Prep Baseball Roundup: Redmen spoil Hoover’s huge day
Chandler Hoover’s big day was spoiled by Bellevue Tuesday.
The Columbian slugger smacked a pair of homers and had three RBIs against the Redmen, but Bellevue used a 14-hit attack to take down the Tornadoes, 9-5.
Dylan DeWitt paced the unbeaten Redmen with a two-double, four-hit game. He drove in a run and scored twice. Trent Stamm also had a big day, with a double, two hits and four RBIs.
Dalton Jarvis got the win for Bellevue, going 6 1/3 innings, striking out five and walking six. He allowed five runs, all earned.
Bryce Lonsway took the loss for the Tornadoes, allowing eight runs on eight hits, but only five of those runs were earned.
Late surge lifts Rams
SYCAMORE – Upper Sandusky’s Sam Plott and Mohawk’s Austin Shock matched zeros on the scoreboard through five innings. But then the Rams got rolling with six unanswered runs. Mohawk got on the board in the bottom of the seventh, but it was too little, too late as the Rams took one from their Wyandot county rivals 6-1.
Plott picked up his second win of the season, allowing just three hits (singles to Andrew Loose, Wes Shaw and Derrick Sowers).
Andre Myers matched Mohawk’s team total with three base hits in the game. Josh Lear and Trey Clark each added a pair of singles while Daniel Newell doubled as Upper Sandusky improves to 5-3.
Shaw scored the Warriors’ lone run.
Tough day for the Tigers
ATTICA – St. Mary’s had 12 runs on five hits.
That what 10 walks and eight Seneca East errors will do.
The end result was a 12-1 Panthers win, one that SE coach Frank Lamoreaux said was the result of his squad not being ready to play.
“We basically didn’t show up,” Lamoreaux said. “Hopefully tomorrow will be better. We got out outplayed. They played flawlessly and we played full of flaws.”
St. Mary’s (5-0) got a two-run homer from Brandon Green, while Michael Lamb scored two runs. Brett St. Claire won the game on the mound.
Seneca East’s Mason McWilliams drove in his team’s only run. The Tigers fell to 6-1.
Errors costly in Chieftain loss
VAN BUREN – Hopewell-Loudon trailed Van Buren 5-3 when the Chieftains came to bat in the top of the seventh, but rallied for three runs to take a 6-5 lead.
However, Van Buren plated two in the bottom half of the inning, including the winning run off a Chieftain error for a 7-6 victory.
Tyler Imes powered Hopewell-Loudon (2-4) with a home run, a single and four RBIs. Braden Park also picked up an RBI.
Dryfuse powers NR comeback
BLOOMDALE -Jake Dryfuse slugged a three-run homer, and New Riegel used a five-run burst in the seventh inning to rally past Elmwood, 10-6.
Dryfuse finished the game with four RBIs, while Brandyn Reinhart had two hits and drove in three runs. Andrew Hohman doubled twice, scored twice and drove in a run. Josh Nye also scored twice for the Blue Jackets.
Brady Hall got the win in relief, throwing 3 2/3 inning and allowing one run on one hit.
