Scale tips away from Shelby

It started out as a good game between Shelby Sr. Legion baseball and Mattoon, but in the end the scales tipped towards Mattoon, 7-4.

It was a pitchers' duel for most of the game. Shelby drew first blood in the bottom of the 3rd, but Mattoon got some help to draw even. Mattoon infielders made plays and Shelby outfielders made plays, while Mattoon pitcher Austin Warrem rang up 14 batters in 8 and a 1/3 innings. The game wore on into the 8th inning, still tied 2-2.

A Clayton Warfel 1-out bunt was miss-played. With two outs, Mattoon finally strung some hits together. Jordan Webb singled and Riley Walk got the best hit of the night.

The 2-run double was crushed into the right center field gap and not even the swift-footed Shelby outfielders could get to it. Dustin Temple followed with an RBI-single and Mattoon had a cushion, 5-2.

With one out in the bottom of the 8th, Shelby pitcher Jake Keown hit to right field and the fielder dove, but couldn't get it. The ball bounced by and Keown slid into 3rd. With two outs, Luke Hatfield struck out, but the ball went free. The catcher threw the ball over the 1st baseman's head and Keown scored, 5-3.

Keown went into the 9th and got the first batter, but the next two singled. Keown was pulled and Gunner Thies took the hill. After a ground out, Thies gave up and intentional walk to load the bases. He hit the next batter and forced in a run, 7-3.

Shelby was up against it, but Mattoon lifted their starter. The first relief pitcher gave up a walk to Hayden Cole and was pulled.

The next pitcher, Carter Price, threw a K and then two straight walks to load the bases. Vonderheide walked and it was 7-4. Keown came to the plate with the bases loaded and one out, as the potential winning run. However, the Mattoon infielders did their job again.
