Multiple Teams · Bears win battle with Wes-Del; Co-MEC leaders at 4-1


Monroe Central improved to 4-1 in the Mid-Eastern Conference Thursday evening with an 8-4 victory at Wes-Del in the host school’s first Strike Out Cancer game.

 

Wes-Del sold T-shirts, concessions, wrist bands and held a raffle with all proceeds going to the Relay For Life, which helped put together the event. The Strike Out Cancer game against Monroe Central was picked at the beginning of the year because they knew it was a conference game which could bring out a large crowd, and it was a game that would stay at home. The players received their own shirts and wristbands.

The Bears (10-4) took a 2-0 lead before Wes-Del tied it up after 2 innings. A home run crushed over the right field fence from Monroe Central’s Nakya Brown in the top of the third put the Bears up for good. Brown finished 3-for-4 with a home run and a double, knocking in another run in the sixth inning.

Leading 6-3, the Bears added a pair of runs in the sixth to put the game away.

Wyatt Snyder was 2-for-4 with 2 runs and 1 RBI, Beau Combs singled, scored twice and stole 4 bases, and Logan Conklin had an RBI single, scored, and stole 2 bases.

Derek Goodman doubled, Casey Conatser had an RBI single, and Brady Jones singled and scored.

Sophomore Tucker Young started and allowed 4 hits, 3 earned runs and fanned 2 in 3 innings. Senior Tyler Bunner threw the final 4 innings allowing 1 hit, no runs, and striking out 1.

The Bears on a 3-game win streak which they will take into tomorrow’s County Tournament. Currently the Bears share the MEC lead with Daleville (whom they beat), and Wapahani all at 4-1. Wes-Del fell to 3-2 with the loss.

MC will face Union City at 11 a.m. at UC following the Winchester-Randolph Southern game at 9 a.m.
