Knights split pair of tourney contests

Tuesday, May 27, 2003

The Northview Knights traveled to play baseball in the Washington High School tournament on Saturday afternoon and came away with a split of their contests.

The Knights opened the tournament with a convincing 12-5 victory over Southridge as Northview smacked three homeruns in the contest.

David Kingery got the pitching victory and also added three RBI's, including a homerun in the game. On the mound he threw six innings, giving up just two earned runs, four hits and struckout five batters. The win is his seventh in eight decisions.

Also at the plate, Brady Shomaker and Justin Wilson each homered in the game. Shoemaker had four RBI's in the game.

Jacob Jones had two hits and Andrew Griffin had a pair of doubles. T.J. King and Jason Brown each added singles.

In the second game, Northview was limited to just two runs, falling 3-2 to the host team.

Michael Stuckey got the start on the mound but was relieved by King who threw four innings in relief, holding Washington to just one run and two hits.

However, the Knights had little offense of their own as C.J. Peters had the lone extra base hit with a double. Jones, Shoemaker and Kingery each had singles in the game.

The Knights (19-6 overall) will face Greencastle at home on Tuesday night.
