The Troy Post 43 baseball team saw plenty of action last week. They opened the week with an 11-0 loss to Pickerington, as they could only muster four hits in the game.
“Pickerington is the strongest team in Columbus,” said Troy coach Frosty Brown. “Hopefully we learned from this performance.”
Troy then came back and lost to Coshocton 11-5, despite jumping out in front 2-0 in the opening inning.
Michael Hale doubled and Hunter Cohee added a double to give Troy a 1-0 lead. He then came into score when Kieran Williams hit, and Post 43 took the lead.
“This was Chase Weaver’s first start for us and I was happy we got him some run runs early,” Brown said. “He is a sophomore and got too close to the plate a couple of times.” Coshocton scored three times in the second, and four more in the fourth inning to take a 7-2 lead.
Troy also lost to East Lansing 5-2, after falling behind 3-0 early.
“I again felt this was a game we could have won,” Brown said. “I know how important it is for our team to have the lead, and we just didn’t get it done.”
Troy then captured an 8-5 win over Napoleon Legion after jumping out to a quick lead and this time, they never looked back.
“Chris Heisey threw 117 pitches and held them to just six hits,” Brown said. “He had the best fastball of the summer and his slider just seemed to disappear.”
Cohee and Nesbitt each triples for Troy, while Hale blasted a homerun.
