In a close game Friday night, Security Federal edged out Doc’s Braves and made plays when they needed to. Both these teams matched up well against each other and it was not a runaway. Security Federal scored in the beginning and at the end and it was enough for the 5-0 win over Doc’s.
Security Federal led off the game with an out but quickly recovered with a big base hit from Andrew Key and out number two followed. Jaxon Grissom and Braylen Hankins each reached base and Key scored for an early 1-0 lead. Hayden Holstrom and William Markwood each singled to score Grissom and Hankins for a 3-0 first inning lead.
Doc’s Braves started its at-bat the exact same way with a lead-off out. Eli Woodlee blasted a shot for a base hit followed by the second out of the inning. Christian Dunn also had a first-inning base hit and advanced Woodlee down to second with two away. The third out came and the momentum was stopped in its tracks.
Security Federal went cold in the second and third innings. Key and Grayson each reached base but were left stranded in the second and Hankins singled in the third but was also left stranded to end those two innings scoreless.
Doc’s Braves went down in order in the second and third innings and the score remained 3-0 after three complete innings.
In the fourth, Security Federal added some insurance when Jack Rhoton led the inning off with a base hit followed with a single by Brody Womack. Hits from Key and Grayson would score Rhoton and Womack for a 5-0 lead. Hankins and Holstrom both hit into fielder’s-choice outs to end Security Federal’s streak of base hits.
Doc’s Braves had one last chance and the top of the line-up was due up. The defense was too much and they put the bat on the ball but unfortunately could not make anything happen and the side was retired in order to end the game with a final score of 5-0 in favor of Security Federal.
