Central Valley Blanks Hopewell HS Baseball, 2-0

Published

on

Today’s matchup between Hopewell and Central Valley featured two dominant starting pitchers.

Unfortunately for Hopewell’s David Medich, Central Valley took advantage of an early miscue and got a big hit bomb late to defeat Hopewell, 2-0.

The unquestioned story of the game was Central Valley right-hander Zac McLean, who went 6.2 innings, allowing only 2 hits, 0 walks and striking out 15 batters.

Medich nearly matched him, going 5 innings, allowing 4 hits and striking out 5 batters. The only run Medich allowed came in the second inning and was unearned.

Through the first six innings, the only time Hopewell had a runner in scoring position was the second inning, as they stranded him at third.
