Waynesfield-Goshen 35, Upper Scioto Valley 7
WAYNESFIELD — No, the score is not a typo.
The Waynesfield-Goshen Tigers scored 17 runs in the first inning and cruised to the win over the Upper Scioto Valley Rams on Monday at Waynesfield-Goshen High School.
W-G scored five more runs in the second inning, seven in the third, and six in the fourth before the game mercifully ended after four and a half innings.
USV pitchers walked 12 batters and hit three more with pitches in the first inning alone. For the game, they walked 27 and hit seven.
W-G first baseman Taylor Hensley narrowly missed hitting for the cycle. She had a home run and a single in the first inning and added a triple in the second.
New Bremen 16, Botkins 1
BOTKINS — Botkins Trojans’ Erin Place went 2 for 2 and drove in the Trojans’ only run in the loss Tuesday at Botkins Community Park.
New Bremen scored two runs in the first, nine in the fourth and five in the fifth.
Sidney Lehman 5, Waynesfield-Goshen 2
WAYNESFIELD — The Cavaliers chipped away after falling behind 2-1 in the first inning, scoring a run each in the third, fourth, fifth and seventh innings to pull out the win Tuesday at Waynesfield.
The Tigers took a 2-1 lead in the first when Justus Ball and Dylan Little reached on errors and Gabe Hennon doubled to drive them in.
But W-G would muster just one hit the rest of the way.
It was a sharp contrast to the 19 hits the Tigers knocked out on Monday in a 19-18 loss to USV.
Little had four hits in that game. Hennon, Taylor Schultz and Jacob Frank added three apiece. And Ball had two hits.
Hennon drove in four runs, Little three, and Schultz, Frank, Ron Jarvis and Lake Turner each plated two.View more articles in:
