The Trojans scored the first four runs of the game, then the all-important final run in the bottom of the 7th to defeat Germantown 5-4 at Breitlow Field Friday night. West jumped out to a 4-0 lead after the first inning, then Germantown tied the game with three runs in the 5th and another in the 6th. With two outs in the bottom of the 7th and nobody on base, Monroe Phillips singled to left. Danny Belknapp then doubled to the right-center field gap, and Phillips raced home to beat the tag at the plate for the winning tally.
Belknapp started on the mound and pitched 6 1/3 innings before hitting his pitch limit, and Mark Schaefer, in his first varsity appearance, calmly retired two of the three hitters he faced to earn the victory.
The Trojans face Tosa East in a rematch at Breitlow Field Monday night. Game time is 5:30.
