Danville rolls over Cascade in 13-3 win

CLAYTON — Solid hitting, defense and pitching pushed Danville to the semifinals of the Hendricks County baseball tournament in a 13-3 win over Cascade Friday night.

“We talk about grinding and staying in the moment with our approach, and they did that tonight,” Danville coach Brady Armstrong said. “That’s how you win games.”

Led by Seth Tollison’s six-RBI effort, the Warriors dominated at the plate.

“When he simplifies the game, he’s really good,” Armstrong said of the sophomore. “He did a great job.”

On the mound, Daniel Dieckmann went the distance and blanked Cascade in six of seven innings.

“He’s a senior and he’s really grown,” Armstrong said. “He’s one of our leaders and really set the tone tonight.”

Cascade plated all of its runs in the second inning, and gave up 11 over the final three frames.

“We struggled throwing strikes, and there were some growing pains here tonight,” Cascade coach Jason Thompson said.

Danville (2-3) got off to a quick start, as the Warriors’ first three hitters of the game walked and Tollison and Dieckmann followed with RBI for a 2-0 lead.

Cascade (4-1) put its first three hitters on in the second inning, and Mitch Duncan drove in two and Sawyer Donovan sent another home to put the Cadets up 3-2.

The fourth inning was pivotal, as Cascade loaded the bases with nobody out and came away with no runs.

“I think they were just pressing, trying to do too much,” Thompson said. “We preach just getting the ball in play, and that was a good learning experience for them.”

Tollison and Jake Edwards drove in runs in the fifth, and Reece Jensen, Kyle Titsworth and Tollison combined for four RBI in the sixth.

The Warriors added five runs in the seventh, including a two-run single by Tollison.

Danville will face Brownsburg at 1 p.m. on Saturday, with a berth in the county championship on the line.

“We know about Brownsburg and their history, and we’re excited to have the opportunity to be there with them,” Armstrong said.
