The Northview 'C' baseball team won a thrilling decision over Terre Haute North on Wednesday night, scoring on a wildpitch in the bottom of the fifth inning to claim a 3-2 victory.
The Patriots scored both of their runs in the first inning on three walks and a single off of Northview starting pitcher, Tanner Wilson. However, the Knights' hurler settled down and held the Patriots scoreless the rest of the way before giving way to Steven Watts for the final two outs and the save.
Wilson threw 4 1/3 innings, allowed just two hits and one earned run with eight strikeouts to gain the victory. Watts came in to close out the win with a strikeout.
The Knights got on the board with a run in the third inning from Bo Stewart, who singled. Northview then tied the score in the fourth inning as Ethan Whitson walked to lead off the inning. Denver Reberger followed with a walk before Trevor Hetrick doubled them home to tie the score.
In the fifth inning, Jacob Wallaced led off the inning with a base hit and Bo Stewart added a single before Nate Newton walked to load the bases. With Austin Butts at the plate, a wild pitch plated the game-winning run for the Knights.
