The Bellwood-Antis Blue Devil baseball team scored four runs in the end of the seventh inning to achieve a 5-4 win over the West Branch Warriors last night at home.

Trenton Creppage had a game- winning RBI single that scored Mock.  Zach Mock started the runs when he hit a bases- loaded single.

The Blue Devils didn’t start out too hot, but they made a huge come back.  They were down 3-0 until the fifth inning.  They scored one run in the fifth inning and then their four runs to get the win making the 5-4 final score.

“We started out slow until the 6th inning and the bats finally came out.  It was awesome to battle back,” said Creppage

Chad Luensmann knocked in another with an infield hit.  Luensmann had two hits, tossed a five hitter, struck out nine and walked for one.  He was the winning picture.

Randy Zitterbart had two hits and hit a triple.

Noah Burns hit a triple.

Creppage thinks it’s important for the team to win.

“It is very important because we are competing for a District 6 Championship,” he said.

The Blue Devils had five RBI’s: 2 from Mock one from Luensmann, Creppage, and Zitterbart.

“Everyone has errors and that’s baseball, but for us to win the District 6 title we need to limit the errors,” said Creppage.

The Devils’ record is now 10-2.

Creppage gave some advice for the team. He said, “We need to take it more seriously at practice and be focused a lot more.”
