Hopewell Junior High Baseball

Hopewell Junior High Baseball Goes Down to Montour, 16-6

Published

on

In sports, good teams must have the mindset of next play, next game and that’s exactly how the Hopewell Junior High Baseball team have to be thinking.

After two solid games against West Allegheny, the Vikings were back in action this afternoon as they hosted the Montour Spartans 8th and 9th grade team.

Unfortunately for Hopewell things didn’t go as well today as they did on Wednesday as they were defeated by the score of 16-6.

Of the 16 runs scored today by Montour, only 5 of them were earned.

After Montour scored one run in the top of the 1st, Hopewell responded with four runs of their own in the bottom of the inning and all came after 2 were out.

With 2 outs, Collin Davis drew a walk on a 3-2 pitch. Next up, cleanup hitter James Armstrong hit an absolute bomb to straight away center field. In most fields, that ball would have been a home run but since the Hopewell Junior High doesn’t have a fence, Armstrong recorded a double, which scored Davis. After a single by Camden Hoth, Josh Gill put the ball in play and reached on an error by the Montour shortstop, which allowed Armstrong to score. Hopewell led 2-1. Two more runs then came home on a line drive single to left field by Jackson Yurcina.

Hopewell led 4-1 after one inning.

Montour then scored five runs in the next two innings to take a 6-4 lead. A few of those runs scored due to errors.

Hopewell cut the deficit to 6-5 with a run in the bottom of the 3rd inning but Montour put the game away in the 4th inning as they plated 8 runs.

A definite bright spot today for Hopewell was the job that 7th grader Reed Budavich gave Coach Nick Hoth in relief. The right-hander went 2.2 innings, allowed 3 runs (1 earned), 2 walks and 1 strikeout.

Hopewell’s record falls to 2-2 and they’ll return to action next Wednesday as they’ll host Central Valley.
