Woodland falls to River Ridge
The Woodland Wildcats led 5-2 through three innings Wednesday night in a home, sub-region matchup with River Ridge, but the Knights scored seven unanswered runs over the final four innings to win, 9-5.
Jacob Frye had a pair of doubles, a single, one RBI and one run scored to spark the Wildcats’ offense. Grant Robinson followed with a pair of hits and two RBI. Mitchell Taylor also collected two hits with one RBI. Brandon Allen and Adam Martin had the other Woodland hits. Cauy Williams drove in a run.
The first three hitters in the Knights’ order — Nick Blubaugh, Noah Fitzgerald, and Luke Berryhill — did the bulk of the damage for River Ridge. The three combined for eight hits and five RBI.
Mitchell Taylor (3.1 IP, 6H, 5R, 4ER, 1BB, 3K), Garrett Pope (2 IP, 4H, 1BB, 1K), and Rodolpho Romo (1.2 IP, 4H, 4R, 2ER, 3BB, 1K) each pitched for the Wildcats.
