Rams Up Root Flora

The Shelbyville Rams (17-11) got some free passes in the 7th inning to uproot Flora in the Vandalia Regional on Wednesday and extend their season with a 5-4 victory.

Luke McConnell (7-1) came on in the 7th to relieve Tyler Hendryx, who carried the water for 6 and a 1/3 innings, to halt Flora, while Flora’s closer, Pearce, couldn’t close.

Flora still felt good with a 4-2 lead going into the bottom of the 7th. But the Rams got just enough runs to vault past the Wolves and end Flora’s season. Pearce held Shelby in the 6th, but not in the 7th, as he lost his stuff.

Ryan Stenger led off with a single and Spencer Shadwell and Garrett Brachbill walked to load the bases. Lucas Duckett reached on a fielder’s choice, but Kennell was forced out at home. McConnell drew a walk and forced in Shadwell to make it a 1-run game, 4-3. Sheldon Meyer then came up with a 2-run, walk-off single to win the game, 5-4.

Flora got all three of their runs in the 1st inning as a down payment. They got one more run in the 7th, but it wasn’t enough. Shelby chipped away with a run in the 3rd. Shadwell hit his second single and advanced to 2nd on a ground out. With two outs, McConnell slapped the RBI-single.

Shelby got another run in the 5th, involving Shadwell and McConnell. Shadwell led off with a walk and Brachbill sacrificed him to 2nd. Duckett drew a walk and Shadwell went to 3rd on a wild pitch. McConnell then lifted a 1-out sacrifice fly to center field. Shadwell tagged and scored to make it a 1-run game, 3-2.

Spencer Shadwell was a perfect 2-for-2 at the plate and got on base all four times, scoring three of those times. McConnell got the timely hits, going 1-for-2 and driving in an all important three runs for the win. He singled a run in, sacrificed a run in, and walked to force a run in. Sheldon Meyer drove in two of the five runs with his one hit, the walk-off winner.
