Freshman baseball tops a chirpy Hudsonville team 5-2


After its Thursday game got rained out, the freshman baseball team faced Hudsonville in a talkative battle. Hudsonville’s bench was chirping at the boys the whole game. However, with some good plays down the line, the boys pulled away and won 5-2 in an electric atmosphere.

The boys were wrapped up in a heated battle the whole game. With a few great plays down the stretch, the boys were able to secure the win. Drew Fortino had a huge hit for 2 RBIs right after Jacob Harleton had a nice bunt to get on base in the fifth inning. Those two runs batted in really helped the boys secure a dominating lead. Mathew Curtis also played a crucial role in the victory, pitching six and a half innings after suffering a minor injury the day before. Mathew Seurynck then came in and closed the game out for the Rangers. Out on the field, Alex Brown fielded the ball at a high level by making very few errors and helping the team stay solid throughout the game. Along with Alex, Lance Childers also made great plays with his glove.

The boys’ next game is against the Lowell Red Arrows on Tuesday, May 11. In their previous battle against the Red Arrows, the boys handily defeated them by a score of 14-6. The Rangers look to extend that large margin to an even greater one by consistently fielding the ball at an elite level.
