BASEBALL

April 3, 2018 Sports News Comments Off on BASEBALL Posted By: Joanne Green, SID

The HU baseball team remained perfect in league play with a 7-0 shutout over Saint Francis (8-19, 5-5) Monday afternoon at the ASH Centre. The W is also the Foresters’ sixth straight as they improve to 8-12 overall.

It was pitching by committee for Frame’s crew as four different Foresters took to the bump with sophomore hurler Mason Shinabery tossing the first four innings during which he gave up just one hit while striking out six.

DJ Moore took the mound next and was credited with the win. In three innings of work, he gave up just two hits and a walk while striking out three. Alex McCutcheon and Tarrin Beachy each pitched an inning of relief after that and between the two, gave up just one hit while striking out two.

Huntington took control early by scoring three times in their first at bat and adding another in the second for a lead that would last until the ninth when the visitors piled on three more runs all the while blanking the Cougars for their first shutout of the season.

HU opened up play with a two-out rally to make for probably the most notable frame for the Foresters. Daniel Lichty was tagged with a pitch to get things started after which Tyler Zimske singled to right field. With runners on the corners, an errant throw allowed both to score to keep Huntington’s drive alive. After an Adrian Perez base poke, Nick Davit doubled in Huntington’s third and final run of the frame.

It was a cheap run in the second as Donovan Clark was the second Forester to be hit by pitch and after stealing second; the speedster came around to score on a fielding error in right field for a 4-0 advantage.

HU finished with ten hits on the day. After logging four through the first two frames, Huntington managed just two over the next six innings before pounding out four in the ninth for three more runs. After three singles and two outs, Zimske drew a base on balls for a nontraditional RBI after which Jamar Weaver deliverd a hard-hit ground ball up the middle for a two-run single to close out the scoring and claim his third RBI of the afternoon.

The Foresters are scheduled to host Grace tomorrow at 4:30 p.m.

SOFTBALL

April 2, 2018 Sports News Comments Off on SOFTBALL Posted By: Joanne Green, SID

The Huntington softball team split its twin bill with Grace College Friday afternoon at Miller Field to move to 12-10 on the year, 7-5 in league play for a share of the fourth spot in the standings. After a 4-2 come-from-behind win in the opener, the Foresters were on the wrong end of a 5-4 comeback W by the Lancers.

Casey Lehman paced HU at the plate by driving in two of HU’s four runs. Her first RBI-base poke came in the first after Joelle Beals opened up the frame with a single after which Sophia Beachy did the same setting up Lehman’s run-scoring single up the middle for an early 1-0 Huntington advantage.

The Foresters left five runners stranded over the course of the next five frames without pushing a run across home plate. Meanwhile the hosts scored twice in the second for a 2-1 lead that held until the top of the seventh.

It was déjà vu in HU’s last at bat as Beals and Beachy started things off with back-to-back singles prepping Lehman for another big hit. This time the clutch hitter, on an 0-2 count, found a hole up the middle to drive in Beals for a second time. Beachy scored on the same play on an errant throw from the outfield.

Abby Keaffaber added an insurance run by sending one to the warning track for a two out RBI-double. Down to their last three outs, Grace opened up with a single but Lairen Miller quickly kiboshed the Lancers’ rally by working three straight outs to wrap up the win.

Miller scattered five hits and gave up two runs and two walks while striking out two for her seventh win of the season.

Gower’s squad posted nine hits with Lehman claiming three of them to go along with two RBI while Beals and Beachy each finished with two base pokes. Keaffaber added a run-scoring hit in addition to drawing two walks to reach base three of her four plate appearances.

The Lancers returned the favor in the nightcap, just not in such dramatic fashion. After a 1-1 deadlock through the first four innings, HU struck for two runs in the top of the fifth by way of Keaffaber’s second RBI-double of the day and a Paige Eichelberger run-scoring single immediately after for a 3-1 advantage.

Grace erupted for five hits to the tune of four runs in their half of the fifth to surge ahead 5-3. Beachy pulled the Foresters within a run in the sixth by driving in Miller with shot to left-center. Unfortunately, their rally was cut short as they left two runners stranded before a 1-2-3 seventh sent the visitors home with a loss.

Just like game one, Beals and Beachy each logged a pair of hits. As a team, the Foresters registered nine hits to Grace’s 11.

Mallory West took the loss for HU by giving up seven hits, four runs and two walks while striking out one. The rookie hurler tossed the first four frames and started the fifth before being relieved by Miller.

Huntington is back in action on Monday to host Saint Francis at 3:00 p.m.

GOLF

March 29, 2018 Sports News Comments Off on GOLF Posted By: Joanne Green, SID

The Forester men’s and women’s golf team spent the first part of spring break in Tennessee to compete in the Phoenix Invitational at Old Hickory Country Club hosted by Cumberland University where the HU men claimed 9th and the women finished 11th.

The Forester men fired a 315 on Monday to sit in a tie for seventh but slipped a few spots after Tuesday’s round of 320 to finish with a team total of 635. Cale Carr paced Sholund’s crew with a 154 (75, 79) to claim 23rd out of 90 golfers.

Andrew Weisheit (78, 77) and Zach Borntreger (77, 79) shot within a stroke of each other to post a 25th-place 155 and 29th-place 156 respectively. Zakry Cummings fired an 85 both days to card a 170 while Nick Whitney rounded out Huntington’s scoring with a 184 (94, 90).

Cumberland claimed the title by turning in a 595 followed by Martin Methodist (600), Tennessee Wesleyan (606), Pikeville (606), Faulkner (619), Campbellsville (620), Asbury (629), Midway (631), HU (635) and Shawnee State (640).

The Huntington women carded a 725 for the invitational, a single stroke behind 10th-place Martin Methodist, by shooting a 368 on Monday and a 357 on Tuesday. It was a balanced attack for the Foresters with Leah Thompson leading the way with a 180 (91, 89) good for 49th out of 61 golfers followed by Betsy Schroeder with a 181 (90, 91).

Alexandria Maris shot a 182 (94, 88) with Abby Poole on her heels at 183 (94, 89). Megan Higgins posted a 192 (93, 99) to round out HU’s scoring.

Dalton State won the women’s title with a 621 followed by William Carey (628), Taylor (643), Cumberland (645), Faulkner (650), Brenau (652), Trevecca Nazarene (662), Bethel (678), Asbury (688), Martin Methodist (724), HU (725) and Shawnee State (761).

Both teams are back in action on April 7 at the Mount Vernon Nazarene University Cougar Classic.

SOFTBALL

March 29, 2018 Sports News Comments Off on SOFTBALL Posted By: Joanne Green, SID

The HU softball team had a rough go of it Wednesday night against the 12th-ranked Wildcats of Indiana Wesleyan (24-5, 5-3). The Foresters, having pulled into campus just after noon from Kentucky, played sluggish to suffer a pair of shutouts, 11-0, 2-0, to drop to 11-9 overall, 6-4 in league play.

Offense was null for the visitors as freshman Kennedy Krull was the only Forester to register a hit, a single to right-center in the top of the fifth, in the opener. Two walks were the only way two other Foresters reached base in a game cut to five frames because of the mercy rule.

The Wildcats had Lairen Miller’s number as they pounded out ten hits for 11 runs, all but one of which was earned. It was the HU ace’s worst loss of her Forester career as six runs were the most earned runs she had given up prior to tonight’s uncharacteristic outing. She handed out two free passes while striking out four during the four innings she spent in the circle. IWU scored six of their 11 runs by way of three long balls.

The freshmen tandem of Mallory West and Meghan Fretz shared pitching responsibilities in the nightcap to limit Wesleyan to just two runs, both in the fourth. Unfortunately, Huntington’s bats remained silent to make for a second straight shutout.

West was tagged with the lost. She tossed the first 3.1 innings and gave up four hits and both runs after which Fretz offered 2.2 innings of hitless, scoreless relief.

Four different Foresters posted a hit with Casey Lehman logging the only base poke for extra bases, a double in the fourth to deep right-center. Huntington’s most promising frame came in the second when Fretz led off with a single and two outs later Marty Harris claimed an infield single. However, winning pitcher Mckenzey Ridge made sure the Foresters didn’t find home by coaxing Krull into a groundout for the third out.

HU has a day off before hosting Grace on Friday at 3:00 p.m.
