Pitching dominance.
The Wapakoneta Redskins used another dominant performance from a senior hurler to improve to 2-0 on the young 2018 season.
Wapakoneta senior pitcher Joel Roediger surrendered only one questionable hit with two outs in the fifth inning of a 15-1 victory over the Perry Commodores.
“I don’t know if that was a hit or an error. Manny (Vorhees) will say he bobbled it and being the team player that he is, but I don’t know,” said Wapakoneta coach Jason Brandt, who remarked the coaches discussed if there was any trouble with the transfer. “It is what it is. Whether it is a no-hitter or a one-hitter, it was still a good outing for our pitcher. I am sure we will debate it all night and we might say it is a no-hitter and Perry will say it is a hit.
“It doesn’t really matter in my book, Joel threw the ball well for most of the game,” he said. “He was working ahead of the count most of the day and he hit 90 six different times. It was pretty impressive on a call day early in the season.”
Wapak improves to 2-0 and nearly had two no-hitters to start the season. Senior shortstop Manny Vorhees threw a perfect game in the season opener against Delphos St. Johns on March 27.
Perry fell to 0-1 on the season.
