Oak Hall Baseball sprints its way to victory over Saint Francis Catholic

The Oak Hall baseball squad had a strong outing Wednesday, beating district opponent Saint Francis Catholic 9-5. The Eagles came into the game 10-3 on the year and had played the Wolves once before on the year, winning 10-0.

Flow Of The Game

Oak Hall came out hot to start the game. A four-run first inning set the tempo for the rest of the game. The Eagles were uber-aggressive on the base path, leading to constant mistakes by the Wolves. Harrison Beach and Darion Medley led a speed attack with three steals each. They showed off how effective their baserunning could be early when a double steal resulted in Beach scoring the first run of the game. Fans were shocked as Medley took off for second after a walk, catching the Wolves sleeping and leading to an errant throw allowing Beach to score. Medley then stole third on the next pitch, causing another errant throw and allowing him to score.

On the Mound

Jack Kuzmicki was on the mound for the Eagles to start the game. He was able to go four full innings giving up three runs, zero earned, on four hits while striking out six. He even helped himself out with some offense in the second inning, hitting an RBI double. He also recorded an RBI single in the sixth.

Gavin Jones came in to relieve Kuzmicki but had a shaky night. He pitched 1.2 innings, walking four and giving up two earned runs while striking out three. Jackson Beach was the last to pitch. He went 1.1 innings to finish the game and did not allow a run on three hits while striking out three.

Top Performers

The Eagles team found a lot of success. Beach scored four runs, going 1-2 with two walks. Medley scored two runs, going 2-3 with one walk. Kuzmicki also picked up two hits, ending the day with two RBIs. Jones and Jack Steen both had one hit as Steen drove in two with a sac fly and a double.

Up Next

At 11-3, the Eagles look ahead to a non-district game on the road against Trenton. With six games left in the year, the Oak Hall boys hope to stay hot and continue their strong season.
