Leading 2-0, Washington broke open its baseball game Wednesday against Union with five runs in both the top of the fifth and sixth innings for a 12-0 victory.

The contest at East Central College ended after six innings due to the 10-run mercy rule.

The Blue Jays (14-10) scored single runs in the top of the first and fourth innings before breaking it open.

“Early in the game, we couldn’t come up with many hits with runners on base. We didn’t put it all together until late,” said Washington Head Coach Scott Bray. “It was a good way for us to end the regular season.”

Aaron Meyer got the start on the mound for the Blue Jays and earned the win. In 4.1 innings, he allowed no runs on four hits with one walk and two strikeouts.

Brock Hopkins tossed two scoreless frames in relief. He allowed no hits with one walk and five strikeouts.

“Meyer kept them off balance and had a very good start. Hopkins came in and did a good job.” Bray said. “Our defense played OK. It was a pretty good effort all the way around.”

Ashton Dehn got the start on the mound for Union (6-8) and suffered the loss. In three innings, he allowed one run on three hits with no walks and three strikeouts.

The Blue Jays were able to get to Union relievers Trey Fink and Dillon Breeden. Keaton Groff also pitched.

“Ashton was on a pitch count so he can be ready for districts on Saturday,” said Union Head Coach Ryan Bailey. “When he left the game after three innings, the score was 1-0.”

Washington collected 11 hits by 11 different players and also drew seven walks.

Pete Coulter, Luke Hasenjaeger, Alex Monehan, Andrew Sumner, Scott Byrne, Jared Walde, Chris Becker, Sam Katzung, Kyle Summers, Derek Walters and Hopkins each had one hit.

Brian Trigg, Coulter and Hasenjaeger each scored two runs. Trigg also stole three bases.

Also scoring were Justin Schuler, Hopkins, Monehan, Becker and Pointer.

Hopkins added a walk and two RBIs. Pointer walked twice. Coulter, Byrne, Reinhold, Walde and Katzung also walked. Monehan, Becker and Sumner each had one RBI.

“A few of our kids are struggling at the plate,” Bray said. “Hopefully we’ll figure things out in the next couple of days at practice.”

Drew Juengel, Dillen Myers, Nick Schumaker, Nick Eads and Dehn each collected a hit for the Wildcats.

Schumaker also drew a pair of walks.

“We hit the ball hard, just right at fielders. We felt like we had a chance to get a win. Unfortunately, we got sloppy from the fourth inning on and the wheels came off the wagon,” Bailey said. “Our hitting and base running in the game were fine. Our pitching and defense needed to be better.”

Washington is seeded fourth for the Class 5 District 8 Tournament at Holt. The Blue Jays meet fifth-seeded Hannibal Saturday at 1 p.m. The winner plays top-seeded Francis Howell Tuesday in the semifinals.

“We know very little about Hannibal. We’re still trying to get information on them, but it’s been tough. At least they can go online and look at our stats,” Bray said. “Our kids would like the chance to play Francis Howell, but we can’t overlook Hannibal. We have to click offensively and continue to pitch and play defense.”

Union is seeded sixth for the Class 4 District 4 Tournament at Ronsick Field in Washington. The Wildcats meet third-seeded Priory Saturday at 2:30 p.m. The winner takes on second-seeded Borgia in the semifinals Monday at 7 p.m. Westminster is the top seed.
