The Martha’s Vineyard Regional High School (MVRHS) varsity boys baseball team fought hard against a powerful Falmouth team Thursday, but consistent hard hitting from the Clippers ended the game 15-0, Falmouth.
At the outset of the game, the Clippers started by hitting singles till the bases were loaded. A gap shot to left field sent two Falmouth hitters to home base, followed by another base hit to rack up three runs in the first few minutes of the game.
After finding another gap in outfield coverage, Falmouth scored another three, putting the score at 6-0. A grounder from the Falmouth team snuck by the Vineyard first base for another run for the Clippers.
At the bottom of the third, Falmouth slugger Jake McKenzie knocked it past the fence with two men on base.
The fourth inning was scoreless for both teams. After the Vineyard brought out pitcher Jared Regan to the mound, and Falmouth pitcher Samuel Greisbauer continued his impressive performance, both batting teams had difficulty making contact.
After yet another slug from Falmouth, they tacked two more runs onto their lead to set the score at 11-0.
In the fifth inning, Falmouth scored two, then matched that in the sixth, to set the final score 15-0.
The Vineyarders are currently 3-4 in their season, and will look to bounce back against their league rival Saint John Paul II High School on Tuesday at 3:15 pm at MVRHS.
