Wednesday, the Kearsarge Cougars baseball team hosted the Bow Falcons as the baseball season is quickly coming to an end.
The Cougars coming in at 7 and 5 were hoping to play some of their best baseball in an effort to beat a tough Bow opponent who held a record of 9 and 3. But Bow had other plans as the Falcons were able to score five runs in the first three innings off of Kearsarge’s starting pitcher Jake Vierzen.
Christian McDonald led the Falcons offense going 3 for 4 with two doubles while scoring two runs. Bow’s starting pitcher Jeff Bell pitched very well, going five strong innings allowing just one run on two hits while striking out four opposing batters.
Jake Corriveau was able to make strong contact with this pitch and crushed it out of the park down the right field line for a home run that provided more cushion for the Falcons who would go on to win by a final score of 9 to 1. Bow’s head coach and starting pitcher spoke to YCN after the game.
Bow improves to 10 and 3 and has won seven of its last eight games while Kearsarge falls to 7 and 6 as the Cougars will look forward to take on Bishop Brady Friday.
