Today our Hustlin’ Hawks Baseball Program held an intrasquad scrimmage. The players wore their favorite Select/Summerball/Little League jerseys for this “All-Star” game.
Team 1 got out to a 2 run lead in the top of the 1st inning. Frankie Grenz drove in the first run with an RBI single and Nick Acompanado drove in a run with a hustlin’ infield single. Team 2 posted 2 runs in the bottom of the frame. Brett Hull doubled to drive in a run and Chase Steffen then doubled in a run to tie the game.
In the top of the second inning Ryan Graf started things with a double down the left field line. A couple batters later Nick Acompanado drove in 2 on a double. Frankie Grenz would pitch a scoreless inning in the bottom half to keep the 4-2 lead after 2 innings.
In the top of the third Chase Steffen would pitch a 1-2-3 inning striking out 1 and getting the other outs with good defense behind him. In the bottom of the third Team 1 would give up the lead with some shaky pitching and defense, finishing the game in a 4-4 tie.
