Varsity baseball splits with Lowell

Senior Luke Herzog went 1-1 with a double, a walk, 2 RBIs, and 1 run scored to lead the varsity baseball team to a 5-3 win over Lowell in the first game of the doubleheader last night. The Rangers were able to break a tie late in the game, but the boys couldn’t hold on in game two and lost the second game of the night 8-2.

In the first game, senior Kyle Wojczynski put FHC on the board early with an RBI, and the Rangers would put up 2 more runs in the top of the second. Lowell found a way to knot it up, but junior Grant Coughlin singled in the top of the sixth to score the go-ahead run. Grant had a good game at the plate, going 2-3 with an RBI and 1 run scored. The Rangers would put up 1 more in the top of the seventh to slam the door on the Red Arrows.

Senior Cole Coughlin got the start on the mound and lasted into the fifth inning. He allowed 3 runs on 3 hits while striking out 2 and walking 0. Senior Adam Tellier came in for relief and allowed 0 runs on 2 hits with 3 strikeouts.

In game two, Lowell came out hot and the Rangers weren’t able to catch up. The Red Arrows put up 3 runs in the first inning and 1 in the second to jump out to a big 4-0 lead early. FHC scored 2 in the top of the third thanks to RBIs from Adam and senior Dylan Tucker, but Lowell responded with 4 runs in the bottom of the fourth to convincingly take the win.

The Red Arrow pitcher earned a 1-hitter, as Kyle was the sole Ranger to earn a hit. FHC was outhit 6-1 and had 3 errors on defense, which greatly contributed to Lowell’s lead. Sophomore Brady Price started on the mound and lasted into the fourth inning; he allowed 8 runs on 6 hits with 1 strikeout. Junior Johnny Mielock came in for relief and earned two quick outs.

FHC moves to 10-9 (10-4) on the season and will host Lowell on Wednesday for the series-deciding game. A win against the Red Arrows will be key to keep the Rangers above .500 on the season and keep them at the top of the OK White conference.
