Bulldogs rally past Orioles for county crown

BROWNSBURG —  

Rivalry games take on a completely different meaning when it comes to Avon and Brownsburg. Wednesday night’s Hendricks County Championship game exemplifies the heated battle that always comes when these two teams meet on the field, court, or in this case, diamond.

For a game this early in the young season, the excitement level was palpable and in the end it was Brownsburg that reclaimed the county crown from Avon with an 11-9 victory.

“I thought … we battled pretty well,” Brownsburg coach Eric Mattingly said. “We got down in the third, fourth and fifth inning and we stayed with it with our bats and what we know. Eventually things started falling our way.”

Brownsburg led 2-0 after the first as Isaac Sampen’s single RBI scored Jeremy Jones from third base. With the bases loaded, Avon pitcher Brandon Watkins walked in Sampen for the Bulldog’s second run.

Neither team scored in the second, but then Avon’s bats came alive in the top of the third. A Jerry Stephen’s single and a Brownsburg error got Khristian Reynolds on base and with two outs, Orioles’ catcher Dylan Jones belted a three-run homer, putting Avon up 3-2.

“Dylan is a great hitter and a great player,” Avon coach Troy Drosche said. “He is just a big part of our offense.”

Brownsburg answered on the bottom half of the third as Bobby Carr scored from third on a passed ball to tie the game.

Avon went up 4-3 in the fourth with an RBI double from Tasker Strobel.

The Bulldogs failed to answer in the bottom of the side and Avon went on the offensive during the top of the fifth, taking a commanding 7-3 advantage. Brownsburg pitcher Sam Sampen relieved Mycah Whetstone after one inning and a walk to begin the fifth, immediately giving up a single to Avon’s Caleb Coy and putting two Orioles on base. A single from Justin Dunham scored one run and a double from Cole Johnson brought home two more and Avon looked to be in control of the game.
