Chaffee wins in 11 innings over Bears

Wednesday, April 11, 2012

GREENVILLE -- The Chaffee Red Devils improved to 11-1 with an exciting 7-1 road win over Greenville in 11 innings on Tuesday afternoon.

"It was a good game," said Chaffee coach Brian Horrell. "It was a big game with a lot of big situations. I'm proud of the way our guys battled."

The game started out in exciting fashion when the first two Chaffee hitters reached base against Greenville ace Scott Foster. The Red Devils' third hitter, Jared Walker then scorched a sinking line drive that Greenville was able to catch and turn into a triple play.

The two teams were scoreless until the fifth when Chaffee scored an unearned run. The game remained 1-0 until the bottom of the seventh when Greenville had runners on first and third with two outs and were down to their last strike. The Bears hitter fouled tipped a third strike before sending a ground ball to the Chaffee shortstop on the next pitch. The ball however took a bad hop and bounced completely over the Red Devils' infielder, tying the game.

The game remained tied until Chaffee was able to score six in the top of the 11th to put the game away.

Chaffee's Cody Payne got the win in relief, entering the game in the seventh inning for starter Alex Davie. Payne threw five innings, allowing four hits while striking out four and walking none. Davie allowed one run on four hits and one walk, striking out 10.

Foster tossed nine innings for Greenville before being removed, allowing only one unearned run on five hits and one walk, striking out nine.

Chaffee will be back in action on Thursday when they host Scott City at 4 p.m.
