SIDNEY – Brock Hetzel’s two-run double gave Fremont-Mills the lead and Seth Malcom added a two-run triple to cap a six-run seventh inning and give the Knights a 7-5 win over Stanton on Friday night in the Corner Conference baseball tournament championship game.
Stanton had just scored twice on a pair of bases loaded walks in the bottom of the sixth to extend its lead to 4-1.
The Vikings were forced to take starting pitcher Donnie Weis out of the game due to the pitch limit with a runner on third base and two outs in the seventh inning in a 4-2 game. After two Carter Johnson walks loaded the bases, a throw to the plate was just late on a comeback groundball by Jake Jenkerson. Hetzel’s go-ahead hit followed.
Isaac Bateman led Fremont-Mills with three hits. Colton Hauschild pitched 3 2/3 innings of relief to earn the win.
Weis led Stanton with two hits, including an RBI single in the seventh for the final margin.
