Varsity Baseball Crushes McHenry

The baseball team walked over McHenry in an easy 15-5 win on April 14.

The varsity baseball team rolled over McHenry in their game Friday night. They won 15-5 and never let up the entire game. McHenry scored three runs in the first inning, but the Sequoits managed to take the win. Senior Jack Gillespie had a four RBI day, driving in runs on a double in the third inning and a triple in the fourth.

“We got off to a slow start,” sophomore Alexander Kutcher said. “Once we got settled in, we did well, we came together as a team and worked to get a lead.”

In the third inning, Antioch put up 11 runs. Other than Gillespie’s double, sophomore Kylar Arias singled on a 1-1 count, scoring two runs. Sophomore Ethan Andrews singled on a 0-2 count, scoring one run. Eric Hart’s sac fly scored one run for Antioch and junior Tyler Skutnik hit into a fielder’s choice, but scored one run. Arias came up again, singling on a 3-2 count to score two.

“Everyone contributed to the win,” Arias said. “Our defense was shaky at the start, but then we pulled through. Our bats woke up to start the scoring.”

Senior Sawyer Phillips was credited with the win. He allowed only four hits and five runs over five innings while striking out one. Overall, the Sequoits had ten hits in their victory over McHenry.
