Last Monday was opening day for our Cedar Springs baseball team.  The varsity hosted the Lowell Red Arrows.  Aiden Brunin started on the mound.  He threw four solid innings, striking out six and walking only one. Senior Trenton Snoeyink came in the 5th inning and pitched 2 2/3, striking out 7 and walking 2.  Freshman switch pitcher Walker Glyshaw took the hill in the bottom of the 7th to get Lowell’s lead-off hitter to ground out and earn the save.  

Snoeyink earned the victory on the mound and also led the team in hitting with a single and a double.  Brunin, Logan Petty, Dylan Knauf, and Jeremy Campione each had singles in the game as well. Senior catcher Dylan Greenland also had a single, and threw out two Red Arrow baserunners as well.  All in all, Coach Glyshaw was pleased with a victory. 

“We made some mistakes, but were able to overcome those mistakes by hustling and capitalizing on opportunities when given the chance,” he said.

On Tuesday, the Panthers of Comstock Park traveled north for a single game.  Senior Dylan Knauf was the starting pitcher for the Red Hawks. He allowed only two hits as he pitched four solid innings, striking out 6 and walking only 1.  Glyshaw came out of the bullpen to strike out 6 Panthers over the final three innings, allowing only one hit.  

Brunin led the team at the plate with a pair of singles. Campione, Knauf and Alec McDonald each contributed with one hit apiece.  The Red Hawks were able to capitalize on a series of walks, which led to half a dozen stolen bases. Nate Mullins, Isaac Rypma, Logan Petty and Cayden Steinebach did a great job running bases. Steinebach himself scored 3 times.  The final score was 8-1 in favor of the Red Hawks.

On Wednesday the boys hit the road and traveled to Fremont to play a single game in the frozen north.  The temperature dropped about 20 degrees from the previous two games with a wind chill below freezing. Mother nature being uncooperative, along with some sore arms, made for a miserable afternoon as the Red Hawks fell to the Packers 15-0.  Willy Zain took the loss on the mound.

The varsity finished their first week with a record of 2-1 as they headed into Spring Break.

Their upcoming games will be against Forest Hills Eastern. Tuesday, April 13 will be a double header at FHE. Thursday, April 15 will be a single game at home.  Game times are 4:15.
