Walls fans 15

in 8-6 win

SULLIVAN — Brayden Walls fanned 15 Sullivan hitters as Washington defeated the Golden Arrows, 8-6, in baseball Thursday.

Walls (3-3) allowed three earned runs on five hits while walking four in seven innings for Washington (11-7).

“Brayden’s 15 strike outs were obviously a special feat,” Washington coach Steve Reed said. That tied him for third in school history. Defensively we haven’t been as sharp. We had a couple of throwing mistakes that cost us. We need to get back to where we were a couple of weeks ago. But, Brayden did a great job.”

Terry Buhr holds the record for the most strikeouts in game with 18 (1972). Kenny Vance fanned 16 in 1943.

John Wilz (1948), Rick Alford (1974), Jeff Day (1983), Matt Coleman (1984, and twice in 1985) and Jeff Day (1984), all equaled Walls’ performance.

Walls now has 53 strike outs and possesses a 2.27 ERA. Opposing batters are hitting .193.

Washington built leads of 1-0, 2-0 and 4-0 with runs in the third, fourth and fifth innings. Sullivan scored three runs in the bottom of the fifth to cut the gap to 4-3.

But Washington responded with four runs in the seventh and then held on as Sullivan scored three times in the bottom of the inning.

Patrick Arvin drove in three runs for the Hatchets on two strikeouts. Arvin now has 16 RBIs on the season.

Jarrod Robinson drove in two runs on two hits.

Jalen Hyde, Tyler Edmiston and Kyle Pfender each had hits for Washington.

“Offensively we’ve been hitting the ball recently,” Reed said. “We scored 30runs in the past three games.”

Washington’s Friday home game with Tell City was lost to rain. The Hatchets host Bloomfield Tuesday.
