Recap

There would be no miraculous comeback for Winnetonka this time. Konnor Thompson would see to it. The Hornets poured on the jets in a 9-1 win over the District rival Griffins in the opening round of the Class 5, District 15 playoffs. Thompson would throw a complete game and the Hornets offense continued to flex their muscle in the back half of the season.

The teams traded runs to open the game in the first inning, and Northtown couldn’t solve freshman pitcher Ty Ceasar until the fourth.

Brock McLaughlin opened up the scoring with RBI singles in both the first and third innings. He would get a third RBI in the six run fourth inning to blow the game wide open after reaching on an error. Errors were plentiful for the Griffins, making six costly errors – only four of the nine runs were earned.

Offensively, Northtown’s Grant Lorenzen, Austin Creekmore, McLaughlin, and Bryan Gallen all had two hits and Casey Cayton had 2 RBI. But the night belonged to Thompson who hurled a 100-pitch complete game. After giving up a run in the first on a couple of wild pitches, Thompson settled into a groove working around a small strikezone, he pitched to contact notching only six strikeouts, but only allowing four runs after the first.

His defense also picked him up with several great plays across the diamond including a missle from Austin Creekmore to Bryan Gallen to record the final out.

The Hornets can’t rest on their laurels, however, as the intensity is turned up for tomorrow’s semi-final game with number one seed Liberty. The Blue Jays come into the game with a 21-8 record this season and will host and be the home team in the game. Grant Lorenzen will take the mound for the Hornets who look to take their winning streak to six games on Tuesday.
