The Wabash 15 year old all star team went 0-3 at the state this past week.
In game one Wabash lost a 10-8 thriller to Goergetown. Down 10-1 headed for the bottom of the 7th, Wabash rallied to score 7 runs.
Edward Dilliard, Tanner Gatchel, Josh Provance, Roger Davis, Devin Hostetler, Leighton fields and Kodi Clemons scored. The game ended after batting 12 batters in the 7th. The last play of the game was a sharp hit ball in the deep hole at short by Leighton Fields with based loaded and the bang bang play went against Wabash.
In game two Wabash lost 11-0 to a very good Jeffersonville team. Wabash faced a combination of 2 Jeffersonville pitchers that no hit the Wabash squad. Devin Hostetler pitched almost the entire game, but a lot of miscues behind him didn’t help the cause. Wabash put just 3 balls in play, all outs..Provance, Hostetler and Dilliard put the ball into play for Wabash.
Game three Friday.South Bend went 14-4 over Wabash…Again was a pretty tight game with Roger Davis throwing the maximum of 95 pitches and only giving up 2 earned runs.Several miscues helped South Bend put up 7 runs in 6 innings. Wabash scored their first run in the second when Leighton Fields hit one off the top of the right center field fence doubling home Devin Hosteler. Wabash rallied again in the 4th inning. Colten Hall pinched hit for Coleman Barker and led off with a sharp base hit to open the frame followed by hits by Clemons , Gatchel, Provance and Roger Davis. In the bottom of 5th South Bend put up 6 runs. Leighton Fields came in relief of Roger Davis and South Bend’s sharp hitting helped them close on the night on our 15 year all stars. Joshua Provance came in and closed out the inning, but South bend advanced to finals to be played Saturday at Fort Wayne. The winner of the State finals will advance to Peru, Illinois for the regional World Series next week.
Coach Guy Provance ” We had a great All Star season…thanks to all the kids and parents , sponsers and Wabash Little league for letting our kids experience for many what will be once in a life time opportunity. In Senior league tournaments there is no mandatory playing rules but I was able with 12 on the roster to see that all 12 players got opportunites to play. Every player played and every player also got to set the bench. At this level our teenagers who are going to advance to play High School and hopefully continue to play Senior League baseball can see that at this level putting our best foot forward everyplay is the only way to compete on this level…When we did we were successful and when we strayed from that we played teams that really took advantage of this… ”
