The Dayton Broncos (7-0) spotted the Hardin-Jefferson Hawks (1-6) three first inning runs before roaring back for an 8-5 win in the opening game of a twi-night doubleheader on Saturday night in Dayton. Brad Sowell threw six gutty innings of baseball pitching in and out of trouble in the third, fifth and sixth innings before giving way to reliever Tim Wehmeyer who collected his third save of the season. Catcher Kevin Roe delivered the game winner with an rbi single in the second helping Dayton remain undefeated moving into district play on Tuesday night in New Caney.
After scoring three times in the opening frame against Sowell, the Hawks mustered just two runs in the final six frames. Meanwhile the Broncos capitalized on timely hitting and H-J mistakes time and again. Lead-off hitter Tim Wehmeyer opened the home half of the first with a walk, advanced to second on a wild pitch and scored two batters later on a rip to the centerfield gap by Connor Green. Rbi’s by designated hitter Jordan Trahan, Tristan Baughman, Blake Schmidt and Josh Eckerman rounded out the Broncos five run first.
Hardin-Jefferson got a run back with Logan Thompson’s two out rbi single in the fifth.
Dayton got to H-J reliever Nance Marsh in the home half of the fifth. Rbi hits by Austin Riche and Sowell added insurance runs in the Broncos 8-5 win.
In the nightcap, the Broncos scored seven times in the first three innings and Jerry Maddox struck out 14 hitters in six strong innings of work to post the win. H-J stater Taylor Reynolds took the loss.
