Pacers blanked by Hopkinton in opener
HINSDALE, N.H. — The Hinsdale varsity baseball team opened up with a 7-0 loss to Hopkinton on Monday.
"That is a very good team we played today. They pitch well, hit well, and field well. I am very happy with the effort and game we played today. We need to keep improving and the wins will come. If our pitchers throw strikes, we will be competitive in a lot of baseball games," Hinsdale coach Sam Kilelee said.
Ryan Boggio, who struck out five, walked one, and gave up four hits in 6 1/3 innings of work, took the loss.
"Ryan threw the ball very well today. He threw a lot of strikes and only had one walk. We needed to make a few more plays behind him, but that will come with time," added Kilelee. "I am very happy with our effort today, considering we only got two practices outside before today."
Dylan Harden, Dan Tetreault, Andrew Lindsell, and Jason Cowan all hit safely for the 0-1 Pacers, who will visit Wilton on Wednesday at 4 p.m.
"We had the bases loaded twice and runners on second and third twice, and just could not get those runs in," the Hinsdale coach remarked. "We just needed a few hits in some key situations and, unfortunately, could not get those hits. We put the ball in play a lot and made them make plays. They did a very nice job making those plays to get themselves out of a few jams."
