Dieterich defense fuels 3-2 win over Newton

DIETERICH -- Through six innings of action, Dieterich starter Jake Bohnhoff had limited visiting Newton to two hits and kept the Eagles off the scoreboard for a 3-0 Movin' Maroons lead.

Newton responded in the seventh with two outs and its back to the wall, ripping three straight singles to load the bags. After a Tanner Shull single plated two, Nick Reis came to the plate with runners on the corners and a chance to end the game.Reis swung at the first pitch and sent one deep to the outfield, where a sliding catch by Dieterich center fielder Chris Lidy halted the comeback attempt and preserved a 3-2 victory."We had two outs and we scored two runs, about had a ball drop," Newton coach Jason Fulton said. "We were about three inches away from taking the lead."Tyler Rice started the rally with a single down the third base line, and Caleb Chesnut took Bohnhoff to the exact same spot one batter later. Following an infield single from Derek Schackmann, Shull stepped into the batter's box and ripped one to right field that made it a one-run deficit and forced Dieterich coach Jamie VanScyoc into a mound visit."We got the first two outs pretty quickly," he said. "I told Jake, 'Things are going to happen, we can't panic.' They kept their composure, and it was a close play at the end, but we made the plays whenever we needed to make them."Leading 2-0 for most of the game, the Maroons scored what would turn out to be the winning run in the sixth. Trenton Poe reached first base on a walk, then advanced to second off a single from Clayton Campton. Alex Bohnhoff took Chesnut deep to right field in the ensuing at bat, allowing Poe to reach home and put Dieterich ahead 3-0."Guys really stepped up today, that was a big base hit by (Alex) Bohnhoff to the right side in the sixth to tack on a third run," VanScyoc said. Jake Bohnhoff pitched a complete game for the Maroons, finishing with six hits and four strikeouts. Bohnhoff hit one batter and walked another, picking up the win with his steady performance."I was really pleased with Jake," VanScyoc said. "He's not a pitcher that's going to overpower anyone, strike out a lot of kids. He trusts the guys playing behind him and throws a lot of strikes."Chesnut also pitched a complete game for the Eagles, improving as the game wore on. He ended the day with two strikeouts and six hits, three of which came in the first inning."Caleb was fantastic today and we needed that," Fulton said. "It was a tough day to pitch. Cold, nasty, but by far the best I've ever seen him pitch." Dieterich plated its first two runs early in the game when Jake Bohnhoff laid down a bunt single and Tanner Traub singled up the gut to get his teammate in scoring position.Brandon Westjohn advanced the runners with a sacrifice fly, before Garrett Einhorn laid into a pitch that sailed into the outfield for a double that put a pair of runs on the scoreboard."We've had guys step up in different situations this year and Garrett has been one of those guys," VanScyoc said. "He comes up and rips a line shot to left center to plate two runs right off the bat. It helped Jake out a lot, he was able to just go out and pitch with a two-run-lead."The win improved Dieterich's record to 3-3 on the season, and the Maroons are back in action on Monday at Windsor/Stew-Stras.Newton fell to 1-8 despite playing one of its most complete games of the season. The Eagles return to the diamond Monday at Oblong.

    Newton Post 120 didn’t let a 4-1 deficit get to them against Highland Post 439, using a patient approach in the face of an elimination game.
    Three bases-loaded walks in the bottom of the third tied the game at 4-4, and with the bases loaded down 5-4 in the fourth, Tim Weber broke the game open with a two-run double and an error.
