Washington broke open a tie game with four runs in the bottom of the fourth inning and never looked back in a 11-2 baseball victory over St. Clair Tuesday at Ronsick Field.

“We played pretty well against St. Clair,” said Washington Head Coach Scott Bray. “We hit the ball, which was the big thing. We also got good pitching from quite a few guys.”

The Bulldogs (6-16) scored single runs in the bottom of the first and second innings to grab a 2-0 advantage.

The Blue Jays (14-10) countered with two runs in the bottom of the second inning, four in the fourth, one in the fifth and four in the sixth.

“Washington is a very solid team. They did a great job of getting the little things accomplished,” said St. Clair Head Coach Rob Hauck. “They put the ball in play and forced us to make plays on them.”

Both teams used three pitchers in the contest.

Justin Schuler got the start for the Blue Jays and worked the first two innings. He allowed two runs, one earned, on two hits with three walks and four strikeouts.

Andrew Sumner tossed the next three innings to earn the win. He allowed no runs on one hit with no walks and five strikeouts.

Zach Pointer pitched the final two innings. He allowed no runs or hits with one walk and one strikeout.

“Justin didn’t have his best stuff, but still did a decent job,” Bray said. “Andrew and Zach came in and both threw the ball well. It was good to get a few different guys some work.”

Brenden Murphy was the Bulldogs’ starting pitcher. In three innings, he allowed two runs on three hits with one walk and two strikeouts.

Kody Halmich tossed the next two frames and suffered the loss. He allowed five runs, four earned, on four hits with two walks.

Dalton Short pitched the sixth inning. He allowed four runs, three earned, on three hits with one walk.

“Murphy gave us a great three innings. Halmich struggled early, but was able to settle in,” Hauck said. “We came in with the idea of not wearing out our pitchers for the district tournament. That allowed us the chance to give Washington different looks.”

Brock Hopkins, Jared Walde and Pete Coulter each collected two hits for Washington.

Hopkins also walked, had two RBIs and scored two runs. Walde also walked, had two RBIs and scored one run. Coulter added one RBI and one run.

Alex Monehan finished with one hit, one walk, one RBI and one run.

Derek Walters registered one hit and one walk.

Luke Hasenjaeger added one hit, one RBI and one run.

Pointer pitched in with one hit.

Phillip Straatmann had one RBI and one run. Scott Byrne scored two runs. Mike Reinhold and Brian Trigg also scored a run.

“All year, it seems like one or two guys hit and then the next day, it’s someone else,” Bray said. “We have to put it all together.”

Murphy had all three of St. Clair’s hits to go with one RBI.

Austin Gotway and Ayden Carey both walked and scored. Anna Reed walked twice.

“Offensively, we just did not show up,” Hauck said. “Murphy was the only guy who was able to get a hit.”

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.

St. Clair returns to Ronsick Field for the Class 4 District 4 Tournament. The fifth-seeded Bulldogs take on fourth-seeded Pacific Saturday at noon.
