Tigers cruise past Hornets, 13-2

10-run second inning keeps the Tigers undefeated

 

by Ed Weaver - April 19, 2017

The North Penn-Mansfield Tigers remained undefeated on the 2017 season with a 13-2 win over rival Wellsboro on Tuesday, April 18. The Tigers used a 10-run second inning, keyed off multiple walks, to overpower their rivals.

“It’s a rivalry game. I think these guys all know each other through the community and playing different sports and their excited to compete on the baseball field as well,” said Mansfield head coach Matt Perry.

Carl Dinger and Joel Whitteker had back-to-back singles to start the inning and Derrick Herbst reached on error to load the bases. A walk by Justice Giarth scored Dinger for the game’s first run, then Dylan Wesneski singled to score both Whitteker and Herbst to make it 3-0. Giarth scored as JP Shaw drew a walk with the bases loaded to make it 4-0, a Dylan Williamson single scored Wesneski and Brendan Hill to increase the lead to 6-0.

Two more walks to by Dinger and Whitteker brought home Shaw, Nate Mahonski scored on a wild pitch to make it 8-0, Dinger scored after another Giarth walk, and Whitteker made it 10-0 on a Wesneski sacrifice fly to center.

“The guys started swinging the bats, a few balls found holes here and there and we were able to put some runs on the board,” Perry commented after the Tigers’ big second inning.

Wellsboro avoided the shutout in the top of the third with two runs. Silas Wagaman reached first on error and advanced to third on a double by Dalton Prough. A Cam Tennis single brought Wagaman home, and Prough scored as Billy Lechler hit into a fielder’s choice to make the score 10-2.

Mansfield added 3 more runs in the bottom of the fourth to close out the game. Whitteker led off with a walk and would later score. A bunt single by Kipp Hilson scored Herbst to make it 12-2, and Dewey Wise scored on a Shaw sacrifice fly to make it 13-2.

For the Tigers, Shaw was 2-for-2 with a double. Hill, Hillson, Williamson, Dinger, Whitteker, Herbst, and Wesneski all added hits, and Wesneski had 4 RBI’s.

Prough, Cam Tennis, Caleb Tennis, Lechler, Carson Davis, Brent English, and Wagaman combined for all of Wellsboro’s hits, and Prough and Wagaman had doubles.

Dinger pitched four innings for the win for the Tigers, allowing five hits and striking out two. Davis took the loss for Wellsboro, going 1 and 1/3 innings with 10 runs, four walks, and a strikeout.

The win improves the Tigers to 7-0 (5-0 NTL Large School Division), while Wellsboro falls to 3-4 (3-3 NTL Large School Division). Both teams are back in action on Thursday, April 20. The Tigers host Athens and Wellsboro travels to Wyalusing.

“Athens is a senior-laden team and they put a very competitive product on the field,” Perry said of his upcoming opponent. “I’m sure it will be a battle.”
