Westhill baseball coach Ted Klamm has not forgotten the 2019 B-section championship against Skaneateles, a 14-inning classic that the Warriors lost in a heartbreaking way, 4-3. After missing a baseball season in 2020, Klamm’s 2021 team did their best to retrieve any kind of revenge they could against the Lakers on Wednesday, earning a dramatic, comeback 7-5 victory in nine innings.
“I just said on the way back (home):” We lost to them in extra innings in the section final. “This certainly does not reduce the pain, but I said: ‘We can not lose to them in extras again,’ said the coach.
Wednesday’s extra exciting thriller broke Westhill’s record of 6-2 and dropped the Skaneateles mark to 7-3, but it did not start well for Klamm and the company.
Behind James mussohis 6 1/3 innings – he allowed three runs on five hits, went two and struck out 10 – the Lakers carried a 5-1 lead at the top of the sixth and a 5-2 edge into the seventh. Musso was forced to leave the mound before getting a full match due to the league-mandated lane restriction, and with the score 5-4 and with two outs and a runner on third, Tyler campbell beat a game-bound single to run in Jake zawadzki with the game binding race.
“(Tyler) had a great game,” Klamm said.
Campbell not only got the RBI clutch, but he also threw the last five laps in relief, allowing two runs and three trips, but no hits and four strikes. Michael Madigan III was the Warriors starter and went four frames, allowing three unearned races in two hits, two trips and nine strikes.
Campbell went 2-for-4 with a double and a turn. He was one of five Westhill hits that had a multi-hit game, included Nicholas haviland, which had a clear signal, two-run single on the ninth.
“We did nothing in the first place five rounds. We hit a lot and did not have many good bats, “said Klamm. “The last few rounds we played much better. We played good defense, hit the ball, drove the counter up. ”
