No. 3 LCC beats Warriors 10-0 in final
DELPHI — Winamac’s baseball team lost to No. 3-ranked Lafayette Central Catholic 10-0 in six innings Monday in the Class 2A Delphi Sectional final.
The Warriors (10-16) trailed just 1-0 going into the bottom of the fourth before the Knights broke open the game with a seven-run inning.
Dylan Hintz held the Knights in check through the first part of the game, allowing just one run on one hit in the first three innings.
“Dylan pitched exactly how I wanted him to but then he got wild in the fourth inning,” Winamac coach Don Howe said. “He walked four guys in the fourth inning and he gave up a two-run home run. We brought in J.T. [Garnett] with one out and he gave up a grand slam to make it 8-0.
“Dylan kept it low and we made the plays the first three innings. He started walking guys and got the ball up. The wind was blowing out and they can hit it.”
LCC started Hayes Cronk, who pitched a no-hitter in a sectional win over North Newton. The Warriors managed three hits on the night, a double by Jack DeGroot and singles each by Garnett and Brent Evans.
“I thought we did well,” Howe said. “We didn’t strike out until the third inning. We hit the ball. They’re fast and they can field it.”
The Winamac coach added that every game at the Delphi Sectional this year was decided by 10-run rule.
