Beaver Mercies Landmark As Freshman Hurls Two Hitter

SEBASTIAN SMITH ’11

On Monday the Beaver Baseball team traveled to Landmark for a rematch after losing 6-4 earlier in the season. This was also senior skip day and the Monday after prom so the team was doubtful that they could take on a top of the league team. BCDS proved to do much more than compete, and won by the ten run mercy rule. Devon Friedfertig ’13 took the mound for Beaver and could not have put on a better show. In the first two innings he hurled 20 pitches, averaging just over three pitches for each hitter, an almost unheard of feat. He went on to retire every batter he faced besides a single and double in the fourth which scored the only run Landmark got for the day. Friedfertig struck out five in the fifth inning game, which was shortened two innings because of mercy rule.

The team also played flawless defense lead by Connor Laubenstein ’12 who made two run saving snags at first base to uphold Devon’s great performance. On an offensive note, captain Dan Fellman ’10  lead the team going 2-4 with 5 runs batted in, Captain Dan Segel added two RBIs of his own. Freshman Alex Gosman picked up his first hit of the season with a single to start the 4 run rally in the third. Varsity baseball has two other games this week against rival Pingre and a strong ISL league Rivers team. Come out to one of the next few games, BCDS will be sure to put on a show you will not soon forget.
