Henderson hurls one-hitter

BLUFORD – Ty Henderson left Sandoval swinging at air Tuesday.

The Webber hurler fanned 18 hitters in the Trojans 6-0 win. Sandoval finished with one hit against Henderson. The hit came with the opening batter of the game.

“You always have to try to throw first-pitch strikes, and that's mainly what I try to do,” Henderson said. “That first batter, he got me, other than that I did pretty good.”

Henderson baffled Sandoval hitters throughout the game. He struck out the side in the second and fifth innings.

“He's a great pitcher. He has great control,” Webber coach Ryan Strine said. “We can always count on him, any big game. Every time, time in, time out his precision and control that's what keeps them swinging at air.”

Four Sandoval batters put the ball in play against Webber and Henderson. The only ball that left the infield came on the opening-inning hit.

Levi Aydt helped Henderson in the third inning. After a walk, Aydt fielded a two-out grounder deep in the hole at short stop. He set himself and fired a throw across the diamond to Koaltin Dye to end the inning.

“He's come a long way,” Henderson said. “I can trust him the most out of everybody on the field to make a play in a big spot. He made that play, and it saved a run or two.”

Webber's offense took advantage of several Sandoval mistakes. Webber's first run was forced in on a balk. Levi Aydt scored on a passed ball, and Henderson came across on another balk in the fifth to make the score 3-0.

The Trojans tacked on three more runs in the sixth for a comfortable lead.

With two outs, Logan Ganieany, Henderson and Alex Lynn delivered consecutive singles. The hit barrage led to a 6-0 edge.

“They stayed aggressive, kept hitting the ball, and that's what happens,” Strine said. “We scored a few more runs in the sixth. That was big.”

Henderson led the offense with two hits, two walks and an RBI. Lynn added a pair of hits and an RBI.

Webber is 8-3 this season and travels to Patoka today.
