Maroons' patience at plate gets them win

DIETERICH -- All it took for the Movin’ Maroons was a little patience.

After St. Elmo starter Levi Maxey struck out six of the first seven batters he faced, it was a Clayton Campton walk that broke down the floodgates.

Campton’s leadoff walk led to five runs for Dieterich in the third inning, which helped them cruise to a 7-1 win Tuesday.

“When we win the small battles, when we draw more walks and get guys on base that way, and tack on a few hits, we can play like this,” said Dieterich coach Jamie VanScyoc. “Our kids are going to get the results they want.”

After the Campton walk, Maxey hit ninth hitter Nick Feldhake with a pitch and Alex Bohnhoff singled to right to load the bases. Jake Bohnhoff grounded into a fielder’s choice, forcing Campton out at the plate.

But Tanner Traub’s grounder to third was mishandled and no play was made by the defense, allowing the first run to score.

Brandon Westjohn singled in two more with a roller to right, Garrett Einhorn was hit by a pitch, and runs scored on a Cole Hartke walk and a wild pitch.

For the Eagles, coming off a night win over rival Brownstown Monday where Connor Beasley set a school record for strikeouts (19), they struggled out of the gates.

“That’s always a big game for us and a big deal,” said St. Elmo coach Ryan Beccue. “We’ve got to be a little tougher minded, and play with some more life. We didn’t do a lot of bad things.”

From there, Traub went to work, allowing just one run on a looping single to Dalton Parks in the fourth inning.

He pitched into the seventh, but was pulled with two outs after giving up two singles, due to a blister issue.
