Chargers sweep long night in Fairfield

(Continued)

Fairfield tied the game in the third. Hietpas’ second hit, a double, led off the inning. He would score later on a sacrifice fly.

Some of the small things in a game caused problems for Chariton in the opener. A base-running miscue, not getting the ball down on the bunt and committing errors kept the visitors from taking control.

”We are still a work in progress as far as tightening up some of these fundamental parts of the game,” said Chariton coach Jake Schroeder.

Hietpas again led off an inning with a hit in the fifth. He would score on a double by Josh Dimmitt for a 2-1Trojan lead.

Chariton took the lead back with two sixth-inning runs. Austin Ritenour and Lucas Heaverlo singled and both would come around to score on a two-out, two-RBI double by Baughman.

Braida would work through another Chariton error in the sixth and he would leave after six with a 3-2 lead.

”I was ready for the start and I thought it was pretty good,” said Braida. “I thought my curve ball was my best pitch.”

”Gritty — he really battled,” added Schroeder.

Fairfield’s defense came up big in the top of the seventh. Josh Dimmitt threw a runner out stealing and a big throw from Spencer Peterman in left — cut down a runner at the plate.

Baughman came in to relieve in the seventh. Hietpas’ double, an Ellis single and Josh Dimmitt’s sacrifice fly tied it at three and sent the game to extra innings.

Gaumer retired the Chargers in order in the eighth but Baughman had to strand two Trojan base-runners to get out of the inning. Baughman delivered the game winner, when he led off the ninth with his home run to left.

”I’ve been on a hot streak lately,” said Baughman. “I think I focus more at the plate when I’m in the closer situation.”
