The wins keep coming...
That was the case for the Williston Coyotes baseball team as they closed out the 2019 regular season schedule with a road doubleheader sweep against the Bismarck Demons on Thursday, May 16.
In the first matchup of the afternoon, Williston came out on top in a tight ballgame, 3-2. After falling behind 1-0 in the second inning, the Coyotes answered back with two runs in the third. The brief Williston rally was ignited by Camdin Miller’s RBI single.
In the top of the seventh, Christopher Sathe gave the Coyotes a little insurance with an RBI single of his own as Williston enjoyed a 3-1 advantage at that point. Bismarck would score one run in their final at-bat, but Williston starting pitcher Zach Carson shut the door on the Demons’ comeback bid.
For the game, Carson went the full seven innings without allowing an earned run. He gave up three hits and struck out five batters in the process. Leadoff hitter Brady Aberle also made his presence known in the lineup with a 3-for-4 day at the plate and two runs scored.
The second game between the two teams was far less competitive as the Coyotes dismantled the Demons in five innings, 12-0. Williston totaled nine hits in the game, and Aberle, Garret Hill and Denver Sheets all recorded multi-hit games for the Coyotes. On the mound, Hill was credited with the win, going four innings, and allowing just one hit while striking out four.The Coyotes finish up the regular season in first place in the WDA West Region with an overall record of 23-3, and a conference mark of 16-2. Postseason play is scheduled to begin on Monday, May 20.
