HARMS HARDBANK HAWKS BASEBALL UPDATE
On Saturday, June 3rd, the Harms Hardbank Hawks beat Yes Academy 12 to 4 at Palmer Park in Detroit. Fernando pitched all three innings that were played, allowing four runs (only one of them being earned) and striking out five (it would have been eight if not for some dropped third strikes); he also had two at-bats, driving in two runs in the first, and another one on a groundout in the second. Jaylen (2B) reached first base on a dropped third strike and went on to score a run in the second inning. Emmanuel (C) caught all three innings and scored a run in the first. Shawn (3B) scored runs in the first and the second inning. Gael (RF) walked twice and scored a run in the second inning. Carlos walked in the second inning and played two innings as shortstop. Julian walked in the first inning and provided defensive support at first base. Xavier (LF) should have walked in the first inning, but a nose-high pitch was called a strike in order to “keep the game moving;” in the third inning, he drew a walk and scored a run. Bryan hit singles in the second and third innings and scored runs in both. Jesús walked in the second inning and scored a run; he also took over at first base, making an important out that prevented a runner from stealing on a dropped third strike. Jorge was hit by a pitch in the second inning and then scored a run; in the third inning, he singled and scored another run. Sean was walked in the second inning and scored a run; it was unclear whether or not he scored in the third, since the game was called as he was rounding the bases (he is not credited with a second run in the official score). Jurem walked in the second and scored a run.
