Thursday, Mar 29, 2018

The Varsity Crusader Baseball Team begin the season with a win and a loss. The Andale Indians were visiting on Thursday afternoon, under cloudy skies (most of the time), cool and windy conditions, but no rain! 

In Game #1, Wellington jumped out on the Indians 3-0 after 2, and hung onto the margin until the 5th inning. Andale crossed home plate 4 times to take a 1 run lead into the bottom of the inning. The Crusaders responed with 3 more of their own, to regain their lead, now by just 2 runs. The Indians had two more at-bats to remedy their situation but came up short, scoring only 1 in the top of the 7th and final inning, losing to the Crusaders in the opener. The Indians "out-hit" the Crusaders 9-4 but also "out-errored" them 5-3. Great start for the team in red!

Arlis Troutman (0-0) pitched for 4.2 innings, giving up 8 hits and 4 runs and 2 SO. Cade Fairbanks (1-0), came in, in relief for 1.2 innings, giving up 1 H, 1R and 1 SO. Gage Cunningham relieved Fairbanks for the final 2 outs of the game.

In Game #2, Andale turned the tables early on, leading 2-1 after 1. Both squads remained scoreless for the next 4 innings. In the 6th, both added a run, leaving Andale up 1. Then the 7th and final inning arrived and the flood gates opened for the visiting Indians. In the top of the 7th, Andale crossed the plate 11 times and won the nightcap 14-2. Andale had 7 hits total, Wellington 4. "Error honors" went to the Crusaders this game with 5, Andale had 3.
