Charger Baseball Comes Close, But Falls to CAM, 7-6


Despite its best offensive performance of the season, the ACGC baseball team lost a one run decision, 7-6, to CAM in a non-confernce game on Friday night. The Chargers had their best night at the plate, as they recorded ten base hits, nearly a third of the season total.

Trailing 5-0 going into the bottom of the fifth inning, the Chargers scored two in the fifth and added four more runs in the sixth to take a 6-5 lead. Unfortunately, the Cougars cam up with a two run seventh inning and held the Charger scoreless in the bottom of the seventh to come away with the 7-6 win.

Caden Wardyn went a perfect four for four at the plate for the Chargers that included a double and an RBI. Quenton Spack also had a multiple hit performance, as he came up with two singles and an RBI. Owen Hansen also had a double and Will Byars' single drove in two runs. The Chargers also managed a season high six stolen bases, with Waryn accounting for three of the steals.

Charger pitching gave up only five hits to the Cougars. Byars started the game on the mound and went four and two thirds innings, striking out seven and walking four, while surrendering two runs on four hits. Ben Kingery entered in the fifth inning and finished the game, giving up three runs on three hits. He struck out two and walked two, taking the loss when CAM scored two in the seventh inning.

The loss drops the teams' record to 0-6 on the season. The team will return to conference play tonight when it travels to Panorama for a 6:30 game. Tuesday ACGC will entertain Woodward-Granger in a WCAC contest, also scheduled for 6:30.
