Panthers edge Dieterich for 3-2 win
Sports Editor

A last-minute schedule addition turned out to be a positive one for Oblong High School's baseball team.

Having not played a game this week due to rainouts and schedule changes, the Panthers were able to schedule a game at Dieterich Wednesday, which they won, 3-2.

"This game was scheduled late in the morning (Wednesday), as both teams found themselves without a single game played this week," OHS head coach Dave Hasty said.

It was yet another low-scoring affair for Oblong, but this time they were able to do enough good things to come away with the victory.

"This was a good close game," Hasty said. "Dieterich out-hit us, but we did put the ball in play. We really wanted another win before going in to regionals, so we were happy to get this one."

Oblong opened the scoring with a run in the top of the second, but Dieterich came right back with a run in the bottom of the inning to tie the score. The Panthers then struck for two runs in the fifth to take a 3-1 lead, while Dieterich got a run back in the bottom of the sixth. However, Oblong was able to hold on and pull out the win.

Koert Mehler led the offense for OHS with a double and two runs batted in, while Collin Meese and Wes Jones had a base hit and a run scored apiece and Kyler Fear scored a run.

James Rogers had his second straight strong outing to earn the win, allowing one run on five hits in five innings. He also walked one and struck out five. Tyler Woods tossed the final two frames, giving up a run on three hits, while walking three and striking out one to earn the save.

"Koert came up with a big double when we really needed it," Hasty said. "Our pitchers did an outstanding job of keeping us in this game."

With the win, the Panthers now hold wins over the No. 2 seed (Dieterich) and No. 3 seed (Cumberland) in their upcoming regional.

Oblong (3-10) has concluded their regular season, as their Little Illini Conference game with Lawrenceville will not be made up. The Panthers will play host to Martinsville in the first round of the IHSA Class 1A Louisville-North Clay Regional Monday at 4:30 p.m.
