(Monday, April 27th 2015): WAUSEON—The Indians invoked an offensive campaign against Patrick Henry at home on Monday. Wauseon, looking to maintain their solid footing in the NWOAL, began their tirade in the third inning and never looked back.
Right-handed pitcher Brady Kinnersley started off on the mound for the Indians. Kinnersley dominated throughout the game, nearly pitching a no-hitter until the 7th inning when Patrick Henry would get their one and only hit on the night.
Kinnersley led the Indians through 2-½ innings before the Wauseon offense would light up in the bottom of the 3rd, scoring three runs on Patrick Henry’s Joe Nickels. Two more runs were put on the board in the following inning to put the score at 5-0 heading into the 5th. After a full scoreless inning, the Indians drove in two more runs before claiming victory in the top of the 7th.
Sophomore Carter Bzovi amassed three RBIs with a walk and a hit in two at-bats. Peyten Shadbolt scored once in two hits while driving in two RBIs in the win. Shortstop Jeremiah Kauffman was unstoppable scoring three times on two hits and a fielder’s choice. Nate Suntken would score on a double.
Kinnersley would get the win on the night pitching 6.1 innings and throwing a total of 106 pitches, 63 of which were strikes. Senior Jacob Newlove would step in for the save throwing 18 pitches with only 1 walk in the home victory. Wauseon’s ability to get on base was key in the 7-1 victory against the Patriots.
