PREP BASEBALL: Raiders explode, run-rule Goshen

MIDDLEBURY — Goshen and Northridge both scored two runs in the first inning, the difference in the game was Northridge kept scoring while Goshen didn’t.

The Northridge Raiders scored 14 more runs over the next three innings on the way to a 16-2 win over the Goshen Redskins in an NLC contest Wednesday evening at Northridge.

“We hit the ball pretty well tonight,” Northridge coach Andrew Brabender said. “Tuesday was the first time we have been able to get outside for practice in awhile. Taking batting practice outside makes a big difference.”

The early two-run deficit didn’t phase the Raiders.

“We have been in that situation before,” Brabender said. “We have a good offense. We know it is going to take more than two runs to beat us.”

Junior Deric Haynes was the starting pitcher for the Redskins.

“Deric struggled with his control,” Goshen coach Hal Farmwald said. “That is something he has not been doing this year.

“Northridge has too many good hitters to get behind in the count. When he got behind Deric was having to come in with a fastball, Northridge has too many good hitters to be coming in with fastballs.”

The Redskins got two runs in the first as Haynes doubled and senior Sylas Buller followed with a walk. With two outs, senior Luke Harris doubled home Haynes and senior Tyler Slagel single home Buller.

The lead didn’t last long as the fourth Northridge batter in the bottom of the first — senor Blake Fry — ripped a two-run homer over the left field fence.

Haynes struck out the next batter and the score was tied 2-2 after the first.

The Raiders added on six runs in the second. Junior Craig Kasten had a run-scoring double, senior Austin Moniot a two RBI double, Fry an RBI double and senior Brock Logan a run-scoring single.

The Raiders kept things coming, scoring four more times in the third and the fourth. Moniot drove in a run with a single and Fry one with a grounder to short in the third. Junior Ryan Summy had a two-run single, junior Ike Rassi a run-scoring single and junior Steven Frye an RBI double in the fourth.

Senior Shannon Baker was the winning pitcher, improving his record to 4-0 on the season. He struck out four and walked two.

“Baker was a little wild and erratic, but he is a great competitor,” Brabender said. “He has a tendency to throw too many pitches. But at the end of the day his is 4-0.”

The Redskins got one more hit after the first inning. Senior Kyle Taylor reached first safely and classmate Austin Henke singled in the fourth. Taylor tried to score on Henke’s hit but was gunned down at the plated on a fine throw by Northridge’s left fielder Moniot.

We are doing some little things wrong and those little things are leading to bigger things,” Farmwald said. “Things kind of snowballed on us.

“Our kids were still battling in their at bats late in the game. We hit the ball hard at times, but it was right at someone. When Northridge hit the ball on the nose it found the gaps.”
