Wingard gave the Indians a lead off runner when UDA pitcher Connor Deitrich hung a curve ball that hit Wingard in the elbow. Cole Shomper was able to lay down a sacrifice bunt to advance Wingard to second. Logan Troutman followed with a fielders choice to short stop to advance Wingard to third to set the stage for Snyder’s game winning RBI. Wingard earned the win on the mound pitching a complete game shutout giving up just 3 hits and 1 walk while striking out 10 Trojan batters. Deitrich pitched well in the loss allowing 4 hits, 1 hits batter, 0 walks, and 5 strikeouts.
