Orioles edge Quakers

AVON —  It took an extra inning to decide last night’s baseball game between county rivals Avon and Plainfield. The Orioles went into the top of the seventh inning with a two-run lead, but the Quakers battled back and tied it up at 5-5.

Avon went on to win the contest 6-5 in the eighth inning, showing a great deal of determination and resiliency.

“I was proud of the way we hung together and had a rally there to end the game,” Drosche said. “We stuck together and made it happen.”

Plainfield coach Jeff McKeon was also happy with the way his team battled back to tie the ballgame.

“It’s Avon, Plainfield now and it’s a fight and both teams want it and it’s a good old fashion baseball game,” McKeon said. “The guys did a great job. The kids fought.”

With a two-run lead in the top of the seventh, Plainfield’s Alec Caprarella’s leadoff double put the Quakers back in business and then Kalib Clark reached base, equaling the tying run.

Caprarella scored as Avon’s defense was put in an awkward position and a sacrifice fly by Dillon Hughes brought in Clark to tie it up.

Avon shut Plainfield down in the eighth, turning a double play to end the inning. After that, the Orioles’ offense got going as Cole Johnson singled and advanced to second on a sacrifice bunt by Khristian Reynolds. Plainfield gave Dylan Jones a free pass and a dropped third strike loaded up the bases for Matt Betustak, who drove in the winning run.

“Our problem the last few games was not getting the timely hits and tonight we did that in some key situations,” Drosche said.

Avon freshman pitcher Matt Moore had a shaky beginning and allowed two runs in the first but finished strong. Moore went seven innings, striking out six Quakers and allowed just three hits.
