Rex win 3-2 in 12 innings

TERRE HAUTE — The Terre Haute Rex were nothing if not resourceful Wednesday with the Butler Blue Sox paying a visit to Bob Warn Field.

The Rex managed to score a run right in the middle of Butler’s no-hit bid.

The hitless lead would only hold up for a half-inning, and though the Rex would ultimately get a hit later, they didn’t get many and they couldn’t get their offense pointed in the right direction.

But the resourcefulness never dried up and neither did Terre Haute’s pitching. It helped the Rex delay the outcome until extra innings even with just one hit in the regulation nine.

Staring a one-run deficit in the face in the 12th, Terre Haute rallied for two runs — through the benefit of just one base hit — and the Rex posted a 3-2 victory in Prospect League baseball.

The Rex (10-8) won their second game in a row and gained a measure of confidence after it had suffered through a six-game losing streak.

Butler starting pitcher Denis Lyman was dominant in his first four innings. He struck out five and allowed only three baserunners to reach.

All three of those Rex baserunners reached via walks and Lyman’s wildness got the better of him in the fifth. He walked Rey Perez with out, hit Ryan Sabo and then hit Zach Welz to load the bases. Manuel De Jesus’ sacrifice fly to center put Terre Haute up 1-0.

Lyman ultimately exited the game in the middle of his no-hit bid because he couldn’t find the plate.

Butler (11-8) had a quick response. After a leadoff single by Zac LaNeve, Stephen Sada knocked him in with single to right to knot the score at 1-1.

Tony Rosselli broke up Butler’s no-hit bid in seventh with a single to center, but it was the only hit Terre Haute could muster in the scheduled nine innings.

Terre Haute’s pitching was outstanding. Starter Brandon Allen allowed one run in six innings of work, but relievers Kevin Weissheier and Ben Morrison were even better. They combined to allow just one run in five innings of relief.

The Rex gave itself its best shot in the 10th. Sabo walked, Welz singled to center and De Jesus legged out an infield single. Terre Haute had the bases loaded with one out, but Matthew Chavarria hit into a 4-6-3 double play.

Butler finally broke the deadlock in the top of the 12th. Nick Sell led off with a double down the left field line. Jeffrey Revesz’s one-out sacrifice fly to center drove Sell and the Blue Sox led 2-1.

Terre Haute wouldn’t succomb. Perez drew a one-out walk and Tyler Lawrence singled. With two outs, De Jesus drew a two-out walk to load the bases.

Chavarria was thrust into the same situation he had been in during the 10th. He hit a routine grounder to short that looked like it would end it, but the Butler shortstop tried to run to second base to get the force and field the ball at the same time and he bobbled it. All runners were safe and the Rex tied the game on the miscue.

Cayce Bredlau then drew a bases-loaded walk to seal the victory for Terre Haute.

The Rex and Blue Sox will play again at 7:05 tonight at Bob Warn Field.

    Maybe they should play this at Valle Field. It’s called Terre Haute Boys & Girls Club Park now, but the venerable ballpark was the site of some classic high school baseball regional games in the 1970s when coach Don Jennings and Terre Haute North’s local dynasty fought off stiff challenges from the best the rest of the Wabash Valley had to offer.
