The Patriots led most of the game but needed a seventh-inning rally to top Bardstown Friday in the Wood Bat Classic at Berea College. A three-run spurt in the final inning gave Model an 11-10 victory. Kelly Daniels scored off a double by Jessie Middleton, who scored along with Ollie Gasser on a perfectly-placed squeeze bunt by Taylor Billings to give Model the win. “It was a very good inning,” Model coach Chris Robinson said. The Patriots (4-2-1) jumped ahead 8-3 after five innings, but allowed Bardstown to storm back and take the lead in the sixth inning. A.J. Hammons went 2-for-2 with a run and a stolen base, Ray White was 1-for-4 with a double, Daniels was 1-for-4, scored two runs and had three stolen bases, Middleton was 1-for-2 with two runs, Gasser was 2-for-4 with two RBIs, Billings scored two runs, Cody Billings was 1-for-2 with two runs and Turner Curtis was 1-for-2 with a run. David Losson went five innings and allowed two earned runs, one unearned run and struck out one. Tyler Reeder got the win for an inning of work. Brandon Thomas also pitched for the Patriots. Model will return to action today in the Wood Bat Classic at Eastern Kentucky University. They will face Cordia at 1:45 p.m. If they win, they will be in the championship game, which is set to begin at 6 p.m. The eight-team, two-day tournament is being played at various locations around Madison County, including Turkey Hughes Field, Lake Reba, Model and Berea College.
