Spring Hill ends Creek Wood's baseball season with 7-3 win in region semifinal

Creek Wood’s Red Hawks saw their baseball season end Monday with a 7-3 Region 6-AA semifinal loss at Spring Hill. After a 23-9 regular season that saw the Red Hawks go a perfect 16-0 in District 11-AA games and claim the North Division with three straight tournament wins, Creek Wood ends its season with back-to-back losses 15-6 to Lewis County in the district tournament championship and 7-3 to Spring Hill in the Region 6-AA semifinal. The Raiders got to Creek Wood’s Kyle Klotz early for four runs on four hits before chasing the starter with only one out. Spring Hill added a run in both the second and third off reliever Will Duke for a 6-0 lead. Creek Wood got on the board in the fourth with a Kyle Heggie walk and a Klotz double to set the table for Paul Rahman’s two-RBI single. Spring Hill answered with a run in the bottom half for a 7-2 advantage. Creek Wood loaded the bases in the sixth when courtesy runner Chase Haley scored when Justin Tummins hit into a fielder’s choice, but Creek Wood was unable to muster any more runs as Zach King closed the door with a strikeout, then retired the Red Hawks in order in the seventh for the complete-game win. Spring Hill is scheduled to host CPA tonight in a rematch of their District 12-AA championship after the Lions eliminated Lewis County 14-4.
