Foxes surge past Webber

BLUFORD – Hamilton County used a big third inning to beat Webber 16-5 Thursday.

“We haven't played much defense the last couple days,” Webber coach Sam Root said. “We've had to put some people in different positions, and as a team we haven't responded well. We have to be built on pitching and defense.”

The Foxes racked up seven runs in the third inning on six hits. The runs opened up a close game and gave the Foxes an 8-1 edge. Five of the six hits for the Foxes in the inning were singles.

“(We) just kept the bases full and put them in motion, and we had a couple hits fall our way and a couple calls go our way,” Hamilton County coach Jeff Gray said. “It could have went the other way.”

Travis Stevens led the Foxes offense with two hits and four RBIs. He also started the game on the mound for Hamilton County and threw two and two thirds innings.

Gage Raudenbush had a pair of RBI groundouts for Webber. Koaltin Dye added a hit and an RBI.

After Hamilton County scratched out an opening-inning run, Webber tied the game in its half of the first. Lane Moser plated Koaltin Dye with a groundout.

Down 8-1, the Trojans tried to battle back. Ty Henderson scored on an error in the third inning to slice the deficit to 8-2. Raudenbush followed with a run-scoring groundout. With the bases loaded, Dye was hit by a pitch. Raudenbush touched home and made the score 8-4.

The Trojans couldn't get any closer and watched Hamilton County push its lead higher. In the top of the fifth, Lane Moser retired the first two Hamilton County batters, but an error kept the inning alive. The Foxes took advantage and tacked on five more runs to make the score 16-5.
