Big Inning Sends Terriers Past Jacks
Westminster, Vt. — The Windsor High baseball team kept its game at Bellows Falls close for five innings yesterday before a disastrous sixth sent it tumbling to a 10-2 Marble League loss at Hadley Field.
The Bellows Falls sixth started innocently enough, with two strikeouts sandwiched around two hits, one a double by Colby Howe that made it a 4-2 game. However, the next eight Terriers reached base on four walks, four hits, a passed ball, a wild pitch and an error. The crowning blow was Mike LeBeau’s triple to right with the bases loaded.
“If it wasn’t for that one big inning,” lamented Windsor coach Don Swinyer. “But I’m pretty proud of the way we hit the ball.”
Matt Thayer, Russell Simonds and Tanner Tibbits each had two hits for the Yellowjackets (1-3). Windsor scored single runs in the first and fourth frames.
Tyson Boudro allowed six runs, four of them earned, as the visitors’ starting pitcher. He struck out four Terriers and walked four and allowed only five hits before the roof fell in when he tired.
LeBeau, who has pitched each inning of Bellows Falls’ two games, struck out nine Yellowjackets and allowed six hits. The righthanded senior whiffed 15 against Leland and Gray during his team’s opener. The Rebels visit Windsor on Wednesday.
