Baseball Dominates Grayslake North

The varsity baseball team rolled over the Knights in their 18-4 victory on April 23.

Last Tuesday, the varsity baseball team took on the Grayslake North Knights. The team came out strong against the Knights and had one of their biggest offensive games of the season.

Sophomore Ethan Andrews was clutch at the plate, driving in five runs on two at bats leading the Sequoits past the Knights 18-4. He also had the most steals in the game, taking advantage of Grayslake’s wild pitching.

“[The game] will push us to succeed,” senior Austin Andrews said. “[It] makes us want to win conference.”

Grayslake North managed three runs in the first inning, but the Sequoits stopped them from scoring. Senior Logan Delgado made the most plays in the field, with five, while Antioch committed zero errors.

The Sequoits first started things up in the first inning when Vincent Roszkowiak tripled on a 1-0 count, scoring two runs. In the second, E. Andrews singled scoring one, senior Sean Weiser singled scoring two and senior Jack Gillespie singled on the first pitch of his at bat, scoring one.

“We had very solid offense throughout the line,” sophomore Kylar Arias said.

In the fifth inning, Antioch had six runs. The contributors to this big winning were Roszkowiak, Tyler Skutnik, E. Andrews and Delgado. They all knocked in runs.

Carson Scott was given the victory for the Sequoits. He pitched three and a third innings, allowing four runs on four hits.

The boys play Grayslake North on April 24 at home. They are looking for another big game against them.
