Eastwood     0 0 1  3 3 3  X- 10  14  2
The Wildcats jumped out to the early lead but Eastwood scored nine runs on 12 hits in its final three at-bats to hand Woodmore the Northern Buckeye Conference loss.  Woodmore put a crooked number on the board in the first inning with three runs.  Senior Hunter Stevenson doubles with one out and senior Mitchell Miller singled him home.  Senior Donovan Reyes then doubled to put runners at second and third. A walk loaded the bases and the second run scored on a ground out by junior Taityn Rollins.  The third run scored on an error.  The Wildcats increased their lead to 5-0 with a two-run second inning.  With two outs, Stevenson singled and Miller followed with single to move Stevenson to third.  Reyes singled in Stevenson an senior Derrick Berkel followed with an RBI single to plate Miller.  But, that would be most of the offense for the game for the Wildcats as they managed just two hits over the final five innings and got just one runner to third over the final five innings - a one-out triple from senior Zach Matwiejczyk in the sixth.  Eastwood took the lead for good in the fifth inning and tacked on three more runs in the sixth.  Miller had three hits for Woodmore while Stevenson and Reyes each had two.  Berkel started for the Wildcats and pitched into the fifth inning allowing seven runs (all earned) and nine hits.  He struck out five and walked two.  Reyes tossed the final two innings allowing five hits and three runs (all earned).

The Wildcats managed just four hits in the Northern Buckeye Conference game.  Freshman Mike Brzeczek started for Woodmore and pitched four innings allowing five runs (two earned) on four hits while striking out five and walking five.  Freshman Hunter Allen finished up going three innings and allowing three hits while striking out five.  Brzeczek, freshman DJ Melter, freshman Brendan Bosh, and sophomore Jeremy Tingley had the Wildcat hits.  Two of those hits, both singles, came in the first inning with one out, but a pop out made it two outs.   Another single loaded the bases, but the inning ended on a ground out.  Woodmore had just one runner reach second base the rest of the game.
