the upper center of the right field scoreboard on the fly in the fourth inning, gave Washington the lead on the Hatchets’ third hit of the game.

Brewer broke up the perfect game with the first Raider hit in the fifth.

“That¹s what He (Brayden) does,” Reed said. “It’s been like that every start (Walls is 8-0 on the season). He’s getting into unchartered territory, The school record is nine wins for a season.”

Those nine wins were earned in 1997 by Dustin Barnard. Walls tied the school mark or eight held by Kevin Decker (2006), Tony Barnard (1989), Barnard (1996), Danny Weaver (1973), Chris Clements (1991) and Kevin Chapman (1976).

“The thing I liked about today was - the Dubois game didn’t turn out the way we wanted - and Brayden goes out and puts on a he-man performance. It was huge.”

Bedwell caught the shutout after seeing little, if any, time behind the plate this season.

“I though Jake did a great job behind the plate in the second game,” Reed said. “He hasn’t had any looks behind the plate. He got thrown in there and caught a shutout. That’s all you need to say.”

Tyler Edmiston put the game away at the plate for Washington in the sixth with a three-run blast of his own that scored Bedwell and Walls who had reached to open the inning with singles.

“We came in the sixth inning and I said we had to add on,” Reed said. “It’s easier to play defense when you’ve got a little cushion. The three-run home run by Edmiston was huge. That was three big runs.”
