Two days after dropping two games to rival Huron, the Skyline baseball team battled Huron on Wednesday and took a late lead 6-4 before the game was called. It was a nice bounce back game for the Eagles who lost 10-9 and 15-2 on Monday. But there is still an inning to be played and anything can happen in baseball. They hope to complete the game on April 26.
Wednesday’s game was pitcher’s duel until the sixth inning. Trailing 1-0 heading into the sixth, Skyline scored six runs. The River Rats rallied with three runs in the bottom of the inning.
The Eagles had eight hits and two errors. The River Rats had three hits and an error.
Shea O’Brien (double) and Andrew Goldsmith each had two hits for the Eagles. Sam Winger had a triple with three RBI and a run scored. Jacob Wilkie had a hit and two walks and Karl Gawlas also drew two free passes.
Skyline’s Dayton Stampler allowed three hits, four runs, five walks with three strikeouts in 5.1 innings of work. Sam Winger got the final two outs for the Eagles.
Taha Ebrahim, Kade Cupp and Jake Bernstein had hits for the River Rats.
Joe Wade started for Huron and worked 5.2 innings (7 hits, 6 earned runs, 3 Ks and 6 walks). Davis Malmer got the final out for the River Rats.
