On Saturday, April 27, Spartan baseball took on St. Agnes in highly competitive and back-and-forth game at Central High School.
St. Agnes earned the first three runs of the ball game in the second inning. The lead was shortlived, however, with SPA equalizing the score the next inning. The score then remained tied until the fifth inning when St. Agnes scored the go-ahead run (5-4). SPA came up empty in the sixth inning but knew what they needed to do in the seventh after recently beating Blake in a come-from-behind victory. Captain Ryan Moore '19 put in the work first with a game-winning hit in the seventh to put the Spartans ahead and then Ethan Richman finished off the game on the pitching mound to give SPA the win, 7-5.
Judah Thomas '22 earned the victory as the pitcher and also led the team with three hits. Boden Strafelda '22 also had a good day at bat with two hits of his own. Finally, upperclassmen Ryan Moore '19 had two RBIs and Ethan Richman '20 had three RBIs.
Next up: The Spartans host MPA at home on Monday, April 29 for a doubleheader. The first pitch of the first game will be at 3:30 p.m. -- Go SPA!
