Two of those games were earlier in the year where they beat Fenton 13-1 and 10-0. Fenton had better plans this time. Game one was a low scoring game which featured good pitching from both sides. Today Fenton’s Eli Henderson was as good as he’s been all year pitching a complete game 3 hitter allowing 1 run on 4 hits. Fenton was able to push 3 runs across the plate getting the win 3-1. Seth Logan led the game off with a walk. He stole 2nd and with great base running stole 3rd. Logan then scored on a wild pitch to give Fenton the early lead. In the 2nd Ryan Horning led off with a double. Horning took 3rd on a ball in the dirt. Lucas Sampo then singled driving Horning in giving Fenton the 2-0 lead. In the 3rd with 1 out Logan walked again and stole 2nd. He took 3rd on a wild pitch. Howell then balked which gave Fenton a 3-0 lead and Logan’s 2nd run. Howell scored a run in the bottom of the 3rd but could not score again giving Fenton a 3-1 win.
In game two the Tiger’s started off like they did early in the season vs. Howell giving up 4 runs in the first on 3 hits and 3 errors. Fenton did settle down bringing the score to 5-3 in the 3rd but came no closer. Fenton had too many mistakes to overcome the lead but had chances leaving 6 runners on base in the game. Nate Dymond got the start for the Tigers pitching the 1st inning. Nick Temple entered in the 2nd and pitched very well for the last 3 innings allowing 1 hit, no runs, and struck out 3. Offensively Temple continued to hit the ball well going 3-3 with and RBI. Nick Clark and Ryan Horning both had hits. Clark, Austin Pedlar, and Josh Maier all had a run.
