Urchins pick up division win against Hamilton
East Union evened its division record on Saturday, earning a win over Hamilton, 2-1.
“Huge win for us. Hamilton’s basically had our number over the last few years,” coach Chris Basil said. “They’ve had the upper hand on us the last couple of years, and they’ve had some great teams; kids that have signed and gone on to major colleges. We needed this, and this is tremendous for our kids. We needed something to get us over the hump.”
After falling 6-3 to the Lions earlier this week, the Urchins came out with the first runs, scoring in the first off an RBI single by Alex Boland and again in the second off an RBI double by Trey Barkley. After those runs, the Urchins were held to only one hit for the remainder of the game. Barkley finished with two doubles to lead the East Union offense.
Hamilton cut the lead in half in the fourth, as the Lions placed runners on the corners and Kyle Dehlem brought in the run on a fielder’s choice. Dillard held Hamilton to three hits, while striking out five in the complete game win.
Now at 13-8 (3-3), the Urchins have two more division series, first against New Site next week.
“We have New Site next week and finish with Baldwyn the next week,” Basil said. “We really need to win all four. We do that, we continue our own destiny.”
