HOWARD — It was a simple combination of timely hitting, solid defense and good pitching which lifted the visiting Utica Redskins to a 5-4 road win over the East Knox Bulldogs in their Mid-Buckeye Conference showdown on Friday.

“We were a little flat coming here,” said Utica coach Bren Henderson. “We had a late bus, but our kids did a great job focusing back up.”

The Bulldogs grabbed the early lead on a Drew Ulliman RBI single. They also got some good innings out of Ulliman on the mound.

“Drew’s a sophomore,” said East Knox coach Kevin Gallwitz. “He came out and pitched a good solid four innings.”

The Redskins (16-5, 12-1 MBC) got an unearned run in the second when Drew Beaver singled and scored on an error.

The Bulldogs took a 3-1 lead in the bottom of the third when Clayton Frost smacked a double, followed by a Chad Lupher walk. Both runners moved into scoring position on a groundout and both scored on a fielding error by Utica shortstop Nate Wyscarver on an Ulliman grounder.
