PREP BASEBALL: Warriors fall to Marines in quarterfinal matchup

Westview victimized by the long ball in tourney contest

EMMA — Westview’s brief run in the NECC baseball tournament is over. The Warriors dropped an 8-4 decision to visiting Hamilton Tuesday night in a quarterfinal matchup.            

Westview (7-6) spotted the Marines three first-inning runs in this one, as Hamilton sandwiched four hits around a walk to get out to the early 3-0 advantage.            

Warrior starting pitcher Jamar Weaver settled down after that, not giving up another run until an Aaron Kelly solo homer to lead off the top of the fifth.            

Westview, meanwhile, began to chip away, getting a run in the bottom of the second on an RBI double by Damon Miller. Hamilton starter Suede Schiffili balked in a run in the bottom of the fourth, and Westview clawed back to within one at 3-2.            

But from there, the wheels began to come off for Westview. Kelly’s solo shot pushed the Marines back out to a two-run advantage at 4-2 – and then the Hamilton first baseman followed that up with a three-run homer in the top of the sixth to put the Marines on top, 7-2.

Westview took advantage of a couple of Hamilton errors in the bottom of the seventh to rally with a pair of runs, but Schiffili was able to close out the Warriors and notch the complete-game victory, throwing 116 pitches on the night.

Kelly’s two-homer night — the first of his varsity career — came on the heels of another homer Monday night against West Noble.

Kelly said the solo shot came on a chamgeup, and the three-tun homer came on a fastball.

“We struggled a bit early in the sesason, so it feels good to be a part of helping us turn things around,” Kelly said. “Hopefully, we can keep it going.”

That would be fine with Marines coach Tyler Wolfe, who was pleased with his team’s night — save the hiccup in the bottom of the seventh.

“When you have a bit of a cushion like we did tonight, those things don’t hurt you as much,” Wolfe said. “But that can’t happen in a one-run game.

For Westview coach Jason Rahn, the difference in the game came down to plate discipline — or the lack thereof, in his eyes.

“We watched too many second strikes go by,” Rahn said. “We didn’t have many quality at-bats.”

Hamilton (4-5) moves on to a Friday night semifinal matchup against the Churubusco. The Eagles were a run-rule winner over Eastside in another quarterfinal game Tuesday night.                       

The Warriors advanced to the second round with a 13-8 win over Lakeland Monday night. Hamilton punched its ticket to the quarterfinals with a 10-0 run-rule victory over West Noble, also Monday night.

Westview is now idle until next Tuesday, when the Warriors will resume NECC conference play, again hosting Hamilton.
