FAIRBORN — The Washington C.H. 12-year-old all-star baseball team began District 8 tournament play Monday, traveling to Fairborn’s Little League facility to take on West Carrollton.

Washington was just too much for the West Carrollton all-stars, winning 37-1.

Washington batted just twice in the game, but they more than made the most of their two turns at the plate.

Washington batted around twice in the first inning (18 batters), scoring 14 runs.

In the second inning, Washington sent 29 batters to the plate, scoring 23 runs.

Washington was playing station-to-station in the second inning. Wherever the ball was hit or whomever fielded it or didn’t make the play, each runner was stopping at first base. Washington also refrained from advancing and scoring on wild pitches and passed balls, as well.

Washington made the third out of the second inning intentionally, sending a base-runner from third to home where he was tagged out.

The Washington all-stars collected 30 hits in two innings.

For Washington, Lafe Coleman was 5 for 5 with three doubles, one triple and five runs scored.

Xavier Lawhorn went 4 for 4 with two inside-the-park home runs and a triple. He was hit by a pitch and scored five runs.

Frank Maddux was 4 for 4 with three runs batted in and three runs scored.

All 13 players for Washington scored at least one run.

Lawhorn was the starting pitcher for Washington. He went 1.1 innings with one hit and one run. He walked two and struck out four.

Coleman pitched two-thirds of an inning with one walk and Cody Moore pitched a scoreless third inning, striking out the side.

Washington will return to Fairborn Tuesday to play the host team, beginning at 6 p.m.
