Varsity sluggers swing and miss
Errors continued to plague the Tahoe-Truckee High School varsity baseball team, which lost three games at the Manogue Easter tournament last week.
Truckee fell 16-4 to Fernley on Wednesday, 15-4 to Incline on Thursday and 18-7 to Central Catholic on Friday.
In the first game, Fernley scored early with a run in the second inning and five in the third. Meanwhile, Truckee didn’t put one on the board until the fourth and wouldn’t score again until the sixth.
Tom Hernandez led the Wolverines in hitting with two singles and two RBIs, and was two for three.
Mike Detwiler hit .500 with a single and a triple, while Kyle Barth hit two singles.
Spencer Archer and Jeff Andrs each hit doubles, with Archer getting an RBI and running one in.
Though Truckee had 10 hits, Fernley topped that number with 18. TTHS made eight errors to Fernley’s two.
In the second game, Incline came out in the first inning with 10 runs, and the already-down Wolverines weren’t able to score until the fourth inning.
Andrs was good for a home run and an RBI, while Barth hit a single and a double and Hernandez hit a triple.
In total, 12 of Incline’s runs were unearned.
“Our errors were costly,” said head coach Craig Lawrence of Truckee’s nine errors.
The third game brought no better luck for the Truckee nine. Despite matching Central Catholic hit for hit (Truckee finished with eight hits, Catholic with nine), nine errors from TTHS shut the Wolverines down.
Lawrence, Andrs, Justin Long and Peter Kennelly each scored, with Long hitting a home run.
Ten of Catholic’s 18 runs were unearned.
TTHS will play at Sparks tomorrow afternoon at Don Mello Park.
The game will be a league match against Spring Creek.
Originally, this game was scheduled to take place at Truckee, but late spring snows have slowed the home opener at least another week.
