Varsity baseball finishes up season

Pictured are the seniors with their parents on senior night.

The Red Hawks opened the final week of the regular season against a powerhouse from the north in Central Montcalm.  In the double header the boys were only able to manage a total of 8 hits.  

In game one,  on May 20, Nathan Draper did a great job throwing strikes.  In 5.3 innings of work he struck out 3 and walked 2.  Bryce Marvel threw the last 5 outs of the game, striking out 2 batters.  Trevor Reed, Jeremy Campione and Nathan Male had the only hits in this contest in which Cedar lost 5-1.

In the second game, Peyton Newman took the mound.  He got through 6 innings, striking out 3 and walking 3.  His off speed pitches kept Central Montcalm off balance throughout the game.  Nathan Male came in to close out the last inning.  Cedar Springs entered the 7th inning with a 3-2 lead, but a costly error allowed the Green Hornets to score a pair of runs that led them to a 4-3 victory when the Red Hawks weren’t able to push a run across in the bottom of the inning.  Getting hits in this game were Dylan Williams, Bryce Marvel, Logan Kobayashi, Trenton Snoeyink and Jarrett Hoogerhyde.

On Tuesday, May 21, the Red Hawks took on the conference leaders, the Huskies from Forest Hills Northern.  In the first game, Husky pitcher St Antoine was tough.  This season he has been the top pitcher in the league with an ERA under one.  The Red Hawks were only able to scratch out two hits in the 10-1 loss.  Seth Biggs drove a single to left in the 5th inning, and Dylan Williams crushed a solo homerun to left late in the game as well.  Connor Ellison did well on the mound, throwing 4 complete innings.  Nathan Male closed out the game, pitching the final three innings.  The story of the game was again, a few costly errors.

This was the final home game for the varsity, which meant senior parents were honored in a brief ceremony between games.

The second game went only four innings due to the umpire losing control of the game and calling a forfeit.  The final score was 6-0 with Trevor Reed getting the only Red Hawk hit.

The third game of the series, and the final regular season game was played at Forest Hills Northern on Wednesday.  Bryce Marvel took the mound for Cedar Springs.  In 6 innings of work he struck out 7 and walked only one.  Yet again, a few errors cost the Redhawks the game, with a final score of 3-2.  Jeremy Campione led the Hawks at the plate with a pair of hits, while Nathan Male, Connor Ellison and Peyton Newman each added a hit as well.  

The varsity baseball team finished the regular season with a record of 13-16.  They were able to defeat some very good baseball teams, but also struggled hitting at times.  Coach Glyshaw is very proud of their accomplishments and is looking forward to a successful post-season district tournament.  They play the host school, Big Rapids, on Tuesday, May 28.  The winner will move on and play Chippewa Hills on Saturday, June 1.
