11-run inning powers Indians

-A A +A
By Claude Lewis

The big inning can turn around things in a hurry.

For example, take the Chiefland High baseball team's March 18 game against visiting Newberry.

For three innings, young Panther lefthander Tay Ross shut down the potent Indian attack as Newberry built a three-run lead.

That was all wiped in a nightmarish fourth for Ross, as Chiefland rallied for 11 runs.

The big frame paved the way to a 13-3 Indian victory over the Panthers.

Chiefland improved to 9-1 overall and 7-0 in Class 3A District 11.

The Indians had nine hits in the decisive fourth. The Panthers helped the cause by committing five errors in that one inning.

Dan Galpin got it all started with a single. Mike Perkins followed with a single. Dan Cothron hammered a double to right-center to plate two and cut the deficit to 3-2.

Kory Hanchar picked up the beat with a single. Ory Pitts drew a walk to load up the sacks. Kyle Shivers grounder to short was thrown away, bringing in two runs to give the Indians the lead at 4-3.

Chiefland was just getting started.
