Woodlawn tops Odin


The Cardinals baseball team powered past Odin 9-4 Wednesday.

Woodlawn jumped out to a quick start offensively, scoring seven times in the opening two innings. The scoring outburst answered a pair of tallies from Odin in the first frame.

Our bats came alive,” Woodlawn coach Mike Kehrer said. “The last few games we've been hitting the ball pretty good the last few games. Today wasn't any different, we jumped out on them.”

The top of the Woodlawn lineup helped fuel the attack early. Jayson Hapeman led off the first inning with a double for Woodlawn. Derek Kehrer knocked him in to cut Odin's lead to 2-1. Bryson Sanders tied the game when after he reached on a walk and came around to score on an error.

Woodlawn broke the game open in the second, scoring four times. Joel Robinson provided a two-run single in the inning to help the Cardinals' cause.

That's helping us out, and the bottom of our lineup they're not weak at all,” Kehrer said. “They'll put the ball in play. We have very few strikeouts anymore, which that's what we want. I think we're hitting our stride right at the right time.”

Odin closed the gap and cut Woodlawn's advantage down to 7-4 before Woodlawn tacked on two more scores late in the game.

(Odin) has improved greatly, Odin has over the last year,” Kehrer said. “They're a good opponent. I think we did a good job today.”

In the bottom of the fifth inning, Woodlawn struck again. Woodlawn scored a run after an Odin error to pull ahead 8-4. Zach Ashby followed with an RBI single to score Woodlawn's final run.

Dylan Smith threw five innings for the victory and finished with six strikeouts.

He keeps the other team off balance,” Kehrer said. “He doesn't throw real hard, but he throws strikes. We're going to pitch to contract, and we have to make plays.”

Jeremiah Lyday pitched the final two innings and fanned three batters.

Dylan threw well. Jeremiah came in and shut them down,” Kehrer said.

Woodlawn is 12-12 overall this season and travels to Patoka today.
