Seymour beats New London, twice
Bulldogs six-game winning streak ends
Seymour scored in the bottom of the ninth inning for its second Bay Conference victory of the week over New London.
The Thunder won 3-2 on Thursday, May 5. Each team scored a run in the first inning, with Seymour producing its second in the bottom of the third. New London tied the game 2-2 in the fifth before Seymour gained the upper hand in the second extra inning.
“While it was a very disappointing ending for us, it was a very well played game by both teams,” New London Head Coach Tom Frederick said. “I was very happy with how we pitched and played defense. Will Wohlt pitched an outstanding game. Logan Locy also pitched well in relief. We made several good plays in the field, including Kyle Wolf’s backhand play deep in the hole at shortstop.”
Frederick said a couple chances to score didn’t amount to the timely hit New London needed to win the game.
“Seymour is a good team with several good senior players,” Frederick said. “I thought our young team battled them right to the finish.”
Stat leaders: Tylan Brown 3×4, 1 RBI. Austin Hanson 1×5, 1 RBI. Austin Warren 1×4, 1 run.
Seymour 9, New London 4
NEW LONDON – Seymour shut down New London to end the Bulldogs’ six-game winning streak on May 3.
“It was a very disappointing night,” Head Coach Tom Frederick said. “We had played so well for two weeks, but not on this night. Far too many mental and physical errors to be able to compete against a good team.”
The Bulldogs produced four errors while the Thunder had one.
“Errors in baseball can be like turnovers in basketball: they can be contagious,” Frederick said. “We have to work hard not to let one error lead to another one. Hopefully we can learn from this game and not let one mistake lead to a big inning for our opponent.”
Seymour put the first runs on the scoreboard—five—in the third inning to stay ahead of New London for the whole game.
Tylan Brown, Kyle Krenke and Austin Hanson divvied up pitching duties for New London.
Stat leaders: Will Wohlt 1×3, 2 RBIs. Hanson 1×3, 1 run, 1 RBI. Brayden Kurth 2×3, 1 RBI. Brown 3×3, 1 run.
