PREP BASEBALL: Three in a row

Redskins get to .500 with home win over Wawasee

GOSHEN — Deric Haynes deserved a victory and batterymate Luke Harris made sure he got it.

Haynes pitched a masterful four-hitter and Harris delivered the game-winning hit Friday as the Goshen Redskins nipped the Wawasee Warriors, 2-1, in a Northern Lakes Conference baseball outing at Phend Field.

Haynes, a junior right hander, struck out nine and walked none as the Redskins completed a three-game sweep of NLC foes this week. He retired 15 straight batters in one stretch.

Harris, a senior, ended the game by ripping a 2-1 pitch to left field with the bases loaded and one out in the bottom of the seventh inning.

Goshen had loaded the bases as Haynes reached on an infield single, senior Sylas Buller was safe on an error and senior Travis Pickard walked.

“Deric Haynes was dominant in this game,” said GHS coach Hal Farmwald. “He threw strikes all day, having command of both his fastball and off-speed pitches. He actually should have had a shutout.”

The Redskins are now 5-5 overall and 3-3 in the NLC. They host the LaPorte Slicers in a non-league doubleheader at 11 a.m. today.

Wawasee scored in the top of the first inning as junior Nate Hare reached on a two-out error, went to second on an infield hit by senior Donovan Navarro and scored on a single up the middle by senior Isaac Rigdon.

The Warriors’ only other hits were singles in the first inning by sophomore Nate Prescott and in the sixth by Navarro. Haynes struck out the last four Wawasee batters he faced.

“We actually hit the ball fairly well last week when we were losing three straight,” said Farmwald. “We just couldn’t catch a break in those games. The kids didn’t drop their heads, were focused all week and determined to get back to .500.”

The Redskins had 14 baserunners against Wawasee, yet were able to plate just the two runs.

They had at least one runner in every inning.

“The trouble was we were starting our rallies with two out,” said Farmwald. “We weren’t able to get enough leadoff batters (two) on base and then we didn’t execute in some bunting situations.”

Haynes had two hits for GHS while Buller, Pickard, Harris and senior Tyler Slagel had one each.

Slagel drove home the tying run in the fourth inning with a sacrifice fly.

That scored Pickard who had singled, stolen second and advanced to third on a wild pitch. Pickard, who would normally be in his fourth year as Redskin catcher, is relegated to designated hitter status due to a rib injury sustained in the wrestling regional.

“Harris is doing an outstanding job behind the plate and then comes through with the clutch hit,” said Farmwald.

Goshen has now scheduled a makeup game for 2 p.m. on Saturday, May 4, at Fairfield. The Redskins host Westview at 10 a.m. earlier that day.
