Hilbert baseball opened conference play last week looking to follow up a big win against Oberlin College April 2. It would be a day where everything went La Roche University’s way.
The Hawks pitcher Aydan Rolph would only last 3 innings as the Redhawks got to him early scoring five runs. Jake Seymour, the starting pitcher for La Roche, threw six complete innings while giving up zero runs and striking out seven batters.
La Roche’s lead off hitter Austin Hoffman would have quite an offense game collecting two hits, one of those being his first homerun of the season. Hilbert would have seven hits in the first game but couldn’t plate a run dropping the first game of the double header 13-0.
In the second game Zachary Crane would start on the mound for the Hawks, but would leave the game in the second inning due to an injury. Before leaving crane would give up three runs, two of them being earned, making the score 3-0 heading into the bottom half of the third inning.
With the bases would be loaded for Misael Guzman., he hit a single scoring one and making the score 3-1. A couple pitches later Frank McCabe would score on a wild pitch making it 3-2. But two runs would cap Hilbert’s Offensive for the rest of the day. La Roche would continue to tack on 13 more runs throughout the rest of the game. Winning their second game of the season 16-2.
