MABEN – The East Webster Wolverines liked the number five to keep them alive in the Class 2A postseason.
With five runs in the fifth inning, East Webster was able to break a 2-2 tie and went on to defeat East Union 8-3 on Saturday.
The Wolverines won the series 2-1 and advanced to meet Mantachie next weekend with the first game being at home on Friday.
"I kept telling the guys to keep putting the ball in play on the ground and that's what we did," East Webster coach Wes Johnson said. "We were able to get some key hits late in the game."
The Wolverines were able to get four of their five hits for the game in the fifth inning.
Miller Hancock and Derek Jones opened the fifth inning with back-to-back singles for East Webster. After John W. Williams reached on a fielder's choice, Chase Keller drove home Hancock with a single, then Jones came home on a single by Jack Wilson. Keller and Wilson scored on an error.
Wolverine pitcher Cody Boland liked getting the run support.
"That was very important," Boland said. "Our guys are always able to get it up one inning."
