05/13/2019 - CLASS B STATE BASEBALL: Hastings Takes Control, Holds Off Waverly

By Jeff Motz

PAPILLION---After garnering a 2-0 lead early, things went south from there for the Waverly baseball team.

The top-ranked and top-seed Vikings committed costly mistakes in the field and had inefficiencies on the base paths, as the Hastings Tigers took control to earn a 5-2 win in the Class B State Baseball Tournament winner's bracket Monday afternoon at Werner Park.

Waverly (20-6) now plays an elimination game Tuesday at 7pm at Fricke Field against Elkhorn, who ended Omaha Concordia's season Monday with an 11-0 victory.

Rhett Jordon reached on a walk, then stole third before Treyton Kozal reached on a single. Jordon then scored after Jay Adams reached on a Hastings error to put the Vikings up 1-0.

Waverly added their final run in the third, when Jay Adams singled and later scored off a single from Thatcher Kozal.

From there, Hastings sent nine batters up to face lefty Treyton Kozal and took control by rattling off four runs in the bottom of the third. Braden Kalvelage and Connor Creech each singled and scored, of RBI singles from Jacob Schroeder and Jacob Shaw. Sam Wibbels, who walked, later scored off a sac fly to right from Mason Brombaugh.

In the fourth, Justin Musgrave reached on a single and advanced on back to back hits from Kalvelage and Creech, before scoring after Schroeder was hit by a pitch.

Over the final four innings, Schroeder (Hastings' starting pitcher) limited Waverly to no runs, two hits and recording two of his four strikeouts in the game.

Connor Creech came in to relief pitch in the seventh, gave up one hit and got out of a late jam when Nolan Brown's fly ball to right was caught by Kalvelage, who threw back to second to record a double-play that put out Treyton Kozal to end the game.
