Despite a great pitching performance from Bryce Marvel, who struck out 9 in 5 innings of work, the Hawks fell to Allendale 7-3. Our boys were up 3-1 going into the bottom of the 7th and just couldn’t close it out, committing 5 errors in the inning. Peyton Newman led the team with 2 hits, while Trevor Reed, Dylan Williams, Seth Biggs, and Conner Ellison each added one hit each.

Seth Biggs and Conner Ellison split the first 6 innings on the mound and Nathan Draper game in and closed out the 7th inning to earn the eleventh victory of the season in the 10-3 win. The boys pounded the ball, getting a total of 14 hits. Nathan Male, Thomas and Trevor Reed, Peyton Newman, Bryce Marvel and Jeremy Campione each had two. Dylan Williams and Seth Biggs added one hit apiece.  

With the exception of the final inning in the Allendale game, the Red Hawks played excellent defense. Nathan Male made a few eye-popping plays in right field. He threw 3 runners out at first base and used his great speed to make a full-speed diving catch. The Red Hawks are sitting at 11-9 as they enter the final two weeks of the regular season.
