Norse Shut Out Apaches

The #1 ranked Northfield baseball team came calling to Wabash Wednesday with the intention of widening the gap in the TRC race and Wabash needed a win to make it a race. Northfield took advantage of one big inning for a 5-0 win over the Apaches.

It was the pitchers dual that many had anticipated with Andrew Shepherd on the mound for Wabash and Ryan Keaffaber for Northfield.

It looked as though the Apaches were going to draw first blood in the bottom of the first inning. Landon Cole lead-off  with a double. Andrew Shepherd flew out to right and Cole advanced to 3rd. Shea Beauchamp was then hit by a pitch.  Jordan Floor then hit a  soft liner to Joseph Ross at first who stepped on the bag to double off Beauchamp who took off on contact to keep the game scoreless.

In the top of the third and the game still scoreless, Adam Roser connected for a 2 out single.  Tanner Chamberlain then hit an rbi double to center that was lost it in background to drive Roser home, 1-0. Andy Roser then doubled to right center, driving home Chamberlian, (2-0). Ryan Keaffaber laid down a bunt single and Roser went to 3rd.  Austin Keen then ripped a 2 rbi double to left center, making it (4-0).

Wabash was threatening in the fourth with runners on 1st and 3rd, but Keaffaber forced a fly ball to center to get out of the inning.

In the fifth Andy Roser singled when the center fielder lost the ball in background for a second time.  Ryan Keaffaber followed with an rbi double to the right-centerfield fence (5-0).

In the sixth, Wabash loaded the bases with 1 out much in part to 2 errors by Northfield. Keaffaber then struck out both pinch hitters to end the inning.

Wabash would make one more surge in the seventh. The Apaches had runners on 2nd and 3rd with 1 out created by another Northfield error and a single by Andrew Shepherd to right.  Keaffaber got Beauchamp to ground back to the mound on a check swing and then struck out Jordan Floor to end the game.
