It would perhaps have been appropriate to have played Paul Simons’ Slip Sliding Away during the sixth inning of Monday’s night game in Warsaw.
The Wildcats led 3-1 going into the sixth but Skyline would score four runs in the inning to win 5-3.
The loss over shadowed a nice outing by Scott Winters who came in for Matt Luebbert in the second when his sore elbow flaired up.
Warsaw scored first in the third when Riley Bagley platted the run on a single by Cash Miller.
Skyline would tie things up the fourth after a wind blown triple floated over the head of Joey Mace in right field. A single would tie the game before Warsaw scored two in their half of the inning.
Keegan Glenn walked, stole second and scored on a Punch and Judy hit by Trey Palmer. Palmer would score on a single by Ryan Spouse.
Then on a pivotal play of the game, Bagley would hit a line drive that Freshman  Second Baseman Zane Kelly would drive for. The ball popped out of his glove but he threw to second to start a double play at first.
In the sixth, Warsaw’s nightmare would begin with an error by third baseman Trey Palmer. A single and a wild pitch would score two runs.
A single to center and a close play at first accounted for the other two runs. Riley Bagley came in and finished the inning on the mound.
Gage Gunter pitched five innings for Skyline while Mason Lile closed out the last two innings.
With two outs,Luebbert
was hit by a pitch/stole second and Miller grounded out to end the game. Skyline moved to 15-4 while Warsaw fell to 4 -10.
