Baseball roundup: Rockwall-Heath wins on 10-run rule
WHITEHOUSE — Catcher Jake Bledsoe was 4-for-5 with a home run as Rockwall-Heath dominated Whitehouse, 15-5, in Game 1 of a best-of-3 Class 4A Region II semifinal series.
Whitehouse scored all five of its runs in the bottom of the sixth inning, but the game ended after the inning because of the 10-run rule.
Jovan Hernandez pitched a complete game to get the win. The only trouble Hernandez faced came in the bottom of the sixth when he walked three and allowed three hits.
Heath scored in every inning and chased Whitehouse starter Patrick Mahomes in the top of the second inning after a leadoff walk. The team’s biggest inning was a six-run sixth.
Bret Boswell led Heath with three RBIs. Jake Baxter, Timbo Duncan, Clayton Rasberry and Bledsoe each had two RBIs, and Jake Thompson matched Bledsoe with a home run.
Waco Midway 6, Denton Ryan 3: Despite a late surge, Denton Ryan was unable to erase an early deficit and lost to Waco Midway in Game 1 of a best-of-3 Class 4A Region I semifinals series in Midlothian.
Game 2 is 7 p.m. Friday at Midlothian.
Midway (27-10) scored all of its runs in the first four innings, opening up a 6-1 lead. Ryan totaled four hits off Midway starting pitcher Logan Anderson (8-1).
After Hunter Whitlock belted a two-run home run in the fifth inning to cut the deficit to three, Ryan (24-11) loaded the bases with one out in the sixth.
But Midway’s Chase Wommack relieved Anderson and picked up the final two outs of the inning. Wommack retired the top three batters in Ryan’s lineup in the seventh for his first save of the season.
Chris McKeehan (11-2) picked up the loss for the Raiders. Midway shortstop Kramer Robertson, who has orally committed to LSU, batted 2-for-4. Ryan was led by Whitlock, who was 2-for-4 at the plate with two RBIs.
