East Ham tops Red Bank in battle of 6-AA unbeatens

Posted: Updated:

RED BANK, Tenn. (WRCB) -- East Hamilton mustered just three hits but took advantage of four Red Bank errors and a seventh-inning wild pitch to beat the host Lions 6-5 in a battle of District 6-AA unbeatens Monday evening.

The loss keeps the Hurricanes (9-6, 7-0 in 6-AA) tied with Central atop the standings. The Purple Pounders beat East Ridge 14-9 to stay unbeaten in district play.

Hunter Owens delivered an RBI-double in the sixth to tie the game at 4-all, then later scored on a wild pitch to give East Hamilton the lead.

Gage Winton pulled Red Bank back to even when he scored on a throwing error in the bottom half of the inning, but Ben Brown's wild pitch in the top of the seventh allowed the Hurricanes to score the game's winning run.

Matt Milita's infield single in the sixth and Tyler Waters' RBI-single in the first proved to be East Hamilton's only other hits outside of Owens' double.

D.J. Hale had three hits to lead Red Bank's nine-hit effort, while Winton and Johnny Goodman added run-scoring singles. Hagan Wilkey started Red Bank's scoring with a sacrifice fly in the first.

Matt Henshaw earned the win, scattering eight hits and striking out six while giving up five runs in six innings. Brown was saddled with the loss.

Wilkey started and lasted through the sixth for Red Bank. The Lions' ace walked five, struck out six and allowed five runs.

Red Bank has its shot at revenge when the two rivals meet again Tuesday night at 7 p.m. ET at Chattanooga State.
