Hatfield Slams Back-to-Back

Shelby Legion baseball (Posts 289/611/725) is on a roll. After two recent sweeps, on Tuesday they mauled Moultrie-Douglas, 18-5.

Chief mauler was Shelbyville Slugger Luke Hatfield, who hit back-to-back grand slams and then a third consecutive home run, a solo shot, for a total of nine RBIs, all off round-trippers.

Shelby pounded out 16 hits, twice as many as Moultrie-Douglas. Eleven Shelby batters hit safely and four had multiple hits. Hatfield was 3-for-5, Gunner Theis was 2-for-3, Hayden Cole was 2-for-5, and Neil Yockey was 2-for-3.

Moultrie-Douglas had a 2-0 lead off a hit batter and two singled in the 2nd. The mauling occurred in the top of the 3rd, a 14-run beat down.

Shelby had only has two base runners the first two innings, off a hit batter and a walk. Trevor Moore then lit the fuse with a lead-off single. Yockey walked, and Michael Baker singled to load the bases.

Jake Keown singled a run in and Thies singled a run in to tie the score, 2-2. Still with no outs, the first five batters reaching base and the bases jammed, the mighty Hatfield came to the plate.

Hatfield hammered the first pitch and with one swing of the bat jolted Shelby into the lead with a grand slam, 6-2 Shelby.

Still with no outs, Cole singled. That retired the Mo-Do starter. Andrew Hawkins greeted the new pitcher with a single, making it eight straight batters reaching base.

After a fly out Moore and Yockey walked, the 9th and 10th batters out of 11 to reach base. Ben Helton walked and Keown walked for three walks in a row. Theis singled again in the inning and drove in his second run.

Hatfield came to the plate again in the 3rd with the bases loaded and with one strike hit his second grand slam of the inning, off a second pitcher, to cap the 14-run inning.
