Horde baseball has room for improvement

4-8 027By Jaime Thomas

Granville baseball players began their season with a hard game in a 16-1 loss at Stillwater on Monday.

But Coach Duane Dodge thinks his inexperienced players simply need a little time to learn. The Horde was able to snag one point in the sixth inning, but their hitting was not what it should have been.

“We didn’t hit at all,” Dodge said, adding that his 11-man team has to be on top of their game. “With lack of offense, we can’t make a lot of errors and give teams extra outs.”

Stillwater’s pitchers, Liam Kane and Jonathan Brewster, worked together to give Granville a hard time. The game came days after the Burch Memorial Tournament last Thursday.

The boys took a hit in the first game against Hadley-Luzerne, and Dodge said they didn’t play very well.

“Our pitching was off, but we’re young and we’ll have to work on those things,” he said. But in their afternoon game against Hudson Falls, the boys played better and finished with a 5-3 loss.

“We played pretty well; it was a much better game,” Dodge said.

The Horde will take on Hoosic Valley today and Hoosick Falls on Monday.
