Trailing 2-0 after two innings, Wabash left fielder Jake Martin (Rushville, IN/Rushville) singled through the right side of the infield with one away. Martin then raced to third when Ohio Wesleyan’s pick-off attempt was thrown away. Martin scored when Matt Wilhelm (Wabash, IN/Southwood) smacked a single up the middle to cut the lead to one.
The Bishops came up with a big inning in the bottom of the third, scoring six after Wabash could not turn a double play with the bases loaded and nobody out. Wabash mounted a rally in the eighth inning, plating a run in the inning to cut into the Bishops’ lead. Wilhelm reached base after being hit by a pitch, moved to third on a double by Frank Harmon (Avon, IN/Avon). Wilhelm scored when shortstop Matt Carlson (Crawfordsville, IN/Crawfordsville) hit a flyball to centerfield.
Wabash falls to 9-24 with the loss. The Little Giants will play their final games of the season this weekend at Mud Hollow Field. They will play host to Denison in a two-game set on Saturday, and a final nine-inning game on Sunday.
