Rocky Start for Baseball

Rich Hill baseball was defeated by the Archie Whirlwinds 22-2 on Wednesday, March 23rd. The Tigers scored early to take a 1-0 lead in the 1st on an RBI Double by McCrae Klinksick scoring Andrew Schmitt but the boys quickly relinquished the lead to Archie in the bottom of the 1st. It was all down hill after that as the Tigers made several errors in the field allowing Archie to score several unearned runs. Offensively for the Tigers McCrae Klinsick went 2-3 Andrew Schmitt went 1-2 with a walk and Jacob Mumma went 1-3.
The boys met up with Adrian on Thursday, March 24th and were defeated 14-4.  The team struggled again on defense committing several key errors that allowed Adrian to score.  Rich Hill baseball will  play again Tuesday and Thursday this week at home against Liberal and Drexel and travel to Jasper on Friday.
