Duckett Controls Dieterich


Shelbyville baseball went to 6-0 on Tuesday with a drubbing of Dieterich, 9-3.

Dieterich used small ball early to get a lead and stay in the game through three innings, but it wouldn't be enough. The Rams caught fire in 4th and got separation, then left Dieterich in the dust.

Sophomore Lucas Duckett went the distance allowing three runs, on five hits and four walks, while striking out three. Meanwhile, the Ram hit knocked out nine hits, with seven of the nine Rams hitting safely. 

Dieterich used small ball early to get a lead, but it wouldn't be enough. The Maroons took a 1-0 lead in the 1st as their lead-off man drew a walk, was sacrificed over and scored on an error. Duckett then rang up the next two batters and that was that. Dieterich's starter, Traub, only allowed Shelbyville slugger Luke Hatfield to reach on an error.

Poe got a lead-off single in the 2nd and was sacrificed over again. However, Campton hit to the mound and Duckett threw to 3rd baseman Brett Peifer, who threw to 2nd baseman Jake Keown, to get Poe out on the base paths. Jake Keown then made an unassisted play on another fielder's choice to halt the small play scheme.

The Rams wrested the lead away in the bottom of the 2nd. Catcher Garrett Manship singled and Zach Williams reached on an error. Duckett sacrificed the runners closer to scoring and, with two outs, Brown walked. With the bases loaded Keown singled home two runs, 2-1 Rams.

Dieterich used a couple errors to knot the score in the 3rd. Both Bohnhoffs reached on errors. A fly out couldn't get the runs home, but the next fly ball got one run home from 3rd to make it 2-2. The Ram took another lead, when Nate Standerfer led off the bottom of the 3rd with a single. Manship followed with a single and Williams reached on an error, 3-2.
