Redskin Rally

Goshen scores 3 in bottom of sixth for upset win

GOSHEN — The unpredictability of baseball was never more evident than Wednesday at Phend Field.

The Northridge Raiders, unbeaten in Northern Lakes Conference play, were going against the host Redskins who were 0-7 the first time around the league.

The Redskins scored three runs, two without the ball being hit, in the bottom of the sixth inning and held on for a stunning 4-3 upset victory.

“We have been on the other end for some of these,” said GHS coach Hal Farmwald. “This time, a break finally went our way. Hopefully, this gives us a spark and is something to build on.”

Juniors Sylas Buller and Travis Pickard both singled with one out in the bottom of the sixth to trigger Goshen’s winning rally.

Buller scored on a single up the middle by junior Luke Harris with both Pickard and Harris advancing on an outfield error.

A wild pitch followed with Pickard scoring the tying run. When a throw from the backstop was errant, Harris hustled home with what proved to be the winning tally.

“Harris never hesitated on that play,” said Farmwald. “Instead of waiting for the wheels to fall off, we went out and made things happen in this game.”

Junior Jake Jesse received credit for the pitching victory, getting four outs and holding the Raiders scoreless. He relieved Buller, who was a solid starter, with two out in the fifth.

Senior left hander Hunter Rivera took over in the seventh and retired the Raiders in 1-2-3 fashion to ignite a Goshen celebration.

“We make some errors and they score four runs,” said NHS coach Andrew Brabender. “I felt even in pre-game practice we weren’t mentally ready for this game. It’s like we expected to just show up and win.

“We have been here before. It is a daily grind in the NLC, no matter what the records are. I thought we got solid pitching from both (junior Austin) Moniot and (senior Kyle) Yoder. Goshen’s three pitchers were outstanding.”

Pickard had three hits for Goshen including an RBI single in the first inning. Buller added a pair of singles as he and Pickard were a combined 5-for-6 in the heart of the order.

Northridge scored all three of its runs in the fifth inning after Buller had blanked them on two hits in the first four.

Senior Austin Summy doubled off the top of the fence in left field, Sam Troyer slapped an RBI single, junior Shannon Baker and senior Jordan Carithers run-scoring doubles to put the Raiders on top 3-1.

Both Summy and junior Drew Burgess had two hits to lead Northridge.

Goshen played an errorless game with senior shortstop Warren Kay and junior center fielder Austin Henke having the most sparkling plays. Summy showed good range for NHS in center field.

Friday, the Redskins travel to Warsaw and the Raiders host NorthWood.
