After two tough losses the Bellwood-Antis Blue Devil Baseball team redeemed itself , getting  its baseball mojo back in an 8-3 victory over the Claysburg-Kimmel Bulldogs last night in Claysburg.

The Blue Devils record is now 9-2.

Sawyer Kline’s three-run homer broke open  a close game and gave Bellwood-Antis an advantage to rush past the Bulldogs.

Sawyer wasn’t really sure what to say about his homer.

“I was just happy to be there for the team, especially since in the last two games we lost.  I think any big hit can change the momentum and help us get on a roll for the rest of the season,” he said.

In the first inning the Blue Devils were down by one with a score of 2-1. The Blue Devils tied the game in the second inning.

The Blue Devils then took the lead in the fifth inning, scored three runs from Kline’s homer in the sixth inning, and added another run in the final inning.

“It’s important to win ICC games, because we have a lot of goals.  The ICC games are most important.  They help us reach our goal of winning the conference,” said Kline.

The Blue Devils got two RBI’s from Chris Wertman and three hits and an RBI from Chad Luensmann.  They also had two hits each from Joey Padula, Zack Mock, and Trenton Creppage.

Kline had 3 RBI’s alongside his home run.

Randy Zitterbart hit a triple and Noah Burns hit a double.

Cory Parson was the winning pitcher.  He had 6 strikeouts and Luensmann had 4 strikeouts to register the save.

“I think we played pretty well,” said Kline. “I think we’re getting better and better as the season goes on.  We are able to work out any mistakes we make.”
