ATHERTON: The Wolverines were slated to host Flint on Tuesday, but the game was canceled due to weather. A make-up date is scheduled for Wednesday, April 25 at Atherton. – A.V.

BENTLEY: On March 28, the Bulldogs destroyed Genesee in a doubleheader, winning 15-0 and 22-0 in games that both ended in a three-inning mercy.

“Our goal coming into this game was to be aggressive at the plate,” said Bentley coach Todd Schultz. “We came out swinging as we scored five runs in the first inning. That really set the tone as we went on to score two runs in the second inning and eight in the third to earn the mercy.”

Logan Pray earned the win on the mound for Bentley, finishing with a one-walk no-hitter with eight strikeouts in three innings. Jake Brand led the Bulldogs offensively with three hits. Seth Allinger, Nathan Nanney, Grant Gooch and Pray each added two hits.

Nanney started Game Two, allowing just one hit and one walk while striking out six in three innings. Nanney also led the Bulldogs’ at the plate with two hits, four RBI and a homerun.

“Sometimes it’s easy to let up after you get a win in the first game,” continued Schultz. “I was proud of the way we responded and continued to focus on our specific (progress) goals in this game.”

Brand added two hits and four more RBI, Pray had two hits and three RBI, and Alinger added two hits and two RBI. Edgar Maynard recorded two hits, his first at the varsity level.

On March 26, Bentley fell to Goodrich 5-0.

“Goodrich is a very good program and this was the first time that we really saw live pitching outside of practice,” stated Schultz. “We didn’t really hit the ball very good but we got a few guys on base and had a few chances to score.”

Pray only allowed two hits and struck out six batters in three innings but allowed two unearned runs. Pray was on a pitch count due to the weather and youth of the season. Don McMann came out of the bullpen to pitch two innings, before Maynard made his varsity debut on the mound by retiring all six batters he faced in the final two innings.

“Defensively, we played pretty good with the exception of a few plays which led to some runs,” added Schultz. “When you are playing a good team like Goodrich you can’t give them extra outs and expect them not to score some runs.”

The second game of the doubleheader was stopped due to weather in the fourth inning with Goodrich leading 3-0.

The Bulldogs hosts Perry tonight at 4 p.m. — J.O.
