Granville pitchers throwing hard

baseballIt’s been a busy week for Golden Horde pitchers Evan Hoagland and Luke Hahn.

The two each pitched a complete game and saw action at bat, too, in three games.

On Thursday, Hoagland gave Tamarac no play with a 9-0 win. Coach Duane Dodge was happy with his team’s performance.

“It was a well played game all the way around — it was the best played game so far to date,” he said.

Though Hahn stayed off the mound, he went 3 for 4 with a triple. Colton Zavistaski and Jake Young each hit a double and a single for Granville.

During the game, Elijah Fournier gave Tamarac players a workout in a rundown between first and second base. For a minute it looked like Fournier would make it to safety. But despite his efforts, it was a brief moment of ‘monkey in the middle’ that eventually ended with his getting tagged and the Bengals out of breath.

The next day it was Hahn’s turn to pitch a full game in a 16-10 league win against Schuylerville.

Hoagland, meanwhile went 4 for 5. He also had a double and helped his teammates out with five of their runs. Zavistaski had a double as well, while Hahn had a triple and drove in five more runs. Dodge said Horde offense was very good, and defensively the boys played pretty well

Schuylerville caught up a bit in the third, snagging six runs, but Granville was able to hold the line for a win.

“We need to not make mental errors. Once they start to realize they can’t give free outs, they do well,” Dodge said.

On Monday things took a turn for the worse in a 14-3 non-league defeat to Burr and Burton. Ron Taylor took home the loss on the mound but singled for the Horde. Zavistaski and Hoagland each hit a single as well.

Dodge pointed out Burr and Burton was not able to make a run for most of the innings.

“It was just those two bad innings when we gave up errors. Other than that we played pretty clean,” he said.

Granville is now 3-2 in the league and 3-6 overall. The boys host Cambridge today and Hoosic Valley on Monday.
