Strong players make up for low numbers

baseballBy Jaime Thomas

Considering his team’s lack of manpower, Granville Baseball Coach Duane Dodge is pleased with his players’ performance.

“The boys are happy that they get to play all over the field, but from a managerial standpoint it’s tough,” Dodge said. Granville took home a pair of losses last week, but the boys still gave good performances in varied roles.

The Golden Horde tried hard but fell to Cambridge 4-1 on Thursday. Dodge said it was a well-played game, but the team didn’t hit.

“It was one of those days where we didn’t get it in the right spots,” he said. He said Evan Hoagland, who struck out 10, did a great job pitching. And juniors Jacob Halterman and Logan O’Brien both singled for their team.

For the Indians, Brady Sausville led his team with two singles, an RBI and six strikeouts as pitcher.

On Tuesday, the Horde took an 8-1 hit to Greenwich at home.

“Greenwich is one of the toughest in the league — we played them well,” Dodge said.

He was pleased with O’Brien’s work on the mound, especially because he doesn’t pitch too often.

“Logan O’Brien kept us in the game, and that’s all we ask for,” Dodge said. Hoagland, whose name keeps cropping up this season, also added a single and a double for the Horde.  The Witches’ Cody Sebast helped snag the win for his team with two singles and two RBIs.

Dodge thinks the boys continue to play well with what minimal numbers they have. They are now 3-4 in the league and 3-7 overall. They have a chance to turn the table on Hoosick Falls, whom they lost to earlier in the season, in a home game this Friday at 4:15.
