Cardinals hold off Patoka

WOODLAWN – The Cardinals baseball team built a huge lead and held on for a 12-8 win over Patoka on Thursday.

“It's a real good win,” Woodlawn coach Mike Kehrer said. “I didn't know with the weather coming in. I'm glad we got it in.”The Cardinals jumped to a 7-1 edge after four innings and took an 11-3 edge into the sixth before Patoka closed. Woodlawn helped the Warriors with several straight miscues in the field.Down 11-3, Patoka scored four straight runs on Woodlawn errors. The Cardinals' mistakes helped Patoka close the gap to 11-7. Twice Woodlawn outfielders had fly balls pop out of their gloves.“The sky was getting pretty heavy,” Kehrer said. “I knew line drives were going to be hard to see. I hope it was a fluke.“We've been playing real good defense these last few games.”That was as close as the Warriors got.Logan Isaac led the Woodlawn offense with two hits and four RBI.Derek Kehrer added a pair of hits and two RBI. Darion Garrison finished with three hits from the No. 9 position in the lineup.Isaac helped the Cardinals build its big advantage. He knocked a two-run single in the opening inning to put the Cardinals up 2-0. He added a two-run double in the fifth to give Woodlawn its 11-3 edge.“Logan is on fire right now,” Kehrer said. “Yesterday he went 4-4. The day before that he had a couple hits. The whole middle of my lineup's doing good.”Brendan Petersen was the winning pitcher. He threw five innings and finished with five strikeouts and allowed just one walk.“Brendan's a bulldog,” Kehrer said. “He pitched for me last night.“He thew strikes, and that's all you can ask for him to do.”Garrison pitched the final two innings in relief.Woodlawn improved to 14-6 overall this season and travels to DuQuoin on Saturday.
