5-run 7th for BHS puts away feisty Astros


LEES CREEK — Drey Dees and Matt Adkins combined for 14 strikeouts and Blanchester put the game away with a big seventh, stopping East Clinton 9-2 Monday on the EC diamond.

The Wildcats are 4-2 overall and 2-1 in the SBAAC National Division. East Clinton drops to 0-6, 0-2.

”My only two complaints is it took way too long to get the big frame we got in the seventh,” BHS manager Aaron Lawson said of his team’s five-run outburst. “We should have had two or three of those. We also got picked off three times. I love being aggressive on the bases, but there is such a thing as being over aggressive.”

Dees started and pitched three innings with eight strikeouts then Adkins followed with four innings of six-strikeout ball to get the win.

”Two great pitching performances from Drey and Matt,” Lawson said. “Getting out of a huge two runners on, no out jam in the fourth. Our strike percentage was over 60 percentage and we had no fielding errors. That is a recipe for a lot of wins.”

Bryce Sipple drove in three runs for Blanchester.
