In the double feature today, the Rockets defeated Normandy HS in the second game. Starting pitcher Truman Ospelt went the distance only allowing 3 hits, striking out 8 and walking only 4 Normandy batters. He sealed the shutout victory for his second win of the season.
The Rocket offense went orbital in the 4th inning pushing across 2 runs. Scoring that inning were Senior Jack Lee (2 for 3) and Junior Ryan Keane (1 for 3) off of Liam Hanna’s triple. Also going 2 for 3 on the day was senior Kyle Huckelberry. Parker Thompson and Truman Ospelt each added a single in the game.
With the win, the Rockets improved their record to 12-11 overall and are now 7-4 in Great Lakes Conference play.
The Rockets return home for the conference finally on Monday versus Elyria Catholic.
