Freshman baseball goes 1-1 in doubleheader matchup versus Grand Haven

Going into a difficult game against Grand Haven this past Friday, the freshman baseball team looked to play a lot better on the defensive side of the ball. However, they were shut out in the first game 1-0. In the second game, FHC continued its stalwart defensive performance. This time, though, they made good contact with the ball. After an excellent performance overall, they came out on top by a score of 4-3. Out of all the key takeaways from these two games against Grand Haven, the Rangers’ glimpses of electric batting were the most impressive.

In FHC’s first game, they dominated defensively, committing only a few small mistakes. This time, the boys’ hitting tripped them up and made it extremely difficult to bring in runs. The opposing pitcher was outstanding, so the boys had trouble hitting off of him. Headlining the stat sheet at the plate, there was only one base hit at the top of the fifth inning by Roman Brummel.

Throughout the second game, FHC had a solid game defensively. Until the last inning, the Rangers didn’t let any ball get past them. Jacob Harleton dominated on the mound and heavily contributed to the team’s success. Unlike the first contest, the boys found some light on offense and scored four more runs than they did in the first game.

Next week, FHC will travel to West Ottawa on Wednesday, May 5, at 10:00 AM. With a good performance against Grand Haven in their back pocket, the boys look to boost their confidence even more with a fierce clash against West Ottawa.
