The Washington Demon Baseball team took home a win last night after visiting Williamsburg.
Williamsburg is ranked No. 9 in the state with a 16-7 record, now after the loss to the Demons. Washington put up four in the first, two in the second, two in the third, scoreless in the fourth, fifth and sixth and then put up one more in the seventh to win the game 9-2.
The pitching duo of Matt Kuntz and Chris Wheeler combined for a six hit, two run game on the mound.
Head coach Nathan Miller said his team played the way his team is capable of playing, and that it is nice to see the pitching depth come around.
“We knew that as the season wore on, that would be the case to have guys step up, they just needed innings to get comfortable with,” Miller said. “That is part of pictching, that’s part of varsity sports, getting game time so that you can ease in and gain confidence, and when you have confidence you are going to play better. Both of those guys have logged some innings in, and are feeling pretty comfortable with their pitching now.”
Colin Steele had two hits, Tanner Knupp had three hits, Austin Knupp had a home run along with Jake Redlinger having a homer and T.J. Rausch went 4-4 with doubles.
The Demons will face Durant on Saturday in Washington.
