Eight innings not enough for Red Devils in regional loss

HINSDALE – An up-and-down team most of the regular season, Hinsdale Central’s baseball team was riding a hot streak into the playoffs.

The Red Devils won five of their final eight games of the regular season with one tie, but they couldn’t maintain that momentum in a 2-0, eight-inning loss May 24 to Waubonsie Valley in a semifinal game of the Hinsdale Central regional.

Central (16-13-1) hung with the Warriors in the hits department but just couldn’t match them in the runs column.

Jacob White and Matt Muellner had back-to-back singles in the sixth to put runners at first and third with one out, but Central couldn’t scratch a run across.

Chris Botsoe lined a two-out single in the top of the eighth, advanced to second on White’s walk and went to third on a wild pitch, but he was left stranded at the end of the inning.

In the bottom of the eighth, the Warriors followed a one-out single with a home run to end the game.

Central starting pitcher Bobby Skogsbergh pitched about as well as possible without earning the win. He went all seven-1/3 innings, scattering five hits and striking out six while walking just two.
