COLDWATER – Lincolnview’s quick start When the Lancers put on the scoreboard seven runs in the first four innings, Perry was unable to recover in the Division IV Baseball District semifinals in Coldwater, where Lincolnview won 7-4 on Wednesday.
Lincolnview (18-5) is scheduled to play with the winner of the second semi-final on Wednesday in Caldwater between Lima Central Catholic and St. Henry, at 18:00 on Friday in Caldwater at the District Championships.
The LCC led St. Henry 3-0 at the bottom of the fifth half when the game was halted due to a rain delay. It is scheduled to resume today at 17.00, weather permitting.
The Lancers scored two wounds in the first inning, got another in the second inning and made two more wounds in the third and fourth innings to take a 7-0 lead.
Perry responded with a sixth inning four times, but it was as close as possible to the Commodores.
“We were a little shocked early,” coach Perry Mark Horsten said. “We’re not used to someone killing so much on Ryan (starting pitcher Ryan Inst). He didn’t have the best things. I liked the way we fought back. We had some chances if we could get a few key hits. ”
With a strong № 2 pitcher in Dane Ebel and a 7-0 lead, Lincolnview was able to pull out Landon Price’s starting pitcher before he threw 50 pitches, meaning he will be available on 125 pitches in Friday’s district championship match.
Perry took advantage of four walks in his big sixth inning. After one out Joey Horsten and Travis Nanchaf came out, and both scored Youngst on a three-pointer, reducing the lead to 7-2. Hunter Clett and Jehu Munis played in the third and fourth half of the half to load the base.
Jngst scored in a single singles field for Brady Shivili, and Klett scored with a passed ball, reducing the lead to 7-4.
“I don’t think we’ve reduced the intensity or the effort. Sometimes things just happen, ”Lincolnview coach Eric Fishpau said. “We have all the confidence in the world in our players, our attack, our defense, that we will come forward in this game at the end of the seventh half.
“All in all, we’re just proud of our steady bunch of guys with respect to one game. We have a chance to defend the district championship. This was one of our goals in the pre-season period back in March, ”he said.
Carson Fox was 3 on 3 with a double and two singles to lead the Lincolnview offense. Austin Bokrat was 2 on 3 with a triple and a single, and Cole Binkley was 2 on 4.
“Carson Fox in four holes continues to be our best reflector. It continues to be a catalyst in the middle of our lineup. He is in a phenomenal year and he plays baseball well, – said Rybka.
Joey Horsten became 2 on 3 for Perry.
Mark Horsten said: “It’s been a long time since we’ve been over 20 years (winning). It was a good season for us. We beat two pretty good MAC teams to get here. If we hadn’t put ourselves in the hole early and allowed the atmosphere to come to us early, I think we would have had a better chance. It was a solid season. “
The Thunderbirds took a 1-0 lead at the top of the third inning as Matt Quatman, Billy Burke and Braden Tarr went to load the base, and Jacob Lovek made a fourth-draw draw to score the run.
The LCCs rose to 3-0 at the top of the fifth half. Connor Gephart started the inning with a gait draw, the seventh allowed by St. Henry pitcher Nolan Schmitz. Burke followed with a single, and a wild serve moved the runners to second and third place.
Lauk then decided to score Hephart and Burke for a 3-0 lead.
Burke struck out nine and allowed just two strokes in the four innings he handed out.
