A-Sun: Hatters Forget Thinking Caps
By Bryan App - May 25, 2007
That was easily the ugliest inning of baseball yet at this season's A-Sun Tournament. Stetson committed three errors and Hatters starter Justin Dechert walked two of the first three batters and had two wild pitches, as Belmont took a 4-0 lead in the first inning.
Belmont's Matt Reynolds drew a lead-off walk and advanced to second on a sacrifice bunt. Wilson Tucker then walked to put runners on first and second. Then in one of the odder plays of the tournament, Ben Petsch struck out put took off toward first base, which was occupied. Even though Petsch was out despite the dropped third strike, Stetson catcher Mark Rood threw down to first and the ball bounced off Petsch and into the infield, allowing Reynolds to score.
Tucker, Derek Wiley and Kane Simmons (RBI single) all scored in the inning.
