Rams maul Morrisonville


The Mohawks needed to respond, but Miller gunned them down. He rang up the first two batters. He walked a man, then KO’d the next batter.

Shelby scored with two outs in the 4th. Hatfield hit a bases empty double and Standerfer made it two 2-baggers in a row. Yockey reached on an error and a wild pitch moved the runners. Standerfer scored and Shelby was up 8-0.

With a healthy lead, Miller was relieved by sophomore Lucas Duckett. Duckett rang up the first batter he faced. A pop out to Yockey. Duckett gave up a walk, but Standerfer threw from 1st to 2nd and Yockey tagged the base runner out to end the inning.

Shelby cashed in again in the 5th. Manship and Luke McConnell led off with walks. With one out, Keown walked. With two outs and the bases loaded, Hatfield hammered his second straight double, driving in two more runs, 10-0.

Morrisonville finally got on the board in the bottom of the 5th. A walk and a 1-out single got them a run. Another single and a fielder’s choice made it 10-2 Rams.

Shelby got one of those runs back in the 6th. Yockey and Hawkins reached on consecutive errors and Manship hit an RBI single, 11-2. Duckett gave up a solo hit in the 6th and threw his second strikeout.

Hatfield opened the 7th with a first-pitch shot out of the park, 12-2 Rams. With one out, Yockey singled and Hawkins, Manship, and pinch hitter Tyler Hendryx walked. Manship scored on a pitcher error, 13-2.

Morrisonville had succeeded in forcing the game to go seven innings and scored a couple more runs, but that was cold comfort. A single, a walk and a double brought in Hatfield to close out the Mohawks with the score, 13-4.

Hatfield faced three batters and got them all. The first batter flew out to right, then Hatfield rang up the next two. One was on a 3-2 pitch and the last man on a 1-2 pitch.
