Knights outslugged by Holyoke 18-8
The CCRI Knights baseball team traveled to Holyoke, MA to play the Cougars of Holyoke Community College for a Region XXI non-league game. The Knights lost to the Cougars 18-8. With the loss the Knights fall to 14-8 on the season and 4-2 in Region XXI play.
CCRI- 8 Holyoke CC- 18
Holyoke Community College scored 18 runs in four innings as they outslugged CCRI. The Knights pitching suffered its worst loss of the season as Holyoke pounded out 16 hits from four different pitchers. Co-Captain Chris Peralta (Providence, RI) struggled early giving up eight runs in the first two innings to take the loss. The offense was led by Jamale Horn (Hoover, AL) and Andrew Crowley (Canton, CT) with three hits apiece. Mo Checo (Providence, RI) also chipped in with two hits. The 12 hit attack provided by the Knights wasn't enough to overcome the early Holyoke explosion.
The Knights have no time to rest as they will host the highly touted Pointers of the University of Connecticut at Avery Point for a Region XXI league doubleheader beginning at 12noon.
