HAMLER – Kalida scored four at the top of the seventh to take the lead in one run.

No problem for Miller City.

Miller City just won in the seventh inning and won over Khalid with a score of 8-7 in the semi-finals of Division IV Baseball District Division IV on Tuesday at Harold Parratt’s Patrick Henry.

Miller City (16-9) advanced to the district final against Leipzig (16-7) at 5pm on Friday at Patrick Henry.

Leipzich won the first district semifinal match 2-1.

The Miller City-Kalida game was a lot of good and ugly, mixed with mistakes, wild innings and questionable base.

Kalida finished with six mistakes a day.

“It was one for memory books, no doubt,” said Miller City pitcher Caleb Niz.

Miller City coach Dusty Pester said: “It wasn’t such a good game, but it was exciting. It was up and down, but in terms of the game, it wasn’t a well-played game, I don’t believe either side.

“Most of all I appreciated in my guys that it’s hard when you give a four at the top of the seventh. It would be very easy to pack your bags and get on the bus. “

But Miller City made two runs in his seventh place and won with a score of 8-7.

Coming out alone in seventh place, Brandon Barlag of Miller City passed and finished second in the wild. Joe Deathering made a mistake at Kalida’s short stop, and Barlage scored a goal that equalized 7.

Dylan Peck doubled, and Owen Tobe was deliberately brought out to load the base with one exit.

Ethan Barlagge then strolled with the loaded bases to declare victory with a score of 8-7.

Left-handed starter Miller City Caleb Niz took the mound at the top of the seventh with a score of 6-3. But he struggled all day without his best fastball, and he got tired in the last inning.

Kalida got four in the seventh to get ahead.

With loaded bases and Kalida in the 6-4 range, Niese reached 125 pitches by the number of Miller City benches and was made per day by state regulations.

“The old pedometer here (his left hand) knew it was time to get off the mound,” Niz said with a laugh.

Thomas Weiss of Miller City took to the field and gave up the double to Jaden Smith to equalize at 6.

Drew Bass scored in the wild, putting Khalid ahead 7-6.

For the day Smith went 3 on 4 with a home run and five RBI for Khalid. Michael Horstman was 2 on 4.

In Miller City Peck went 3 on 4 with a double.

During the regular season, “Miller City” defeated “Khalid” with a score of 4-1 behind one striker Nize. Niz scored 14 in that game.

But Niese struggled from the first half on Tuesday.

“I had to throw my cool ball a lot more,” Niz said. “Kalida is a good team. I knew that if I succeeded, I would have to mix a lot. “

Kalida took the lead with a score of 1: 0 at the top of the first. Miller City came back with three in the third and led 3-1.

Khalid scored two at the top of the third and tied the score at 3.

Miller City scored three in the fifth and led 6-3.

Drew Bass distinguished himself in the third “Kalida”.

Smith made a shot to the left that hit the jet stream, and it went well through the fence of the left field for the run. This leveled the game at 3.

Leipzig 2, Patrick Henry 1

Leipzich scored two in the home sixth and brought the lead 2-0, then held Patrick Henry to victory.

“It was a great game of baseball in high school,” said Leipzig coach Darren Henry. “Serving and defense kept us in it. Luke (Spurs) probably didn’t have the best today, but he fought hard enough. “

Luke Spear picked up the victory for the Vikings. He went through 6 1/3 innings and gave up one net, earning, on seven hits. He crossed out one and passed four.

Sporus threw 98 fields, 56 on strikes.

Berman threw 89 pitches, 62 for strikes.

“Berman is good. He was fantastic, ”Henry said.

Leipzich broke away from Berman in the sixth.

Quinn Schroeder started sixth for the Vikings with a bow swing in front of the plate. He then stole another.

“It was a little trick. He does it every day in practice, and he did it himself, ”Henry said.

Blake Lifica’s RBI single put Leipsic ahead 1 – 0. Lifik took second place in the throw and moved on to third when the third throw went wild.

Ethan Zeisloft hit the liner from the pitcher mound, which bounced to short. Lifik scored on strike and became 2-0.

Spors loaded the base with one exit in the seventh before Brandt came out with relief.

Nash Mayer hit the victim in the center to get within 2-1.

Brandt forced Daniel Schmelz to end it.
