Neoga holds off Dieterich 4-3 Indians win on walkoff double play

DIETERICH — Dieterich trailed by one run in the seventh inning with the bases loaded and one out, the third time in four innings the Movin' Maroons had loaded them up.

Clayton Camtpon stepped in to the box in a 4-3 game, and flared a pitch from Devin Olmstead to right field.

Initially, it looked as if it might get down, but Matt Kingery was playing slightly in and quickly flagged it down.

Cole Hartke and Trenton Poe weren't so quick, as both were caught off base, giving Kingery an easy double play at first to end the game with a 4-3 win for Neoga.

"We would have been doubled off at either base," said Dieterich coach Jamie VanScyoc. "It's routine things, if they don't go, it gives our guy at third a chance to tag and we still have another chance to win it."

Neoga led the whole way, taking a 1-0 lead after one and extending it to 3-0 by the fourth. Dieterich scrapped back to make it 3-2, before the teams traded runs late.

Jake drove in Logan Rankin in the sixth to push the lead to 4-2. Dieterich began to come back in the seventh with a leadoff single by Alex Bohnhoff, a one-out walk by Jake Bohnhoff, and a fly ball by Poe that went for an error.

With the bases loaded, Cole Hartke drew an RBI walk to cut the lead to 4-3, but Olmstead came in and forced the fly ball that would end the game, locking down a win for Guy Walk and a save for himself.

"Easiest save he'll ever get, but the hardest one he'll ever come into," said Neoga coach Zach Miller, who was filling in for Ted Kerner. "I told him 'You'll never come into a hardest spot than that, with tying run at third and the winning run at second and one out.'"
