LITTLE LEAGUE STATE TOURNAMENT: Goshen All-Stars eliminated

DUNLAP — Baseball can be the most frustrating game of all as a group of Goshen youngsters learned Wednesday.

Trailing Franklin Central of Indianapolis 4-3 midway through an Age 11 All-Star tournament game at Concord Little League, the game suddenly unraveled for Goshen’s district champions.

Franklin Central tallied three runs in the fourth inning and 10 more in the fifth to make it a 17-3 runaway and knock Goshen out of the double-elimination tournament.

Goshen, with a 5-2 record in tournament play, has been provided the opportunity to play a consolation game at 10 o’clock this morning against Terre Haute.

Running short on pitching and forced to use players at different positions, Goshen couldn’t hold off a hard-hitting and aggressive Franklin Central team. Nine errors didn’t help the cause.

Goshen scored all three of its runs in the bottom of the second inning to take a 3-1 lead. But, it was short-lived.

Porter Revoir and Mason Schrock both walked to trigger the Goshen uprising and Jocsan Sanchez singled to fill the bases.

Both Antonio Garcia and Michael Gamez reached on errors, surrounding an out on the bases, and Sanchez scored the first run.

Left-handed hitting leadoff batter Braxton Kincaid then slapped a sharp single up the middle, scoring both Jude Fitzgerald and Garcia.

Sanchez singled and Garcia doubled in the fourth inning for Goshen while Joseph Good accounted for the team’s fifth and final hit, a single in the fifth inning.

Reid Wilburn, Matt Hall and Collin Lytle each had three hits and Bryce Durm two for Franklin Central in support of winning pitcher Aiden Carlisle.

Josh Haimes, Ryan Harmelink, James Troyer and Daveyon Sandford were others playing in the tournament for Goshen. All will be either 6th of 7th graders when school starts Aug. 9.

Perry Haimes managed the Goshen club, assisted by Justin Kincaid and Erin Harmelink.

Yorktown meets Seymour and Brownsburg battles Jasper in winners’ bracket semifinals at 12:30 p.m. today. The championship game is at 10 a.m. Sunday.

Tourney Notes

Mason Schrock and Braxton Kincaid carried on family traditions of winners in Goshen Little League. Mason’s uncle, Joe Camacho, and Braxton’s father, Justin Kincaid, were teammates on a state champion Age 15 Goshen team in 1996.....High school football teams from Goshen and Franklin Central met for state championships twice in the 1980s. Running back Burt Austin led FC to a title in 1981 while quarterback Rick Mirer was the star of Goshen’s 15-0 team which trimmed the Flashes 24-10 in 1988 at the late RCA Dome.....Marlin Culp, District 14 administrator, is directing this tournament with the aid of Concord league president Brandon Roell. Tim Doyle and Jeff Wertz of Goshen are among helpers with Kerry Cripe umpire in chief.
