G-MU 13, Hunter-Tannersville 1
COPES CORNERS – G-MU won its Section IV, Class D opening game with a flurry of runs in the middle innings, Thursday against Hunter-Tannersville.
“It took a while to get going, but once we did, it was all over,” said G-MU coach Jim Johnson. “It was a different type of pitcher than what we’ve been facing, and the first time through the order, it fools you. We hit it hard and pretty often after the fourth inning.”
Trailing 1-0, G-MU put five runs on the board in the bottom of the fourth. Andrew Delmar’s single scored Tyler Wildfeir with the tying run, and Delmar came around to score the go-ahead run after a stolen base and two passed balls. Later in the inning, Cody Luettger had a two-run single.
Delmar used just 84 pitches striking out 11 and walking none. Only two Hunter-Tannersville batters reached base, and the Raiders played error-free ball.
Luettger, Nate Sloan, and Jon Scofield all had two RBI in the victory, the Raiders’ ninth straight.
G-MU (17-3) plays at Hancock today. The Wildcats were the last team to defeat the Raiders winning by a 2-0 shutout four weeks ago.
