Laurier: 15 Guelph: 1

The Wilfrid Laurier Men’s Baseball team hosted the first place Guelph Gryphons on Saturday at Bechtel Park. It was a cold and windy day that saw Laurier prevail 15-1 in game one.  Game two was stopped in the 5th inning due to poor field conditions with Guelph ahead 3-1.  Game two will be picked up where it was stopped on Tuesday night at Bechtel Park at 6:30pm.

Laurier jumped on Guelph’s starting pitcher in the first inning with 3 quick runs.  The Golden Hawks blew the game open in the 3rd inning when they put up 9 runs to take a commanding lead and cruised to a 15-1 victory.  Jordan Petruska was very efficient in earning the victory for Laurier.  He threw 6 innings giving up 1 run on 3 hits with 1 walk and 1 strikeout.  Austin Hassani worked a scoreless seventh inning to close out the game that ended after 7 innings with the mercy rule being invoked.   Laurier put up 16 hits on the afternoon and were led by Jonathan Brouse with 4 hits; Alex Kupchak with 3 hits; John King and Ryley Davenport with 2 hits apiece and other hits to Daniel Apostoli, Brett Medland, Adam Shaver, Cal Murphy and Matt Voight.

“We really broke out offensively today against a good pitcher” commented Head Coach SCOTT BALLANTYNE.  “Jeff Hunt manufactured a run for us without a hit to lead-off the game and then we took advantage of some mistakes that they made.  After the tough loss to Western last weekend, I was glad to see our guys come out and put together a complete game against a really tough Guelph team”.

Laurier will return to action on Sunday as they host the York Lions for a doubleheader starting at noon at Bechtel Park.
