Original post made by, Atherton: other, on Apr 29, 2011

The MA Bears varsity baseball team put it all together and with pitching, defense, hitting and base running, evened the score against the Hillsdale Knights beating them 10-3 on April 29. Scoring for the Bears was a team affair started by catcher Cam Winn hitting a single up the middle and then scoring on a single to right by Kyle Zirbes who scored from first on a single to right by Nick Lange. After 2 walks and two consecutive singles by Dylan Cook and Ryan Cortez the Bears scored 5 runs. The 4th saw not only 4 consecutive singles (Eason, Zirbes, Lange & Brewer) but also aggressive base running with double steals by each pair: Eason and Zirbes who then scored on a wild pitch, followed by Nick Lange and Myles Brewer who stole 2nd & 3rd, then Lange stole home on a wild pitch but Brewer was called out. In the 5th, senior Kyle Zirbes, for his third hit of the game, blasted a 2 run home run over the left center fence.

Pitcher Nick Lange held the Knights to 6 hits scattered over 5 innings and 3 runs with running catches from his outfielders, Sam Falkenhagen, Myles Brewer, and Michael Abramson. Dylan Cook came in in the 7th and retired all three of the batters faced.
