Varsity baseball picks up two conference wins over Northview


Senior Kyle Wojczynski led the varsity baseball team to two conference wins over Northview last night, as he went 4-6 with a walk at the plate while earning 3 runs scored and 2 RBIs across both games.

The Rangers opened up the night with a 6-2 victory over the Wildcats then earned an 8-3 win after five innings played—the second game was stopped due to darkness in the top of the sixth inning, but the teams were able to get five innings in, which counts as a complete game.

Northview put up 2 quick runs in the bottom of the first inning, but the Ranger offense was able to respond in the third. Things got started when junior Liam Nyberg doubled to score 1 run, followed by a base hit by senior Joe Szczepanek to score 2 runs. The Rangers would go on to score 4 total in the third inning, followed by 2 more in the sixth inning to slam the door on Northview for the win.

Senior Adam Tellier and Kyle led the team at the plate in game one, as they each went 2-4 with 1 run scored. Senior Cole Coughlin and sophomore Joey Wise each earned a hit as well for FHC, as the Rangers totaled 8 in the game.

Adam got the start on the mound, as he went five innings while allowing 2 runs on 6 hits with 6 strikeouts. Cole came in as a reliever and gave up 1 hit.

Game two was more of the same, as Adam and Kyle continued to lead the team at the plate. Adam went 2-3 with a walk, 2 RBIs, and 2 runs scored, while Kyle went 2-2 with a walk, 2 RBIs, and 2 runs scored in just five innings. Senior Luke Herzog hit .500 in game two while scoring a run as well.

The Rangers got things going early, as they pushed 3 runs across in the bottom of the first inning. A single run in the second and a big 4-run fifth inning left the score at 8-3 when the game was called.

Sophomore Brady Price started the game on the mound for FHC, as he gave up 3 runs on 4 hits with a strikeout and 3 walks. Cole came in as relief from the bullpen again, and he allowed 2 hits.

FHC moves to 2-3 (2-1) on the season after its first two wins of the season last night. The Rangers will host Northview for the third game of the series on Friday while looking for the sweep over the Wildcats. The boys will then play on Saturday in the EGR Round Robin Tournament.
