Baseball sees loss, win

baseballBy Jaime Thomas

It was a win and a loss for Horde baseball players last week.

The team took a hard hit to Hoosic Valley on Wednesday, losing 9-1, but they turned it around two days later in a 7-5 win against Hoosick Falls.

Friday saw Granville’s Luke Hahn and Hoosick Falls’ Billy Pine keep the scoreboard clean by letting no runs in with their throwing in the first two innings. Hahn kept up the pace and struck out seven throughout the game. As has been the case this season, the Horde’s opponent was only able to get runs in two out of seven innings.

Senior Colton Zavistaski added two runs and two hits to Granville’s win, and junior Jake Haltermann hit a double. Hoosick Falls’ Randy Tutunjian hit the game’s other double.

The Panthers tried for a gain with four runs in the fifth, but the Horde’s three plus one more in the sixth was enough to seal their victory.

Hoosic Valley came into the game 7-1 in the league, while Granville started at 3-6.

Evan Hoagland took home Granville’s loss, which gave the Indians play in four of the seven innings. It took until the sixth quarter for the Horde to get a run, and Logan O’Brien made contact with two hits.

A couple of errors in the fourth, which should have been outs on Granville’s part, gave Hoosic the opportunity to get on base and score two runs. For the Indians, Frank Ayker was able to snag three hits.

Granville moved up to 4-6 in the league and 4-9 overall. They’ll play Schuylerville away today and host Greenwich on Monday.
