Peyton Hagerman threw seven innings of one hit one run ball for the Timberwolves while striking out 14 batters in a vir- tually unhittable performance. Hagerman walked the first batter he faced, and a double that was the only Hagerman hit he allowed, set up the Hill- toppers with second and third with no outs. A fielder's choice brofight home the game's first run and the Hilltoppers took the early 1-0 lead. Bethany's head coach talked about-facing Mt Pulaski's ace... (Michael Lowery)... ...and the pressure to try and generate offense early in the con- test... "Their pitcher is a first team all-state player. We knew we would see him, because it was their first game, and we knew we would have our hands full. Anytime we got a guy on third and their pitcher is throw- ing 90mph we are going to try to squeeze. It didn't work out, but we have to try some bunts and small ball when you are facing a kid like that." The score would remain 1-0 in the Hilltoppers' advantage until the bottom of the fourth when the Timberwolves were finally able to break through. A hit batter with one out put a man on before a Hagerman RBI double tied the game at 1-1. A throwivg error allowed an advance to third. The ball was put into play with one out to drive home what would be the winning run. Timberwolves were ahead 2-1 heading to the fifth. The only real Hilltopper threat came with one out in the top of the sixth when a routine ground ball resulted in a throw- ing error. A Timberwolves freshman catcher got down to first, backed up a throw, and ended up throwing out a Hill- topper as he tried to advance to second. It was a play that fired up the Timberwolves' team.
