It looked like it might be a slug fest at Wabash Monday as the Apaches and Manchester Squires each scored two runs in the first inning before going scoreless the remainder of the game until the seventh when the Squires would plate a run and hang on for a 3-2 win over the Apaches.
In the top of the first Grant Strobel led off the game with a single and was followed by a Mason Meyer single. Kaleb Fluke would then single home Strobel for a 1-0 lead. Hayes Sturtsman would then fly out to deep left with Meyer tagging and scoring for a 2-0 lead. Wabash would even the score in the bottom of the inning when Robert Irgang led off with a single. Irgang would take second on a botched pick off attempt at first. With one out Kallen Kelsheimer would single to center, putting runners on the corners before Kelsheimer stole second. Clayton Floor would follow with a single that scored both runners to make it 2-2.
The game would go to the seventh still 2-2 when the Squires would plate a run in the top of the inning. With one out Meyer would single and was followed by a Fluke single. Sturtsman would follow with a single to center with Meyer racing home for the 3-2 lead. The Apaches would turn a double play to get out of the jam. Wabash would get a two out single from Reece Samons in the bottom of the seventh, but couldn’t punch a run across in the Manchester 3-2 win.
