Baseball wins three straight

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Whitehall’s baseball team is rounding into form.

The team has won its last three games, and none were bigger than Monday’s 19-8 win over Adirondack League East division rival Hartford.

The Railroaders recorded 22 hits in the game and avenged a loss to Hartford earlier in the season.

Josh Hoagland and Codie Bascue combined to go 8 for 8 with four doubles, seven RBIs and seven runs scored and Paxton DeLorme went 3 for 5 with two doubles and three RBIs.

Carl Rehm struck out five and allowed five hits in seven innings as he improved to 4-0 on the season.

Whitehall jumped on the board in the first inning, scoring three runs, and blew the game open in the third inning with eight runs.

DeLorme, Bascue and Hoagland all recorded RBI doubles in the inning.

Rehm held Hartford scoreless through the first three innings before Hartford jumped on the board with six runs in the fourth inning.

Whitehall lost to Hartford 21-1 on April 20, but head coach Jason Hoagland said he expected the team to play better the second time around.

“We knew we were better than the first time we played them,” Hoagland said. “I didn’t know we were going to win, but I knew we would play better.”

On a somber note, infielder Justin Hoagland was injured when he was spiked trying to tag out a runner at second base. He received several stitches to close the cut

Jason Hoagland said Justin should be alright but will likely miss a few games.

 

Earlier games

On Friday afternoon, Whitehall took advantage of a big first inning and cruised to a 7-3 victory over Fort Edward.

Brett Christian struck out seven and allowed five hits to pick up his fourth win of the season. He helped his own cause by going 2 for 3 with an RBI.

Colby LaChappelle also went 2 for 3 with an RBI and Josh Hoagland stroked a run-scoring triple.

The Railroaders did all their damage in the first inning, scoring six runs, and added another run in the fourth.

Whitehall also knocked off North Warren 10-8 in nine innings last Wednesday.

Trailing 7-1 in the seventh inning and staring at its third consecutive loss, Whitehall scored six runs to force extra innings and scored three in the top of the ninth to win the game.

Carl Rehm picked up the win on the mound, Codie Bascue had three hits, including two doubles and drove in three runs and Josh Hoagland added a pair of doubles.

The three-game winning streak improved Whitehall’s record to 8-4 on the season and ensures them a berth in Sectionals.

“Our goal at the beginning of the season was to make Sectionals and we’ve done that,” Jason Hoagland said.

This team has a lot of potential and I think we’re starting to realize it.”

Whitehall is fourth in the Adirondack League with four games left in the regular season.
