Hopewell High School Baseball Drops 8-1 Decision to Montour



For the second straight game, a big inning by the Montour Spartans leads them to a win over Hopewell.

On Monday in their 7-2 loss, it was a 4-run 5th inning that did Hopewell in and Tuesday night, Montour was able to score 5 runs in the 3rd inning which propelled them to an 8-1 victory.

Hopewell’s record now stands at 6-5 and 3-3 in the section, while first place Montour moves to 9-2 and 6-0 in section.

Emmett McCowin got the start last night for Hopewell and received some help in the first inning from his defense. With a runner at 1st bases and 1 out, senior Jake Robinson tripled to right field but on that play, Matteo Weber tried to score from 1st base, but right fielder Ben McDonald prevented that with a perfect strike to catcher Charlie Smetana, who put down to tag to keep the game scoreless. McCowin would end the inning with a strike out.

The Hopewell right-hander had a clean 1-2-3 2nd inning as he got two grounds balls and a pop fly to CF John Vescio to end the inning.
