The Drought is Over: WSHS Baseball Team Third Round Bound­-Quarterfinals

The Winnfield Tigers welcomed the #11 seeded Springfield team last Friday to start the 2nd round of the baseball playoffs. It would be the best of 3 with the winner of the series moving on to the quarterfinals. The boys started off hot drilling the ball going up 4-1 early in the game, however this lead quickly evaporated with the tigers being spelled by countless errors that saw their lead disappear and they dropped the first game, 6-9. It was disappointing for the boys as they watched Springfield team and fans celebrate their win with a upset of the #6 ranked Tigers on their turf. The Tigers would be looking for revenge on Saturday knowing they had just beaten themselves.

However, no excuses, that’s baseball! The true test would come on the following day, Saturday, when the Tigers knew they were in a hole and were going to have to slowly dig out one game at a time. Now they were going to have to win 2 games back to back if their fantastic season was to continue. The boys knew they had to play their game and up to their ability to come out with both victories.
