Warriors Use Big 6th Inning Rally to Pull Away; Defeat Field 10-4

Beloit, OH- The West Branch Warriors welcomed the Field Falcons to town for some Saturday afternoon baseball. The game was a back and forth affair through much of the afternoon until the Warriors batted around in the 6th inning and pulled away to the non-conference victory.

The scoring got started in the bottom of the 1st when Warriors 3rd baseman Anthony Perry was hit by a pitch with the bases loaded. The Warriors would extend their lead in the 2nd with triples by Jaxon Robb and Gavin Bell. Charlie Biskup and Boston Mulinix would sacrifice each of them home to build a 3-0 lead after two.

The Falcons would get on the board in the 3rd inning when Gavin Calpp led off with a single. Grady Eader and Caden Kolesar would follow suit and Drexal McAmis would later send a sac fly to right field to cut the Warrior lead to 3-2.

West Branch would quickly answer back with one of their own in the bottom of the 3rd with Hunter Shields leading off with a single and coming around to score on a Beau Alazaus triple. McAmis would then take over on the hill for the Falcons and escape the frame with no further damage.

Field answered with a run in the top of the 4th when Carter Little led off the inning with a single. He would advance to second on an infield ground out then advance to third and home on passed balls. The run cut back into the Warrior lead 4-3.

The Warriors would add back that run in the bottom half of the 4th when Gavin Bell led off with a single. He would steal second and the throw down was on target, but there was no Falcon to catch the throw and it trickled into center field, allowing Bell to advance to 3rd. Boston Mulinix would then lift one out to center, enabling Bell to scamper in to extend the lead back to two, 5-3 after 4 innings of play.

Following a scoreless 5th, the only inning that didn't feature a run, the Falcons would cut the lead to one as Little again led off the inning with a single and Grady Eader brought him home on a single.

As the Warriors took to the plate in the bottom of the 6th, looking to answer the Falcons as they had most of the afternoon, they did that and so much more. In total, 5 Warriors came across to score, and each of the 9 came to the plate in the inning. The Falcons were able to get a double off the bat of Sam Confer, but were not able to score in the top of the 7th.

Alazuas and Aaron Tucker combined for the win on the bump, with Tucker allowing only 1 run in his 3 innings of relief work.
