On Saturday, the Eagles traveled to Allen Park for a doubleheader. Unfortunately, after two hard-fought games, they still are looking for their first win of the year, dropping the games by scores of 7-3 and 15-11.
Eamon Horwedel started the first game for the Eagles, and pitched two hitless, shutout innings before being replaced by senior Matthew Hagan. Hagan also pitched well, giving up only three runs, but the Eagles offense managed only three runs.
At the plate, Horwedel set the pace for the Eagles with a triple and two RBI. Jake Push knocked in the other run for the Eagles, who managed six hits in the contest. Blake Mial, Sean Haddlessey, Jack Winger, Matthew Hagan, and Jack Winger were the other Eagles to get base hits in the first game. Haddlessey and Winger both doubled for their first extra base hits of the season, and Mial scored two of the teams three runs.
In the second game, Skyline roared out to a quick 3-0 lead in the first inning, and then made it 5-0 in the second before Allen Park started to roar back in what quickly became a shoot out. An eight-run fourth inning for Allen Park proved to be Skyline’s undoing in the contest, but they never gave up, plating four runs in the last inning, before falling short 15-11.
Ian Frison started the game on the mound for the Eagles, before being replaced by Colton Guntzviller, Jake Push, and Charlie Siers.
At the plate, the Eagles banged out a total of eight hits and drew seven walks. Senior captain Jack Lehker went 3-3 at the plate, drew a walk and had one RBI. Fellow senior Andrew Fisher went 1-3 with three RBI for the game. Also contributing on offense with hits were Sean Haddlessey, who collected his second double of the day, Eamon Horwedel, who smacked his second triple of the day and also knocked in another run, Jake Push, who had a pair of hits, including a double and an RBI, and Ian Frison, who went 1-1 with an RBI. Colton Guntzviller also collected an RBI with a bases-loaded walk.
The Eagles return to action with conference games against Huron this week: a double header on Monday at Huron, and a single game on Wednesday at Skyline. They also host Bishop Foley on Saturday for another double header.
