HHS baseball, softball teams in first place
Hamburg’s baseball and softball teams are on a path that could produce a pair of conference championships.
Both squads have moved into first place in 8-4A. The Lions are 12-2, 6-0 in 8-4A. The Lady Lions are 13-1 on the season and 4-0 in league games.
The Lions started a road game in Monticello on April 3 an hour early because of the threat of rain; however, the squad did not let a rough start – Monticello scored twice in the first inning – ruin the day as Hamburg rallied.
Hamburg rallied to take a 3-2 lead; the Billies came back to lead 4-3 and then Hamburg scored five runs in the seventh inning for the 8-4 victory.
Ten Lion batters participated in the seventh frame as Hamburg scored five runs on four hits.
Drake Streeter started the seventh inning with a walk and base hits by Connor Callaway and Darien Burns set up doubles by Darius Crite and Morris.
The Lady Lions forced Monticello to use five pitchers as they took advantage of every opportunity to score during a 17-3 rout.
Hamburg left the bases loaded during the first inning. The Lady Lions scored nine runs during the second inning and kept on scoring as the game continued.
