Hasting’s clutch hit keeps Monroe unbeaten

MONROE — Cody Hasting’s clutch hitting in the bottom of the sixth inning kept the Bearcats undefeated in the Wesco North Thursday.

With Monroe behind 2-1 and the bases loaded, Hastings smacked a double over the Stanwood’s center fielder’s head, driving in two Bearcats to take a 3-2 Wesco North victory at Marshall Field.

Hastings finished the day 2-for-3 with a double and two RBI to lead the Bearcats.

“He has come through several times,” Monroe coach Neil Henderson said. “Seems like he has been getting one or two hits a game for the last three or four games”

Monroe’s Alex Blaugh pitched a scoreless seventh inning to end the Spartans’ chances and pick up the save. Blaugh was also 2-for-3 with a double.

Chris Seybold pitched the first five innings, giving up three hits before having to leave the game with arm trouble after three pitches in the top of the sixth inning. Winning pitcher Colin Adams came off the bench to pick up his first victory.

Seybold will have his sore right arm re-evaluated in the next two days.
