Tuesday 4/24 vs Catholic
The unusually cool weather finally cooled the JV Ads arms. Eric Lessig had a tough start
lasting 1 inning with 1 strike out. Ben Rutter got the call in the 2nd and 3rd innings and
shut down the Irish bats with 0 hits and just 1 unearned run. Bull Strickland took awhile to heat
up, after rocky 4th inning he faced only 7 batters in the 5th and 6th innings combined.
The Ad bats were also affected by a cool spell, Jake Applegate had a double and Connor Boyd
had 2 singles. On defense the web gem goes to SS Donathan ranging across 2nd for a 6-3 or Tyler
Lugo for 2 great scoops at first or Austin Scheidt’s long run from right field into foul territory on a
fly ball or a beautiful Donathan to Schulze to Lugo double play.
