Baseball’s Streak Snapped by Maple Leafs

 

 

The Bethel Pilots made the trip to Memorial Stadium in Kokomo on Friday to face the Maple Leafs of Goshen College in a single nine-inning contest. After nine full innings of action, the Maple Leafs were able to knock off BC 7-5, ending BC’s four-game win streak. The Pilots now sit at 13-7 on the season heading into a doubleheader against Goshen tomorrow.

After jumping out to an early 3-1 lead after the first frame, BC’s offense was silenced for six innings while the Maple Leafs nabbed the lead with a three-run third inning. GC stayed on the attack and plated three more in the bottom of the seventh to bury the Pilots in a four-run hole.

The Pilots came to life in the top of the eighth thanks to hits from Mike Waither and Cam Gallaway. The effort was aided by walks from Heath Brooksher and Morgan Erla. After the dust settled, BC pushed two runs across the plate, narrowing the gap to just two scores.

Still trailing by two, BC picked up timely hits from Austin Branock and Brooksher in the final frame, but the Pilots were unable to come up with a game-changing play and Goshen sealed the 7-5 victory.

BC was outhit 10 to 14 in the contest and recorded four errors to GC’s two errors. Josh King suffers the loss from the hill, tossing seven complete innings.

Bethel and Goshen will be back at it tomorrow meeting in a doubleheader on the campus of Goshen College. Game one is slated to start at 1:00 p
