Hopewell 12’s Explode for 13 Runs in Win Over Upper St. Clair



The offense took a little while to get going but once it did, it was a total team effort as the Hopewell 12’s beat Upper St. Clair, 13-5, in their second game today in the Westwood All-Star Tournament.

With the game still scoreless after three innings, Hopewell exploded for 9 runs in the top of the 4th.

Coach Arzberger’s team got on the board first with a 2-run home run to left field by Aiden Ritchart. Later in the inning, with the bases loaded, Mason Santamaria drew a bases loaded RBI walk. Next up, Josh Gill plated two with a single to left field. After scoring two more on bases loaded walks, Gunner Reese capped off the 9-run inning with a 2-run double.
