The JV Red Hawks baseball team lost a three-game series against the Lowell Red Arrows last week. The games were led by the bats of Seth Biggs and Peyton Newman, who both provided timely hitting and good base running.
Coach Tyson Hoffman said, “Lowell was a good team, with very disciplined and well coached athletes. We were able to stick with them for a lot of the game and made some good plays, but also showed our youth. We have to work on our fundamentals to get to their level.” Tuesday’s double headers ended with a loss of 12-4 and 5-4. Thursday’s loss was 12-3.
Last Friday’s battle against North Muskegon proved a win. The team was able to grind out at bats driving the starting pitchers count up to 91 in four innings. Peyton Newman was starting pitcher for Cedar Springs, who held the Norsemen at bay for the first four innings. Jerome Patin provided just over two innings of relief for the save, while Lucas Secord made multiple catches in the outfield, showing very good range for the position. The final score was 11-8.
The Red Hawks play against Grant, Greenville, and Holland West Ottawa this week.
