Roff rolls past Asher in finals

Roff —      It was a week of perfection and revenge for the Roff Tigers.

     Coach Ead Simon’s Tigers capped off a perfect 4-0 week and claimed a championship in their own tournament on Saturday by knocking off Asher, 12-4, in six innings.

     The win by Roff (8-4) avenged two earlier season losses to the Indians, who blanked the Tigers both times, 4-0 and 9-0. Roff opened the week by stunning Dale, after losing to the Pirates earlier this season, before rolling to wins over Moss and Byng in the Roff Tournament.

     Both Dale and Byng were unbeaten before the Tigers defeated them.

     “I’m really proud of our guys. We couldn’t have asked for a better week,” said Ead Simon.

     Dalton Reed homered, while Zach Lewis and Cruz Villafranco collected two hits apiece for the Tigers, who compiled nine for the game.

     Lewis went 2-for-4 and scored a pair of runs, while Villafranco was also 2-for-4 and drove home three runs.

     Roff hurler Hunter Larsh worked all six innings, allowing nine hits and only two walks while striking out three. All four Asher runs were earned.

     “We made some (defensive) plays and Hunter worked out of some jams,” Simon said.

      One of the best defensive plays of the day for the Tigers came from center fielder Andy Antonio, who gunned down a runner at the plate from deep left-center in the third inning.

     “It was a phenomenal throw,” said Simon.

     After Asher struck for a pair of runs in the top of the first, Roff responded with three runs in the bottom half of that frame, highlighted by a two-out, two-run single by Villafranco.

     The Tigers then upped the count to 5-2 in the second with a sacrifice fly by Reed being the highlight.

     Then in the fourth, Reed blasted a two-run homer to make it 7-2. The Indians retaliated with two runs in the fifth to pull within 7-4.

     Roff then put the run rule into effect with a five-run sixth, with an RBI single each from Antonio and Villafranco being the highlights. Villafranco’s hit ended the game.

     For Asher, Phillip Leon went 2-for-3 and drove in a pair of runs, while Hunter Fowler and Tim Johnson were each 2-for-4. Fowler doubled once, knocked in a run and scored once while Johnson scored one run.

     Indian starter Caleb Dubler took the loss and was relieved by former Roff player Trucker Lee in the sixth.

     Roff returns to action on Tuesday by hosting Dale at 4:30 p.m., while Asher entertains local rival Latta Tuesday at 4 p.m.
