Redhawk baseball squad searching for offense (4/23/09)

April 23, 2009

The Champlain Valley Union High baseball team, 0-2 in the wake of Tuesday’s 11-1 defeat at the hands and bats of Spaulding High in Barre, hopes to get some boom back into the bats Saturday when the Crimson Tide rolls into Hinesburg for the second of the home-and-home series. Game time is 11 a.m.

The Redhawks kept it close Tuesday until Spaulding struck for seven runs in the bottom of the fifth to break open a 4-1 contest.

CVU managed just four hits off Tide starter Isaac Ramson, who worked six frames.

Alec Zullo singled home the Redhawks’ lone run, while Andrew Nick whacked the Hawks’ lone extra base blast, a double.

Coach Tim Albertson’s team will complete a two-game home stand Tuesday afternoon when Mount Mansfield Union comes calling.
