Woodmore left a runner at third, needing one run to tie, in two of its final three at-bats in losing the Div. III sectional game at home to Wynford.  The game was started on Wednesday (May 8) and suspended in the bottom of the fifth with Wynford winning 2-1.  When the game was resumed today, Woodmore had a runner on third and two outs in the fifth.  Woodmore was retired on a ground out to end the threat.  After Wynford got two runners aboard in the sixth inning and failed to score, Woodmore got a runner to third base with two outs and were retired on a ground out.  After holding Wynford off the board in the top of the seventh, senior Zach Matwiejczyk reached leading off after being hit by a pitch.  But, an infield pop out, a fly out to right field and a ground out ended the game.  Woodmore had two of its four hits in the game in the first inning on Wednesday to plate their only run and tie the score.  Senior Ian Cook, who had two of the four Wildcat hits, led off with a double and senior Hunter Stevenson hit the first pitch he saw to left field for an RBI single.  Woodmore drew two walks with two outs in the second inning, but were retired on a pop out.  Woodmore had one runner aboard in the third and freshman DJ Melter singled with two outs in the fourth, but the Wildcats could not push across the equalizing run.  Cook singled to lead off the fifth inning and was eventually stranded at third when the game was resumed today.  Both teams left eight runners stranded.  Senior Derrick Berkel started on Wednesday and pitched the five innings before the suspension of play.  Berkel yielded six hits and two earned runs while striking out 11.  Senior Donovan Reyes pitched the two innings after the game was resumed today and did not allow a run on two hits while striking out one.  Wynford scored in the first inning when the first three batters all singled.  Wynford pushed across what proved to be the winning run in the third on a one-out double and then an RBI two-out double.
