Georgiadis: Seminole ekes out victory

SEMINOLE — A week ago, Seminole had pulled off another one-run victory with an extra inning 5-4 win over Clearwater. It was the third one-run win in a row for the Warhawks and players and coaches spoke of how character was strongly being built.

On Tuesday, in the first round of the 19th Annual Steve Georgiadis Holiday Tournament, the hosts were on the winning end of their seventh one-run game this season with a 2-1 victory over Shorecrest in nine innings. But this time the Warhawks gathered together just beyond the infield along the third-base line where each coach, including head coach Greg Olsen, discussed offensive deficiencies.

With hits at a premium against the upstart Chargers, Seminole starter Tim Lamoureux had to match wits with Shorecrest starter Marc Brakeman. After each allowed a run in the first inning, neither allowed another run before they both were relieved for following the seventh inning.

Lamoureux struck out 16 while allowing six hits and one walk; Brakeman had 12 strikeouts with seven hits and five walks.

"It's beginning to get frustrating the way we're struggling at the plate," Lamoureux said. "For us pitchers, we feel we need to pinpoint all our pitches and we feel we need to be perfect in the field."

The bright spots for Seminole (12-3) were Joey Krehbiel and Brett Phillips, who both went 2-for-3 including a homer by Phillips to lead off the Warhawks' at-bat. Phillips also scored the winning run after he led off the ninth with a walk and later scored on Jordan Doyle's hit to center.

For the Chargers (12-4), the loss was a moral victory of sorts. The youthful Shorecrest squad, which features just one senior, is now 5-3 against public schools.

"We've played so much together over the past few years, including summer ball, that we feel we have a lot of experience," said Brakeman, one of five sophomores. "We decided to play a tough schedule this year to prepare us for the playoffs."

Lakewood won its fifth in a row with a 5-3 win over Northside Christian. Jordan Lindsay allowed one run over four innings of relief to pick up the win.

DJ Vanderhere went 2-for-3 with one run and Keegan Oberer was 1-for-2 with an RBI and one run for the Spartans (6-8), who have now beat Clearwater, Lakewood and Northside in a span of a little more than a week.
