Wachter’s 10 Ks Lead Rout in PSAA Opener

Wachter on the hill yesterday

Yesterday afternoon, on a gorgeous 72-degree day on Jeff Adams Field, the baseball team opened its inaugural PSAA campaign with a 13-0 win over Lawrence Woodmere Academy.

T. J. Wachter took the mound for the Bears and was nothing short of dominant as he blew fastball after fastball by Tiger batters, striking out 8 of the first 9 batters he faced. Meanwhile, the offense wasted no time in lighting up the scoreboard.

Seamus Scanlon opened the bottom of the first with a walk followed by a Joe Wozny single. Scanlon advanced to third on an overthrow, then came around to score on a wild pitch. A Wachter ground out brought home Wozny for a 2-0 lead.

Small ball reigned in the bottom of the second as Jack Derco, Scanlon, and Wozny notched RBI singles followed by a Wachter ground out that yielded another run for a 7-0 advantage. The lead grew to 9-0 in the third when the Woodmere center fielder misplayed a Wachter fly ball, bringing in Malik Ulysse and Scanlon.

An Aidan Mega sacrifice fly and RBI singles from Derco, Scanlon, and Wozny provided the final margin and triggered the mercy rule, ending the game with 2 outs in the bottom of the fourth.

Wachter finished his day on the hill with 10 strikeouts, 0 walks, and 0 earned runs in 4.0 innings of work. Wozny (3 RBIs), Scanlon (2 RBIs), Derco (2 RBIs), Wachter (2 RBIs), and Mega (1 RBI) powered the offense.

The Bears are back in action on Wednesday in a home PSAA match-up with Evangel Christian.
