Baseball Team Loses Home Opener to WCV, 8-2; At W-G on Thursday


The ACGC baseball team saw its record fall to 0-2 last night with an 8-2 loss at the hands of West Central Valley. The Chargers could muster little offense, as they had only three hits for the game and did not score until the seventh inning.

WCV struck early as it loaded the bases in the first inning on a single, a walk and a hit batsman. The Wildcats scored two runs in the inning, but it could have been worse. One run had scored and the bases were still loaded when a line drive was caught by Charger third baseman Will Byars who stepped on third to complete a double play. WCV scored one more run in the inning to lead 2-0 after the first. The Chargers threatened in their half of the inning when Caden Wardyn and Logan Brincks each reach base safely via a single and a walk respectively. Wardyn advanced to third on a ground out, but both he and Brincks were stranded on the base paths.

The Wildcats duplicated the two runs in the second inning. After the first two batters were retired, they put together three hits to scored two runs. In its at bat in the second, ACGC managed to get both Garrett Wahlhovd and Ben Kingery on base, but again they were left stranded.

WCV extended its lead to 6-0 after the fifth inning when ACGC put up its only to scores in bottom of the sixth. Quenton Spack led off the inning with a single, with Logan Brincks following that up with a base on balls. A wild pitch put the runners on second and third with no outs. Nathan Schiller drove in a run on a ground out and the Chargers were on the board. After Brincks advanced to third on a passed ball, Bryce Littler drove in Brincks when he grounded out to the shortstop. That was it for Charger scoring. WCV added two insurance runs in the seventh to make the final 8-2.

Littler, Spack and Kingery had the only Charger hits. Caden Wardyn started on the mound and took the loss, with Bryce Littler throwing the final three innings. Each struck out five batters. Wardyn surrendered six hits and five runs over four innings, while Littler gave up three hits and three runs in the final three innings.

ACGC saw its record fall to 0-2 overall, and 0-1 in the West Central Activities Conference. Woodward-Granger is up next, as the Chargers will travel to Woodward on Thursday. A junior varsity tilt will begin at 5:00, with the varsity game scheduled for 6:30.
