Apaches Split With Eastbrook-Suffer First Loss

The Wabash Apache baseball team split a pair of games with Eastbrook Saturday, winning game one of the double header 11-2 before falling for their first loss of the season, 8-2 in game two.

In game one the Apaches did all their damage in two innings.

Wabash would go up quick, scoring 4 runs in the bottom of the first. Landon Cole doubled to get things going and was followed by a Kyle Kelsheimer walk. Shea Beauchamp would then single home Cole for a 1-0 lead. Isaiah Smith would then single home the second run. The Apaches would score two more on Eastbrook mishaps to lead 4-0.

Leading 4-2 going to the bottom of the 4th, Wabash would erupt for 7 runs. Justin Holley walked, followed by Roger Davis bunting and reaching on an error. Kodi Fuller then walked to load the bases. Tyler Brewer would then get an rbi with a walk to make it 5-2 before Cole singled home a run. Up 6-2, Kyle Kelsheimer would single in two and was followed by a Shea Beauchamp rbi single, making it 9-2. The Apaches again would take advantage of a Panther error, scoring two more runs in route to a 11-2 win.

The Apaches had 10 hits in the game with Cole, Holley and Beauchamp collecting two each. Davis, Smith, Kelsheimer and Brewer each had a hit.

Roger Davis picked up the win for Wabash, going five innings, striking out 4 and walking 2. Isaiah Smith pitched two innings of shut out relief.

Perhaps the biggest news of the game was Shea Beauchamp reaching base for the 22nd time in a row. Beauchamp had reached base in every at bat of the season.

Wabash suffered their first loss of the season in game two, falling 8-2.

The Apache bats, which had been on fire the entire season, went cold collecting just 6 hits. After scoring one in the first, Eastbrook did something no one else has been able to do all year in getting Shea Beauchamp out.

Down 6-0, Wabash would finally score in the 5th, plating one run on the 5th and 6th in the 8-2 loss.

Shea Beauchamp, Landon Cole, Jared Clark, Isiah Smith, Grant Sailors and Kyle Kelsheimer each had one hit. Smith had the lone extra base hit with a double.

Grant Sailors took the loss on the mound with Devin Hostetler and Leighton Fields pitching in relief.
