Varsity baseball drops a pair to Grandville

The varsity baseball team traveled to Grandville for a non conference double header but came up short in both games. Grandville’s offense was too much early in the games and FHC couldn’t respond, leading to the 6-2 and 5-1 losses.

In game one the Bulldogs scored all 6 runs in the first two innings. The FHC bats came alive in the top of the 6th, but the errorless Grandville defense held them to only 2. Each team tallied 5 hits, but the Rangers had 2 defensive errors.

Senior Jake Heilman went 2-3 at the plate and junior Kyle Wojczynski had both RBI’s. The Grandville pitching staff went to work on mound, striking out 10 Rangers. Junior Adam Tellier did most of the pitching for FHC, walking 3 and striking out 6.

Game two saw more of the same as Granville scored all their runs in the first two innings. FHC responded earlier, this time in the top of the third, off of a hit from Jake. He was the only player to get a hit for the Rangers. Again, the Bulldogs were dominant on the mound to strike out 8 Rangers.

Junior Cole Coughlin took the mound for FHC, as he gave up 5 earned runs on 6 hits, walked 1 and struck out 2. Cole’s defense was errorless behind him, but the Bulldogs had too much too early and FHC wasn’t able to respond.

The Rangers look to bounce back from these losses to take on Lowell this week in the last conference series.
