Undefeated Woodward-Granger Shuts out Charger BB, 11-0

An undefeated Woodward-Granger baseball team scored in every inning and got a two hitter from pitcher Bryce Achenback to handle the ACGC Chargers 11-0 last night on the ACGC home field.

Charger mentor Taylor Morris was duly impressed with the Hawks. "Woodward Granger is undefeated and did all the small things right. They are well coached and are definitely one of the best teams in the WCAC. We were better overall, but not where we need to be to beat a team like Woodard-Granger. We need to take the things we did right and carry them over into our games this week at Madrid and Pleasantville."

After the Hawks scored three runs in its first at bat, the Chargers got singles from Avery Wheatley and Newell Rogers to start ACGC's first inning at the plate. But that was it--both were stranded as Achenbach then retired the next three batters and gave up zero hits for the rest of the game. The Hawk ace retired twelve consecutive Chargers before Reid Rumelhart reached safely on in error in the fifth and Miles Kading got on via a fielder's choice.

Meanwhile W-G added to its 3-0 lead in the second inning with three more scores. The Hawks totaled sixteen hits and added four runs in the third inning, two in the fourth, and one in the fifth. Game over.

Michael Ure started on the mound for ACGC and was relieved by Cayden Jensen in the fifth inning. Their states are listed below.

The loss drops the locals' record to 0-11 on the season and 0-9 in WCAC play. As coach Morris mentioned, the team will play a twin bill at Madrid tonight, with the first game scheduled for 5PM.
