Woodmore 2 0 2 0 0 0 1 - 5 5 1

Edison 2 0 0 0 6 0 X - 8 10 1

The Wildcat baseball team (17-8) played #1-seed Edison even in their Div. III district semifinal game at Hedielberg University except for one big inning. Edison scored six runs on four hits and were the beneficiaries of an error, two wild pitches, a hit batter and two walks in the inning. To that point, the Wildcats had carved out a 4-2 advantage on the strength of a pair of two-run innings. Woodmore scored two runs in its first at-bat as senior Logan Fonseca singled home junior Matt Depner who had led off the game with a single. The other WHS run scored on a wild pitch. After Edison evened the score with two runs of their own in the bottom of the first, Wodmore scored two runs in the third on a Depner lead off triple and an Edison error. The
second run scord on a wild pitch. The complexion of the game changed in the fifth inning. In the top half of the frame, Woodmore had runners on second and third with one out but failed to score when a strikeout and a ground out ended the inning. Edison then scored their six runs in the bottom half of the inning, four runs coming after two were out. WHS did score one run in the seventh on a leadoff single by senior John Williams who went to second on an error in the outfield fielding his single. A ground out and a wild pitch plated the run. Depner was 2-for-4 with two runs scored while sophomore Mason Beachler, Fonseca and Williams had the other hits for the Wildcats. Junior Tristan Roth worked the first five innings striking out eight allowing eight hits and eight runs with only three of the runs earned. Senior Josh Cowell pitched one inning. Edison improved to 19-5 with the win. Edison starting pitcher Adam Wolf went the distance striking out 14.
