Granville’s offense struggles in season-ending losses

O ffense was hard to come by in Granville’s final four games of the season.
The Horde was limited to 12 hits in last four games as the team wrapped up its season.
Last Tuesday, Tamarac’s Cody Sullivan allowed only a single hit in a 3-0 complete game shutout at the Ken Burch Athletic Complex.
Granville’s Evan Hoagland nearly matched Sullivan, allowing only three hits but the Bengals capitalized on three errors, scoring a single run in the second, third and fourth innings.
Jake Williams had Granville’s only hit.
The offensive woes continued the following night, as Stillwater limited Granville to a total of two hits as the Horde was shutout for a second consecutive night, 11-0.
The Warriors broke open a scoreless game with seven-run second inning and added a pair of runs the fourth inning and again in the fifth inning.
Four players hit doubles for Stillwater.
Granville had a chance to play the role of spoiler last Thursday in Schuylerville. The Black Horses came into the game with a chance to win a share of the Wasaren League title and didn’t let the opportunity escape them, pounding out 17 hits in a 27-8 win.
Three players—Greg Smith, Matt Saddlemire and Jake Petralia—combined for 18 RBIs in the win.
Granville limited Schuylerville to a single run in each of the first two innings but the Black Horses erupted for back-to-back 10-run innings in the third and fourth.
Although Granville managed to tack eight runs in the board, they managed only two hits and benefitted from four Schuylerville errors.
Hoagland recorded one of Granville’s two hits, a triple, in a five-run fourth inning.
Granville finally got the bats going on Monday, recording seven hits against Cambridge, but were only able to scratch out two runs in an 11-2 loss.
Cambridge jumped out to an early 1-0 lead after the first inning and added six runs in the third inning to open a commanding 7-0 lead.
Granville tried to mount a comeback, scoring twice in the fifth inning, but Cambridge added four runs in the bottom half of the frame to pick up its third win of the season.
Ronnie Taylor recorded two hits, a double and single, for Granville.
Granville finishes the season with a record of 2-12 in the Wasaren League and 2-13 overall.
