Charlie Dicke hit a walk-off double off of Lake City’s Jake Griebenow to cap off a performance dominated by the Wildcats’ seniors.
“Our seniors had a fantastic day,” Goodhue coach Eric Schofield said. “(Tonight) really showed their leadership.”
Jordan Taylor led off the final inning with a single, leaving Dicke with the pressure. The senior catcher stepped up and doubled to give Goodhue its third win of the season.
The Wildcats did survive a scare in the seventh defensively, though. Lake City finally figured out Dustin Thomforde and scored two runs to force Goodhue to bat in the seventh frame.
Brian Strauss took over and induced the final two outs in the inning.
“It was (Thomforde’s) best outing of the season by far,” Schofield said. “He was in command the whole night and it was great to see.”
Goodhue was held scoreless until the sixth, when Dicke and Strauss hit back-to-back triples to put them on the board.
Dicke finished 3-for-4 with a double and a triple.
With the win, Goodhue improved to 3-14 overall and 1-8 in the Hiawatha Valley League. It travels to Pine Island for a doubleheader on Saturday. The first game is scheduled for a noon start.
