Varsity Red Hawks baseball win two, lose two

The Varsity Red Hawks baseball team squeezed in a pair of games between rainstorms last week at Ottawa Hills.

In game one, despite some control problems, Junior Kyle Wise was able to throw a complete game on the mound, striking out 5. Dylan Williams led the team at the plate with a pair of singles and a pair of doubles. Colton Moor and Kyle Wise added three hits each, including a double. Seth Biggs, Jarrett Hoogerhyde and Nathan Draper also chipped in with a pair of hits each to seal the 19-4 victory.

In game two, the Hawks senior right-hander Nathan Draper hurled a one-hitter, striking out 6 in a 5-inning complete game in a 13-1 victory. Again the boys hit the ball well. Peyton Newman had three hits to lead the team. Bryce Marvel and Trevor Reed each had two singles. Connor Ellison and Seth Biggs each added another hit. Jarrett Hoogerhyde had 2 doubles, and Thomas Reed added a double and a triple.  

This improved the Red Hawks’ record to 5-2. 

On Friday, April 19, the Red Hawks traveled to Forest Hills Eastern for a double header.  

In game one, Seth Biggs combined with Bryce Marvel to complete the game.  Though they both pitched well and only allowed four runs between them, the offense was only able to scatter 7 hits throughout the game. The first inning started with a bang with a single from Thomas Reed and a double from Dylan Williams. Bryce Marvel then drove a ball into the gap, hitting the top of the fence, to score the only two runs for the Red Hawks. Nathan Male also added a pair of singles in the game and Nathan Draper also added a hit. Final score was FHE 4, Red Hawks 2.

In game two, Peyton Newman pitched 4 strong innings before Eastern’s bats did some damage in the 5th. Trevor Reed led the team with three singles. Marvel continued to hit the ball well by adding a single and a double. Williams and Newman each added a single apiece. The final score for game 2 was FHE 10, Red Hawks 3.  

After those games, the varsity record sat at 5-4. This week they play a 3-game series with the Forest Hills Central Rangers. Watch next week’s paper for those results.
