On Tuesday night the Washington baseball team controlled the majority of it’s game against visiting Clear Creek Amana but in the end the Clippers found a big inning and stole a 7-4 win. Washington got on the board first in their first at bat when Elijah Wood doubled to deep center field driving in Jacob Green. In the second inning it was Green’s turn for an RBI hit, knocking in Tanner Coleman with a single. Washington went up 3-1 when Green scored for the second time on the night, this time on a rocket through the right side by Walker Breard.
Wood dazzled on the mound for the Demons in protecting the slim lead. The Washington lefty went five innings allowing just one hit while striking out 11 Clippers. The Clippers found their offensive stroke in the sixth inning against Demon relievers Michael Gier and Blake Wiedman. CCA sent 11 men to the plate in the frame pushing across five runs on three hits and two Demon errors to take their first lead of the night at 6-3. Both teams would score single runs in their final at bat to reach the final score.
Weidman took the loss for Washington in relief going two innings, allowing four hits and four runs, while walking two and striking out one. He reentered the game as a reliever after suffering a glove hand injury while playing behind the plate. Offensively Washington was led by Green’s three for four night, he scored twice and drove in one. Washington is now 1-1 on the year and will travel to Williamsburg tonight for a doubleheader.
