Varsity baseball breezes by Greenville for two wins to start three-game series


The red-hot FHC varsity baseball team swept through the Greenville Yellow Jackets on Wednesday night, winning the first two games to start the season series.

A clean 10-1 victory proved a lot for the Rangers. The second game, though, was a gut-check for FHC. A close 4-3 win to end the night put the Rangers in place for a sweep come Friday.

After a close series of wins last week against a top-notch Forest Hills Northern team, FHC had a clean slate this week against Greenville.

Game one featured an offense that got hot quickly while the pitchers handled most of the game for the Rangers. Right away, FHC jumped on the Yellow Jackets within the first two innings and grew a large lead. Seniors Joe Seurynck and Beau Coughlin both drove in a run while the pitching for the Rangers held off Greenville in what became a 10-1 win.

Game two saw most of the bench bats and arms get some time for the Rangers. Juniors Chase Robinson and Matthew Holtgreive tallied a hit in game two while fellow junior Justin Osterhouse drove in a run as well. Greenville nearly made a comeback late in the game but failed. FHC scored two runs late in the game to solidify a 4-3 win, getting quality reps for each and every player on the squad.

After the doubleheader, the Rangers improve to 6-0 on the season. The boys will face Greenville one more time on Friday, April 22, at Grenville at 4:15 PM for a single game. Another top team in the OK White, the Lowell Red Arrows, will come into FHC next week Monday for a doubleheader to start off a three-game series between the two.
