Huntington, Ind. - Playing at Parkview Field didn’t turn out quite as the Forester baseball team (14-22) had hoped as they suffered a 20-1 loss to the Warriors of Indiana Tech on Thursday evening.
While the Warriors only outhit the Foresters 17-13, they took advantage of four HU errors and drew 11 walks on their way to a lopsided win. Tech took control in the opening inning by manhandling HU pitcher Dan Holcomb who lasted less than an inning giving up six runs, five earned, on two hits and four walks. The Warriors picked up four more runs in next inning before the Foresters finally got one back in the third on an RBI-single by Jamon Hamel. The Warriors continued to dominate by adding ten more runs in the next two innings on the way to the Foresters’ worst debacle in recent history.
Offensively, Hammel drove in the lone run and was one of five Foresters to pick up two hits on the night. Joining him was Blake Ayers, Brandon Van Matre, Josh Lanphier and Jordan Klopfenstein.
