Beaver Baseball Goes 2-0 on the Week, defeating Landmark and Crushing the Brimmer Gators

SEBASTIAN SMITH ’11

Sebbby at the PlateOn Friday April 24th, the BCDS Varsity Baseball squad faced Landmark, a team that has gone undefeated against Beaver over the last three years. Even worse, Landmark no hit Beaver last year and one hit them earlier this season. With this in mind, the team was eager for a victory. Sebastian Smith started the game, throwing three innings and giving up two runs. The BCDS bats came alive in the first three innings as well. They had five hits and three runs in the second which gave them the lead. Shane Bourque pitched the next three innings. He got into trouble early in the fourth inning after two errors were committed. Bourque worked hard and only gave up one run. Shane’s determination inspired the team the next inning and answered by scoring three more runs that inning giving them a 6-3 lead. BCDS tagged on two more in the sixth. Luke Fraser, commonly known to the team as “Pap,” for his amazing closing abilities, ended the game with a ground out and two strikeouts.

Clay Marsh was the starting pitcher and worked well in the first two innings, only giving up three runs. Unfortunately, he had to leave due to elbow pain. The Beaver bats kept hot scoring three runs in the first, two in the second, and two in the third. Dan Fellman pitched in the third and fourth and gave up five runs; however, three runs were unearned due to errors. Beaver responded well at the plate by scoring five runs in the next two innings. Alex Jacobs made his pitching debut and struck out two in the fifth. He was the only pitcher in the game to not give up any runs. The BCDS team bashed five runs in the fifth which ended the game due to the mercy rule. The mercy rule means that the team that is winning is leading by at least ten runs at the end of the fifth inning. Dan Segel had a homerun and two triples with eight runs batted in; he is very deserving of an athletic accolade.
