McDERMOTT — It was a joint effort on the mound for the Valley Indians on Friday in their 7-0 win over Northwest, but it was almost a solo venture.
Indians senior Devin Wiley pitched five complete innings before surrendering a single to Austin Alley in the Mohawks’ home half of the sixth inning — the lone hit Valley’s pitching and defense would allow in their road SOC II win.
After allowing the game’s first hit, Wiley was replaced by Carter Nickel, who faced one more than the minimum in two innings of relief and helped improve the Indians overall mark to 9-6 (7-4 SOC II).
At the plate, Breckon Williams had a multi-hit day — going 2-of-4 with an RBI and a run scored.
Austin McIntosh had a bases-clearing three RBI double in the top of the fifth, giving the Indians a 6-0 lead with two outs.
George Arnett and Chase Morrow each had an RBI in the win. Hunter Edwards, Christopher Queen, Colt Buckle, Arnett, and Morrow all had a hit as part of Valley’s seven-hit effort.
Valley: 2 0 0 0 4 1 0 — 7 8 1
Northwest: 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 — 0 1 2
