Braves Season Ends In District Finals, Loss To Ross Ends Career For 7 Seniors

The Indian Hill Braves Baseball Season ended on Saturday (May 20) with a 13-6 loss to the Ross Rams (ranked #3 in Ohio).

The Braves jumped out to a 5-0 lead with an impressive 5 run 3rd inning.

Keith Hammond led off with a walk that was quickly followed by a Chandler Harris single, an A.J. King single, an Andrew Brockoff bunt, a Winston Caine walk, an error, and a Joe Oakes single.

But a 2 out error by the Braves in the 4th allowed 2 runs to score for Ross tightening the score 5-2 in favor of the Braves.

The 5th inning was the Braves worst of the season by committing 4 errors and allowing Ross to plate 9 runs.

By the end of the game, Ross had tallied 13 runs with only 1 being an earned run.

Ross collected 9 hits to the Braves 8.

Chandler Harris playing in his last game as a Brave went 3 for 3 with a walk giving him 44 hits on the season (2nd best in school history). He finished with a CHL league-leading batting average of .518.

It was also the final game for seniors Jack Forbes and Ian Book as well as Keith Hammond and 4-year players Max Sweeney, Greg Nevins and Winston Caine.

The District Final is as far as a Braves Baseball team has advanced since the 1993 season when Indian Hill lost in the state title game.
