Hawks waste Woodall’s effort, fall to Tigerhawks, 6-5

COLFAX – Trey Woodall trotted up the hill in a jam with two outs in the first inning and then proceeded to pitch the best game of the season for the South Hamilton baseball team here last night.

He should have been rewarded. He wasn’t.

Colfax-Mingo scored five runs off Hawks’ starter Nathan McSparin in the first inning before Woodall took over and shut down the Tigerhawks for the better part of the night.

But a South Hamilton error in the seventh led to Colfax-Mingo (1-5, 1-4 HOIC) plating the winning run in a 6-5 victory.

“Trey did phenomenal on the mound,” South Hamilton head coach Bret Bell said. “He really stepped up and got us out of a jam in that first inning and they really didn’t threaten again until the seventh inning.”

Woodall issued just two hits over 6 1/3 innings of work. He walked five and struck out four.

South Hamilton (1-6, 0-4 HOIC) recorded six hits. Rylan Harris and Colton Griffin both went 2-for-2 with two RBIs. JD Rader added a base hit and RBI. Landon Quam went 1-for-3.

The Hawks will be at home Friday night against Greene County.
