Bauerle's 1-hitter leads B-G in Class C

STAFF REPORT

Asked if he would say Tuesday’s outing was Bainbridge-Guilford senior Austin Bauerle’s best of the season, Bobcats coach Tim Mattingly replied, “Yes, I would.”

Bauerle struck out 15 and walked two in a one-hitter to lead the eighth-seeded Bobcats to a 2-1 Section Four Class C first-round baseball victory over visiting Spencer-Van Etten.

“His velocity was up and he threw strikes,” Mattingly said of Bauerle. “He had a lot of swings and misses, and he some called third strikes, but he just overpowered them.”

The ninth-seeded Panthers (9-8) received their lone hit from Tyler Ellenson, who singled to start the fourth inning. Ellensen stole second, went to third on a groundout and scored on losing pitcher Eliot Deppe’s squeeze bunt to give S-VE a 1-0 lead.

B-G (14-3) tied it in the fifth. Tim Parsons hit a one-out triple to left-center and scored on a single by Jake Mazzarella.

Parsons and Mazzarella also collaborated on the winning run in the seventh inning.

Parsons singled with two outs. Parsons was on the move when Mazzarella hit a gapper to right-center and scored the winning run without a throw.

Parsons finished with two hits and scored both B-G runs. Mazzarella also had two hits and drove in both of the Bobcats’ runs.

Deppe finished with nine strikeouts in a six-hitter.

“The Deppe kid threw very well,” Mattingly said. “He had a live fastball and a couple of change-ups. He really kept us on our heels a bit. It was a great game and a great pitching duel, but Bauerle was an absolute horse on the mound.”

Next for B-G is a sectional semifinal at 4:30 p.m. Thursday against top-seeded Seton Catholic Central. Mattingly said the game likely will be played at Broome Community College.
