Varsity baseball picks up three big wins over Ottawa Hills

Senior Adam Tellier went 6-7 with 3 walks, an RBI, and 10 runs scored across three games to lead the Rangers to three quick mercies in Saturday morning’s tripleheader against Ottawa Hills.

After a slow start offensively in the first game, FHC exploded in the fourth inning to put up 9 runs and seal the 20-0 mercy after four innings. Seniors Luke Herzog, Joe Szczepanek, Kyle Wojczynski, and Cole Coughlin all hit doubles in this inning to lead the charge.

The Rangers outhit the Bengals 13-1 with Joe, Kyle, Cole, and senior Ethan Vredenberg leading the team with 2 hits apiece. Luke also led the team in RBIs with 5 while senior Dylan Tucker had 3 of the team’s 11 stolen bags.

Senior Jacob Hornbeck earned a 1-hitter shutout on the mound while walking 0 and striking out 7. The defense was perfect behind him, committing 0 errors.

The second game was more of the same, as the Rangers put up 11 runs early to seal the win. A single run in the bottom of the third inning wouldn’t be enough for the Bengals to escape the mercy rule, and FHC took this one 19-1 in three innings.

Joe, Kyle, Dylan, and Adam all drove in runs in the first inning, and Joe led the team with 5 RBIs this game. Joe and Adam both went 3-3 at the plate and combined to score 5 runs while Kyle and junior Liam Nyberg both earned 3 hits in 4 at-bats en route to the win.

Liam allowed 1 run on 2 hits with 0 walks and 6 strikeouts from the mound. The Rangers again didn’t commit a single error.

The Rangers continued to pour on the runs in the third game of the day, as a 14-run second inning led them to their third mercy of the day over Ottawa Hills, this one coming 17-1. Adam went 2-2 with a walk and 3 runs scored, and Luke went 3-3 with 3 RBIs and 3 runs scored.

Senior Sam Boezwinkle had a standout game, going 2-2 with a walk, 4 RBIs, and 2 runs scored.

Junior Grant Coughlin took the mound in this game, allowing 1 run on 5 hits with 0 walks and 5 strikeouts. FHC remained errorless throughout this game as well.

The Rangers move above .500 to 9-8 (9-3) on the season and will have a very tough conference series against Lowell on tap for this week.
