03/28/2014 - BASEBALL: Late Runs Seal Westside Win Over North Star

By Jeff Motz

Omaha Westside played into Lincoln North Star's hands Friday afternoon, but found a way to win in the seventh inning.

The Warriors scored three runs to distance themselves in a 4-0 victory over the Navigators in a high school baseball game at Den Hartog Field.

Westside (2-1) had a 1-0 lead entering the seventh when Mike Waldron reached on a throwing error by shortstop Brook Bolles.  Waldron's courtesy runner Paul Romero would steal second and later score on a past ball.  Alex Nielsen singled and after Christian Hagan's ground out, Luke Biggs drew a walk that set up two more runs for Westside.

North Star (0-1) could not over come the Warriors with runners on base.  In the sixth with two out, the Gators rallied to put runners on base.  CJ Cuddeford walked and pinch-hitter Kolton Larsen singled and advanced on a wild throw to first.  Cuddeford and Larsen were in scoring position, but Westside's Jake Meyers struck out Matt Baier to get out of the inning.

Scoreless through three innings, Westside's first run came in the fourth on a controversial play.  Devin Stueck singled an advanced to third off a throwing error and a sac fly.  On a pitch delivered, Stueck tried to steal home and eluded what looked like a tag made by Baier, went around and behind home plate to score.  North Star coach Lanny Bolles and other players claimed either the tag was made or Stueck went out of the base path.

Both umpire conferred with each other and the original call stood, with the Warriors scoring first.

Meyers came into relief in the top of the third inning to earn the win, going 4 and 2/3 on the mound with seven strikeouts and allowing three hits.

Bolles, who pitched the first six innings for North Star, gave up a run and struck out six Westside batters while allowing only two hits.
