WHEELERSBURG — Entering the top of the fifth trailing 4-3, the Waverly Post 142 Jr. team was in search of offense in an attempt to overcome their one-run deficit.

Their search for runs began quickly in the fifth as the Shockers plated 11 runs in the top of the frame — ultimately propelling their 15-6 road win over the Portsmouth Post 23 Jr. team.

To begin the fifth, Post 142’s first 10 batters produced a quality at-bat.

Their first four batters reached before a flyout to second base resulted in the go-ahead run scoring, then they produced another string of five-consecutive batters reaching as they built upon their lead.

Trevor Fike was one of three Shocker batters with three RBI, doing so with a pair of hits and a sac fly.

Waverly scored their first three runs on an opposite field three-run home run by Malik Diack in the top of the first.

Post 23 responded in the home half of the first when Jakob Tipton delivered a two-run home run to center field, cutting Waverly’s lead to 3-2.

Zac Roth, Rhyan Queen, and Nathaniel Berry each had an RBI for Post 23 in the contest.
