Canfield High School
Senior Logan Wilms battled on Tuesday and gave the Quakers a chance against the #2 seeded Canfield Cardinals but in the end, it wasn’t enough as the Cards beat the Quakers 2-1.
After 3 scoreless innings by both teams, Salem would get on the board first in the 4th. Senior Jerod Carner would lead off the inning with a single up the middle and would advance to second on a sacrifice bunt by freshman Ricky Enlow. Carner would advance to third on single to left field by senior Logan Wilms and score 1 batter later on a safety squeeze by Shawn Chappell.
The Cardinals would get all the offense they needed 1 inning later on 1 swing of the bat. After Hitting the first batter of the 5th inning, Wilms left a fast ball in left fielder Hernandez’s wheel house and he promptly deposited it into the trees beyond the fence in center field to give Canfield a 2-1 lead.
The Quakers didn’t go quietly however as they would get a runner into scoring position with 1 out in the 7th. But the Cards would get Braydon Gibson to strike out and Jerod Carner to fly out to center field.
While the Quakers tournament has come to an end, they will be back in action on Wednesday night at home against Carrollton at 5 o’clock.
The Quakers are 9-13 overall and 3-8 in the NBC.
