PREP BASEBALL: Redskins falter late in home loss to Knights

Mishawaka Marian breaks open a close game with six runs in last three innings

GOSHEN — The numbers didn’t add up Thursday for Goshen High School’s baseball team.

Redskin batters managed just three hits and the pitchers walked nine in an 8-1 loss to undefeated Mishawaka Marian at Phend Field.

It was actually a very tidy contest until Marian broke loose for six runs in the last three innings.

“I was disappointed in those last three innings,” said GHS coach Hal Farmwald. “Our relief pitchers have to throw strikes. They got behind about every hitter.

“We had only one error in the game, but it cost us two runs. It seems that’s the way it has gone for us. Offensively, we were simply shut down by their three pitchers.”

Junior right hander Tyler Slagel started on the mound for the Redskins. He held the Knights to two tallies in the first four innings.

“I thought Tyler pitched very well for his first varsity start. He kept a very good hitting team off balance for the most part.”

Goshen took a 1-0 lead in the third inning when senior Zach Abney and sophomore Jorge Pizana drew walks and junior Austin Henke singled to load the bases. Abney scored on a bad-hop single by senior Warren Kay.

The only other Redskin hit was an infield single in the fourth by junior Travis Pickard.

Marian, a state runnerup in Class 3A last spring, is now 7-0 this season and has won 45 of its last 56 games overall.

Tim Prister, coach of the Knights, said, “Our pitching staff is fairly deep, but this early in the season we still want to limit their innings. We mapped it out to use three pitchers in this game and they all did a good job.”

Marian returns home today for a Northern Indiana Conference showdown with Elkhart Central, also unbeaten.

“Goshen was a trap game for us,” said Prister. “I was concerned because it was tucked in between a couple conference games. But, I was happy with the focus and effort our kids showed. They have big expectations for themselves.”

Senior Matt Hammond had two RBI for the Knights and senior Andrew Price a double which hit the top of the fence in left field.

Price pitched the first three innings for Marian, sophomore Reed Lewis the next three and senior Charlie Creighton the seventh.

Goshen, 4-4, plays an 11 a.m. doubleheader Saturday at LaPorte and opens Northern Lakes Conference play Monday at 5:15 p.m. against Northridge at Coveleski Stadium in South Bend.
