It has been an exciting time for Woodward-Granger’s baseball team. Every team that has challenged the Hawks (19-0, 12-0) have found themselves on the wrong side of the record column.
That narrative continued in the Hawks past three games where the pitching and offense to dominated both sides of the field.
Last night the Hawks took their undefeated record to Ogden for a West Central Activities Conference matchup against the Bulldogs (7-12, 6-6).
Spencer Hanson, W-G’s starting pitcher, recorded his sixth win this season after pitching the complete game 5-1 victory.
Hanson commanded the strike zone. He threw 95 pitches, gave up four hits, 1-unearned run with no walks and nine strikeouts.
After three scoreless innings the Hawks finally got on the scoreboard with two runs. They put the game out of reach in the fifth with another three runs.
As a team the Hawks scored their runs off seven hits. Hanson and Reese Jamison had two hits a piece. Jamison tallied three RBIs.
It was the first time in six games that the Hawks didn’t eclipse double digit runs.
On June 15, at Panorama High School, the Hawks scorched the host Panthers (2-10, 2-9) in a double header that saw the visitors outscore their counterpart 29-2.
The Hawks were the visiting team in the first outing where the squad put up 14 runs in five innings while only allowing one run.
Brandon Worley, Hawks’ starting pitcher, earned his fourth win in just four innings of work. He struck out three, walked one and gave up an unearned run on three hits.
Hanson, who played shortstop, was perfect at the plate with a 3-for-3 performance that included three runs scored and four RBIs.
In game two Jamison got the start and secured his first win this season. He threw for three innings, struck out two and gave up one earned run.
Once again the bats got things going early. The Hawks opened up the game with eight runs in the first, four in the second and three more in the fourth or the 15-1 win.
Brady Aunspach, Hawks catcher, took the hitting reigns with a 4-for4 outing. He scored a run, had a double , stole a base and brought in two runs.
Offensively the Hawks finished game two with 15 hits on 26 at bats, seven stolen bases, and drew five walks.
W-G’s head coach Eric Evans couldn’t be prouder of what his tam as accomplished so far but the team needs to remain focus on one inning at a time.
After the game against Panorama, the Hawks trailed the Van Meter Bulldogs by a half game in the WCAC. The two teams meet on June 29 in a doubleheader matchup hosted by Van Meter.
“[It’s] gonna be a big game but we have four conference games before them so not really focused on them at all,” Evans said.
