On Monday, April 29, Spartan baseball hosted Mounds Park Academy for a doubleheader. Under the pitching leadership of Andrew Johnson '19, the Spartans won the first game 3-1. Johnson pitched all seven innings and had eight strikeouts. The team also saw great at-bats from Joshua Meitz '20, Johnson, Ryan Moore '19, and Boden Strafelda '22 and solid team defense.
In the second game, the Spartans led through the first five innings. Unfortunately, MPA tied things up in the bottom of the fifth and then pulled ahead in the sixth. Despite good play by SPA, the misstep was too much for the team to overcome and the Spartans lost 6-5.
Next up: The team will play Minnehaha on Saturday, May 4.
