BHS takes the fight out of O’Dea’s Irish
It was a 13-4 landslide win at home for the Bainbridge High varsity baseball team as they sent O’Dea’s Fighting Irish packing Wednesday, April 23.
Standout Spartans included Ben Kussie, Tino Peleti and Dylan Vchulek.
Kussie was the most frequent Bainbridge batter and after five at-bats he had accumulated two hits, two RBIs and two runs.
Vchulek totaled two hits, one RBI and two runs in his four at-bats and also managed to steal one base.
It was Peleti, however, who helped usher in the most points for the team. In his three at-bats he set in motion four RBIs, and personally racked up one hit and one run as well.
“We played fairly well but as always there is room for improvement,” said Spartan Head Coach David Smart in his usual matter-of-fact way. “[We] got a very good pitching performance from Brett Green, and we hit the ball well although I thought we missed a couple opportunities to finish the game with the bats.”
Smart said that as well as the team has been playing, there are still fundamental errors in the Spartan game.
“We had a couple of errors today on plays that we should make,” he said. “And our approach at the plate, for a few at bats, could have been better.”
Even if the intermittent showers and chilly breeze may have kept the crowd of spectators a bit frosty, Smart said that the shifty weather did not affect the game or the team’s performance.
“I don’t think the weather had an impact today,” he said. “What we had today was typical spring baseball weather. We were excited for this game, and a little rain wasn’t going to affect that attitude.”
